General N. H. Harris writes as follows:
Vicksburg, Miss., February 4th, 1884. Rev. J. William Jones, D. D., Secretary Southern Historical Society, Richmond, Va:
My Dear Sir,—In the January number Southern Historical so-Ciety papers, just received, page 8, appears: Organization of the Army of Northern Virginia, August 31st, 1864, page 13, Mahone's division, it is stated that Colonel Joseph M. Jayne was in command of Harris's brigade.
This is an error; I was in command of the brigade, and Colonel Joseph M. Jayne was in command of his regiment, the Forty-eighth Mississippi. Lieutenant-Colonel Thomas B. Manlove, of the Forty-eighth regiment, by my assignment, was in command of the Twelfth regiment, and Lieutenant-Colonel James H. Duncan, of the Nineteenth regiment, by my assignment was in command of the Sixteenth regiment.
