one rifle piece to report to Brigadier-General Daniel near the Antietam Creek. The rifle piece was engaged for a short time. I then received orders to move my command, in connection with General Johnson's division, to a point about equi-distant from the National road and the Williamsport and Hagerstown turnpike, and one mile and a-half from the town. On Saturday, the 10th, I was ordered to post my batteries, two on the left of Williamsport road and one immediately to the left of the Frankstown and Williamsport road, supported by a portion of General Johnson's division. We remained in position until Monday evening, awaiting an attack of the enemy, when we fell back in the direction of Williamsport. Arriving at that place, we were ordered to move to Falling Waters and cross the river on a pontoon bridge, which we did, reaching the Virginia shore about 9 A. M. Tuesday, 14th, and emcamping about six miles from the river. I remain, Colonel, very respectfully, your obedient serva

nd after a most distressing march, camped at Monterey Springs the night of the 5th. We arrived at Hagerstown the next evening, and camped about one mile from the town. On the 8th of July Captain Manly's battery was ordered to picket near Frankstown, Md., on the Antietam. On Friday, July 10th, this battery crossed the Antietam and went to the assistance of General Stuart's cavalry. They engaged the enemy at about 6 A.

ich the first charge was made, who were unable to keep up on the retreat. We held our position until the night of the 4th, when we withdrew and marched all night in the rain, and over the worst roads I have yet seen. On the 5th, we crossed South Mountain and continued our march toward Hagerstown, where we arrived on the morning of the 7th. Here we remained until the 10th, when we again moved on, and on the 11th formed line of battle on Salisbury Ridge, along Antietam creek, between Frankstown and Williamsport. Here we awaited the enemy's assault until the morning of the 14th, when we withdrew, and recrossed the Potomac early next morning. After crossing, we rested here until the morning of the 16th, when we moved to this point, where we have been in camp ever since. Where we will go next, I can't venture to predict. Rumors are rife of another crossing into Maryland, but I hardly think it probable. We are all looking anxiously for your return, and hope that your health ma
