A call for artillery.

Please have the following telegraphed to General R. E. Lee:

Brown's Gap, June 11, 1862.—Send four pieces of artillery with every thousand infantry.

T. J. Jackson, Major General.

Major: Please forward the above by telegraph. I hope to get you a colonelcy.

Yours truly,

The above telegram was one to General Lee, saying he need not send transportation with the troops or horses for the artillery, as they could be supplied by me at Staunton.

A. W. H.
