June 23.

Yesterday Cockrell had fourteen men wounded. All quiet this morning. During the night the enemy removed their tents, wagons, etc., from their abandoned encampment that was shelled yester-day, and the place looks desolate. At 10 A. M., when all was quiet on the mountain, the enemy commenced a rapid artillery fire from guns put in position during the night, and concentrated it on our guns on the mountain. Yesterday we had it all our own way-to-day they are repaying us, and the cannonade is “fast and furious.” Last night there was fighting on our left, but so different are the reports received that I cannot get at the truth.
