vern, on that road, and informs me that all the enemy's cavalry are massed here, none having gone towards James river. Now, General, if we can make a combined attack on them with Hunton's brigade I cannot see how they can escape. I have attacked once and feel confident of success. They drove our extreme left back a little, but we have been driving their rear and left. As soon as Gordon joins my right I will try them again, and expect to get so as to command the intersection. There is a road, however, coming in just by Delaplaine's, in sight of Yellow Tavern, from which the enemy can move towards Meadow bridge, which, however, I hear is burned. I keep my artillery bearing on a dust near Yellow Tavern. The enemy fights entirely as infantry to-day — though yesterday we got in with sabres with good execution. I am glad to report enemy's killed large in proportion. Most respectfully, J. E. B. Stuart, Major-General. The enemy may yet turn toward James river. J. E. B. S.

had, and to have saddled them for him, too. Jackson rode into Richmond so quietly that no one knew of his presence; had his interview with General Lee; received all of the instructions necessary to enable him to carry out his part of the great battle which was to culminate in McClellan's change of base, and galloped back to the head of his column before it was suspected that he had been absent at all. And now we hurried forward to bivouac near Ashland, in the slashes of Hanover, and to march the next day to our position on the flank, while A. P. Hill led his splendid Light division across the Chickahominy at Meadow Bridge and opened the great battle by advancing on the enemy at Mechanicsville. But of these battles, the part borne in them by the Foot cavalry and the masterly retreat made by McClellan in his change of base, I must speak in my next. I have only been able to give in this an imperfect sketch of how we were transferred from the mountains to the Chickahominy.

But the burning of the bridges and the blockading of the roads by the enemy so impeded our march that we only reached the vicinity of Ashland that night, and were not able to move again until sunrise on the morning of the 26th, and even then we made such slow progress that we only reached Pole Green Church in the afternoon, just as that gallant soldier, A. P. Hill (impatient of further delay, and unwilling to wait longer for Jackson to turn the position), had crossed the Chickahominy at Meadow Bridge and was leading his heroic Light division down on the position of the enemy at Mechanicsville. I shall never forget the scene among the foot cavalry when Hill's guns announced that the great battle had opened. Cheer after cheer ran along the whole line, and the column hastened forward with the eagerness of veterans to reach their place in the picture near the flashing of the guns. But we were too late that evening to get into the fight or help our comrades by turning the strong positi
