[31] conduct fell under my personal observation, I must refrain from doing so, lest by omitting others I should do injustice to many equally as meritorious.

Annexed is a list of the casualties in my regiment. Many of those reported missing, I have learned, have either been killed or wounded, but as yet I have not ascertained their names.

Respectfully submitted,

Addison Farnsworth, Lieut.-Col. Comm'g Thirty-eighth Reg't, N. Y. V., (Second Scott Life Guard.)
