[350] wrote some for the members of other batteries, including one for Oliver, of Lowry's battery. The last thing I wrote dated ‘Headquarters, Bryan's Battery, McLaughlin's Artillery Battalion,’ was a furlough for Sergeant G. W. Branham. From our records I prepared as complete a list as I could of all the men that ever had belonged to Bryan's Battery. Sergeant Branham got me to make him a copy of it.

‘When the furloughs were ready the artillery was cut down and the wagons made ready to be burned on the next day.’

[It is to be hoped that this absurd proceeding was stopped before the wagons were actually burned. No conceivable good could be accomplished by it, and our people needed the wagons greatly. ]

McLaughlin's battalion scattered on every road and was no more.
