‘ [316] get permission for me to go for a little while; I will surely be back before you move.’ Hardly knowing what to do, the next morning, I went to General Corse (we were happy to be under this gallant man even for a short time), and explained the situation to him.

“You are right,” said he, “but you must have General Longstreet's permission.” He has just passed up the road. I put out after him, and found him, dismounted and alone. I asked permission to send out one or two men to warn some absentees, as we were about to move. ‘Not a man,’ said he; ‘better hold on to all you have got.’

These men joined us before night. We needed them.
