on that never-to-be-forgotten retreat from Petersburg to Appomattox; who saved a part of the cavalry from a shameful stampede at Namazine Creek; who met and successfully resisted the charging columns of General Custer near Amelia Courthouse, saving, in all probability, the great Lee from capture; who, as before mentioned, captured the last guns at Appomattox, and having remained faithful and loyal to the last, I beg that you will give this a place in your forthcoming volume, to the end that their devotion to duty and a proof of their heroic valor may be preserved and transmitted to those who are to come after them. Very respectfully,
