ther regiments of the brigade falling back, I gave the order to retire by the right flank, on double-quick, which was done (but with some confusion) to a lane about four hundred yards in a north-westerly direction, where I placed Capts. Willett, Whiting, and Comstock, and Lieut. Wells's companies, in a very good position.
But few of our shots were wasted, the colors of the leading column of the enemy again falling under our fire; but being closely pressed, I ordered these companies to retire ond privates A. Bigley, Joseph Guthrie, Jos. J. Lloyd, Chas. Nelson, Henry Schecter, Co. I; privates Mich.
Schabinger, Frank Diesel, John P. Adams, Fred. L. Phillips, John Reed, Co. K.
