following from General Humphreys: Please let me know where your right will rest, that I may connect with you? General Miles has relieved General Griffin, and I find a vacant space on his left. To this I at once replied as follows: ps behind this line. Information of these events was sent to General Humphreys early in their occurrence,and he sent General Miles' division to close the space between his left and General Griffin's right. One brigade of this, also, advanced to thk on Griffin, and, of course, in much confusion. Griffin's troops held the enemy at the Run west of the Plank-road. General Miles' division a brigade of it afterward attacked the enemy and were forced back on my right. My skirmish line in fronth the whole available corps, took place a little after the time specified above. General Humphrey's division, under General Miles, also advanced against the enemy about the same period on our right, but the movement was not made in close connectio
les, caused him serious annoyance. During the night the Eighth North Carolina relieved the Nineteenth Georgia, and a detachment of the Twentieth South Carolina volunteers, Captains Chichester's and Mathews' companies of artillery, relieved Captains Miles' and Hunter's. The different detachments of artillery from light batteries and siege trains were also changed. This work was accomplished, as before, under the direction of Major Motte A. Pringle, Quartermaster, with the assistance of the nas approaches were kept up, but being checked by the riflemen and artillery, his progress was slow. During the night, the Charleston battalion relieved the First Georgia battalion, and a company of the Second South Carolina artillery relieved Captain Miles' company (acting artillery) at Battery Wagner. The garrison was otherwise supplied and provisioned. An additional supply of ammunition was transported from Sumter to Sullivan's Island. Batteries Cheves and Simkins had kept up their fire

ready in position, swept them away and were close upon the bridge before Phifer's brigade, commanded by Colonel Ross, could cross and form and meet them. (We lost four of our guns here.) Nothing remained for us now but to dispute the enemy's passage over the bridge, and to hold him in check as long as possible. This was gallantly done for more than an hour by the remnants of Moore's, Phifer's, and Cabell's brigades, and by the batteries of Hogg, Sengstack, Dawson, Lieutenant Moore and Lieutenant Miles, superintended by Major Burnett.

I enclose herewith the reports of the several brigade commanders, and refer you to them for more detailed accounts of these actions than I
