of our own infantry who had been captured in the morning. The pursuit was pressed on with but trivial opposition until we reached Stony creek, where the enemy (having torn up the bridge) made a stand, but were soon dislodged by General Lomax, with his men dismounted, when the pursuit was again resumed and pressed far into the night. The next morning, on crossing Nottoway river, we found that the enemy had there abandoned their last gun, which I recovered from the river, into which they had thrown it, and it was brought back with us on our return. The conduct of my men and officers was in the highest degree creditable to them. Your obedient servant, (Signed)
W. C. Wickham, Brigadier General.
