M., or about that; time, says: ‘This was about the last firing of my battery, on the 6th instant.’Captain Ketchum, in his Report (ibid. pp. 340, 341), says: ‘Colonel Pond's fine brigade was badly cut up in a charge on a battery, in one of these camps, which, I have always thought, might have been avoided, had my battery not been withdrawn from the advance I was making on this camp.’ General Chalmers, in his Report, p. 260, says: ‘During this engagement, Gage's battery was brought up to our assistance, but suffered so severely that it was soon compelled to retire.’ See also Pond's and Mouton's Reports, as to the separate and isolated action of their commands.
