Zzzthe petty fight the Federals made.

And all that any of them did was to make the little fight that General Davies reports at 10:30 P. M. of the 16th. He reports from Proctor's, on the Jerusalem plank road, that he marched there at 12:30 P. M., and sent a brigade over the Jerusalem plank road to intercept the enemy; met them at a point about five miles hence, and drove them about a mile (he did not drive us; we were going for all we were worth) to the vicinity of Hawkinsville, where he found them strongly posted behind earthworks, having in their front an impassable swamp. He moved down and found General W. H. F. Lee's Division, which he failed to dislodge, and gave up the job on that road and sent a brigade to Stony Creek to try and intercept the head of the column there. All this time our cattle were on the trot, and with all their forces they could not stop them.
