near Petersburg, December 18, 1864.1
* * * I have just been ordered to instruct Major Wooton ‘to catch two or three Yankees’ to find out where the Nineteenth Yankee corps is. I would not be surprised when he makes the attack on the enemy's skirmish line to hear a shell come whizzing or bursting over my new quarters. * * * *
