skill, rendered invaluable assistance to the wounded.
My mounted orderlies, Frank Brough, Frank Webb, Albert Woods, William D. Smith, Martin Mann, and Lewis Miller, of the Second Indiana cavalry, and George Shirk and Isaac Bigelow, of the Thirty-sixth Indiana infantry, rendered me valuable services.
But I am left to remember and lament, with friends, the fall, in this mighty struggle for human progress,of such brave spirits as Colonel Jones, Major Terry, Captain Weller, Captain Shults, Captain King, Adjutant Williams, Lieutenant Foster, Lieutenant Ball, Lieutenant Abercrombie, and others, whose earthly conflicts closed with these battles.
I may truthfully add, that I mourn with those who mourn, over these irreparable losses.
To the brave wounded, whose fate may or may not be uncertain — you have my earnest prayer for a speedy restoration to health and usefulness.
