things combined proved that both men and officers acted well and gallantly. For the part each regiment performed in the action, I have the honor to refer you to the accompanying report of the colonels. I cannot close this report without mentioning the efficient aid rendered me by Captain Walker, my Inspector-General, and the judicious assistance rendered me by Captain Kibbee, Tenth Georgia regiment, acting Assistant Adjutant-General, and to the gallantry shown by my personal aid, Lieutenant Townsend, who was wounded early in these battles. To Couriers Morris and Dobbs I am indebted for much assistance in the fight, for their bravery and energy, forcing to the front the few men who manifested a disposition to straggle to the rear. The command lost killed 31 men and officers and 102 wounded. I am, Goode Bryan, Brigadier-General. Report of General William Mahone. headquarters Mahone's brigade.

This catalogue was completed on Monday last, and I took it on to Washington, where I had a most satisfactory interview with Adjutant-General Townsend, who now has charge of the whole matter of the archives and their publication; Colonel R.

We published in the November number of the Papers so full an account of our relations with the Archive Bureau, and our efforts to obtain access to the documents, &c., on file there, that little need be said here concerning it.

You will bear us witness that we have done little of this heretofore, but this is the last number of the year, and — well, we had as well tell the whole truth--we want you to renew and to get us some new subscribers. Our relations with the Archive office in Washington continue to be of the most pleasant and satisfactory character, and we have received from all of the officers connected with the department the most courteous and accommodating kindness. Adjutant-General Townsend seems deeply interested in the work of completing — with a View to the ultimate publication of — the files of his Bureau, and manifests not only an intelligent zeal but a sound judgment in the direction of the whole business. He is also diligently collecting for the library of the War Department such books, documents, photographs, relics, &c., as shall illustrate the military history of the whole country, from colonial times down to the present.
