[659] is an officer eminently qualified for his duties, discharged them in a highly satisfactory manner.

First Lieutenant J. K. Boswell, Chief Engineer, rendered valuable service.

Though Winchester was not recovered, yet the more important object of the .present, that of calling back troops that were leaving the valley, and thus preventing a junction of Banks' command with other forces, was accomplished in addition to his heavy loss in killed and wounded. Under these circumstances, I feel justified in saying that though the field is in possession of the enemy, yet the most essential fruits of the battle are ours.

Respectfully your obedient servant,

T. J. Jackson, Major-General. Major T. G. Rhett, A. A. General D. N., Va.
