arer, M. L. Comann, some very exciting and interesting news from the Sandy country. You are aware that our forces in that section were under the command of Col. John Williams, and that he had evacuated Prestonsburg, and taken a stand some few miles this side. (This information I communicated to you in my last epistle.) On last Ts determined to give the enemy a chance to show their bravery. But before they advanced very far, our men fell back to Pikesville. On arriving at Pikesville, Col. Williams ordered Capt. May, and some other Captain, (Mr. C. falls to recollect his name,) with some 400 men, to return, and give them battle at the place named. This t same day, another little fight took place, some 12 miles from Pikesville, on John's Creek. Here the enemy were endeavoring to make their way into the rear of Col. Williams, in order to cut off his supplies, and the artillery supposed to be on its way to Col. W. Our force here numbered some 200, under command of Capt. H. Harris.
