re the regret of our gallant friend, General M. D. Corse, that in printing his report of the operations of Kemper's brigade, at Second Manassas (page 538, volume viii), in our last number, we should have allowed the name to be corrupted into Florrence. Colonel Ed. A. Palfrey, of New Orleans, informs us that he was not the author of the article on The secret history of Gettysburg, with which we credited him in our last, but that it was written by Captain W. J. Seymour, who served on General Hays's staff — the only connection Colonel Palfrey having with it being to furnish copies of the letters of Generals Lee and Cooper.

our brigade sent back. Fight at Bristow Station. On our march to this place we guarded the wagon train and a part of the artillery of A. P. Hill's corps. At Bristow we formed line of battle on the left of the road, in an old open field, and were under fire, but were not ordered forward. After the enemy retired we assisted in tearing up and destroying the railroad track to the Rappahanock river, and then went into camp near Brandy Station. Here we remained until after the capture of Hays and Hoke's brigades at the river. We then, with the rest of our corps, formed line of battle near Culpeper Court-house. We were subsequently, on the same day, ordered to the Warrenton road to repel the advance of the enemy's cavalry. Repulse of the enemy's cavalry on the Warrenton road. On reaching this point a courier reported that our cavalry was hard pressed and would be compelled to retire. I replied that when they did come back they must do so at full speed. This small body of

rank of Major-General, lost a leg at Gettysburg and gave most untiring service to the cause he came from Maryland to expouse. Gen. Elzey was also a Marylander who had won a fine reputation in the old army, who had been called by Beauregard at First Manassas, the Blucher of the day, who became also a Major-General, and who was recognized as an accomplished and gallant soldier. Besides there were then serving in the division, J. A. Walker, J. E. B. Terrill, Geo. H. Steuart, B. T. Johnson, Hays, York, J. M. Jones, Posey, Canty and others, who afterwards won the wreath and stars. While watching Banks, and awaiting Jackson's movements, we luxuriated in the green fields, the beautiful groves the clear streams, the magnificent scenery, and (what was, perhaps, even more appreciated), the delicious milk and elegant apple-butter of the glorious valley. But we had not long to wait. General Banks retreated down the valley, and took a strong position at Strausburg, while Jackson raised
