Strength of Ewell's division in the campaign of 1862--field returns. Lynchburg, May 3, 1880. Dr. John William Jones, Secretary Southern Historical Society: Sir — I have recently obtained from one of my staff officers, who had charge of them, a large number of the official papers of Ewell's division, subsequently commanded by. me, and among them I find the official returns of the strength of the division at and before the important campaigns and battles of 1862, in which it participated, and as it happens that these returns are not among those in the Confederate archives at Washington, to which Colonel Taylor had access, and from which he has given abstracts in his Four year's with General Lee, I send you herewith abstracts from the returns of the division, which will show its strength in the Valley campaign of 1862, at the Seven Days Battles around Richmond, and in the campaign of August, 1862, against Pope. The returns of Lawton's brigade, when it joined Ewell's division,

There is no return of Taylor's brigade of that date, but the return for May, made on the 1st of June, show a diminution of more than 400 in the effective strength of that brigade. When the division went to the Valley, Elzey's brigade was composed of the Thirteenth Virginia regiment, the First Maryland regiment, and a battery of artillery. On the 14th of June, 1862, just four days after the battle of Port Republic, the returns then made show t

The returns of Lawton's brigade, when it joined Ewell's division, will give the means of estimating the strength of that brigade in the Seven Days Battles, about which some persons appear to be under a great misapprehension. I send also the official report of General Trimble of the operations of his brigade about Manassas, in August, 1862, which happens not to be published among the reports of the operations of the Army of Northern Virginia for 1862, owing to the fact that the report was
