Their skirmishers drive yours like whipped curs before them whenever they dare to come in their way. You lie in your works like ground-hogs, rooting in the earth for safety ! Afford you an opportunity ! Why, you miserable slave of a Baboon, the Confederate colors are in sight of the Capital at Washington !

When our men drive you from the next height, do not run into shelter like the genuine heroes of Ball Run, but support your advanced guard with your whole force.
