Hancock concludes his report of operations at Deep Bottom as follows: I continued holding the line during the 29th witter dark on the 29th, . . . . I withdrew the entire command from Deep Bottom, and reported . . . . at Petersburg, on the morning of the 30th,y identical with those furnished me in July, when operating from Deep Bottom.
