Report of Captain E. C. Fox.
Richmond on the 5th day of March. I was informed by Lieutenant Pollard, of the Ninth Virginia Cavalry, that the enemy were advancing through King William county. I immediately ordered my men to report for duty, and succeeded in assembling twenty-eight at King & Queen Courthouse. Lieutenant Pollard came up in their rear and engaged their rearguard near Bruington Church, skirmishing for several miles. They halted and fed near Mantipike.
