Colonel Ed. A. Palfrey, of New Orleans, informs us that he was not the author of the article on The secret history of Gettysburg, with which we credited him in our last, but that it was written by Captain W. J. Seymour, who served on General Hays's staff — the only connection Colonel Palfrey having with it being to furnish copies of the letters of Generals Lee and Cooper.

We regret that we were led into this mistake by the friend who sent us the paper. We are always careful to have a responsible name attached to everything we publish, and this is the first instance in which we have gotten the wrong name.
