On Tuesday the Yankees crossed from Folly Island to Klawah, and thence to Seabrook's Island, killing and capturing several of our pickets at Hanover At that point Major Jenkins, with 150 men, including a company of the 59th Virginia, under Capt. Jenett, made a stand.
Reinforcements were sent for, and Cols. Tabb and Page arrived on the ground.
The Mercury says:
On Wednesday evening Gen. Wise arrived, finding Page and Jenkins scouting the foe within a mile of the Hanover.
The Yankees'and fatigued to follow them.
The enemy retired in confusion to Hanover, burnt the Seabrook houses there, and before day crossed back to Klawah, burning the bridge behind them.
Major Jenkins lost about twelve men killed, wounded and missing; Jenett's company about four on Tuesday.
We captured four prisoners on that day. On Thursday we had two wounded, none killed or missing.
The enemy lost on Thursday six killed and seven wounded that we know of but doubtless there were more.
