Privates Benjamin F. Weller, Company “E,” and Robert W. Goode, Gompany “G,” First Virginia cavalry, as couriers at these headquarters, rendered distinguished service, exhibiting rare intelligence, great daring and heroism.

My field telegraph operator, J. Thompson Quarles, was present throughout, and when no opportunity offered for practicing in his profession, was active and enterprising in the discharge of other duties assigned him.

Acting Surgeon S. A. Nelson, Fourth Virginia cavalry, was ever faithful and indefatigable in his operations, and was ever ready and willing for duty.

J. E. B. Stuart, Major-General Commanding.
