my, overwhelmed by Generals Snow and Ice. Mouton, to perish gloriously at Mansfield, has this to say for Richard Taylor: It is due to the truth of history that I shall here record the fact that the salvation of our retiring army was entirely owing to the bold and determined attack of our troops under the immediate command of Major-General Taylor, he leading the van upon the enemy, at early dawn—thoroughly arresting the advance of the whole force of the enemy, 8,000-to 10,000 strong, with not over 1,200 men, until our retreating forces had gotten far on the road leading to the Cypremort and beyond the reach of pursuit. In reverse, this is like Napoleon at Elba praising Lannes! Mouton's retreat was not effected without some checks. Hearing that the enemy were not only already in Frank- lin, but that they were in position to cut off his retreat, Mouton succeeded by means of a by-path well known to him, a Creole of the Attakapas, in extricating his command from a perilous position.
