[41] Volunteer Aid-de-Camp until disabled in the left arm, by the explosion of a shell, near the close of the first day; of Captain G. M. Beck, Volunteer Aid-de-Camp; and of Colonel S. S. Heard, Louisiana volunteers, who volunteered and rendered important services in the field on both days, and of Doctor J. S. Sandidge, who volunteered professionally, and although partially disabled by being thrown against a tree, accompanied me to the end of the contest.

Major Hallonquist, Chief of Artillery, rendered me important services during a part of the second day.

I have to regret the loss of Lieutenant Benjamin King, Acting Assistant Adjutant-General, killed during the first day, and of Private Munsel W. Chapman, of the Seventh Louisiana volunteers, my secretary; and of Corporal Adam Cleniger, and Private John Stenaker, of Captain Cox's cavalry, who were killed while serving as couriers under my immediate orders.

I am, Sir, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

Daniel Ruggles, Brigadier-General C. S. A. Official: R. M. Hooe, A. A. G.
