Such were theto drive the Federals across Flint river, at Jonesboroa. I also instructed him, in the event of faiG. W. Smith, anxiously awaiting tidings from Jonesboroa.

I have not accused you of heartless cruelty, but merely instance these cases of very red to flee from your fraternal embraces. You are equally unfortunate in your attempt to find a justification for this act of cruelty, either in the defence of Jonesboroa, by General Hardee, or of Atlanta, by myself.

I defended Atlanta at the same risk and cost. If there was any fault in either case, it was your own, in not giving notice, especially in the case of Atlanta, of your purpose to shell the town, which is usual in war among civilized nations.
