In addition to the above, which is a list of the captured property that came into my possession, a considerable amount came into the hands of the various quartermasters of the command, which it is supposed they have reported to Richmond. A large amount of the property captured, however, was not turned into the quartermaster's department at all — the order to turn over such property not having been fully carried out, especially by the cavalry.

A very large amount of medical and ordnance stores were captured and sent off by me, for the character and amounts of which I refer you to the heads of those departments. Throughout the corps, many worn-out wagons were exchanged for good Yankee ones — the useless ones being left behind.

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,

John A. Harman, Major and Chief Quartermaster, Second Corps.
