of my division, wounded Colonel Misner, and killed his orderly and three men. These facts were related by a non-commissioned officer among the prisoners. My thanks are especially due to those of my personal staff who were present. Major Watts, Inspector-General; Major Halliday, Chief Commissary; Lieutenant George Moorman, Aide-de-Camp; Lieutenant Tilghman, Aide-de-Camp ; rendered the most efficient and valuable service. I notice with great pleasure, also, Lieutenant Barbour, commanding my body-guard, together with Lieutenant Lundy, of that company. These officers and their men rendered me great aid. The timely service of Lieutenant Barbour, on my right wing, may have saved us probably from serious injury. The whole force engaged on our side may be stated as not exceeding thirteen hundred men, whilst the enemy is known to have had not less than five regiments, numbering not less than thirty-five hundred men. Enclosed I have the honor to submit a correct list of the killed and wounded on our side. I regret the absence of Captain Powhatan Ellis, Chief of Staff, during the action. He was engaged at my headquarters in an important business; and I was thus deprived of his valuable services. The same may be said of others of my staff who were absent on duty at various points. Respectfully, your obedient servant,
