a. m. that day, and moved to our present position, about one and a half miles east of town, arriving here at 12 m., remaining here since, my loss in killed being 1; wounded, 15; captured, 5; total, 21. The condition of this command in arms is good, in clothing is fair, in discipline fair, in spirits good. I am under many obligations to Colonel Kirby, commanding brigade, and his staff for their kindness and leniency to me who has occupied a position during the campaign higher than my rank would warrant. To Dr. J. L. Reat, surgeon of this regiment, I am under obligations for the kindness and care shown to the sick and wounded of this command, and I would take this method of returning thanks to all officers and men of this command for the energy and zeal shown in our noble cause, and their promptness in obeying all and every order given them, regardless of time or place. I also thank Sergt. Maj. E. Mack and my orderly, J. A. Pierce, for the promptness displayed in carrying orders while under fire. I have the honor to remain, your obedient servant,
