Randolph to go forward with his company; and that the men under his command did not fall back until the line was entirely broken. Capt. Thom adds, that Lieut. Randolph behaved in a most gallant manner, as did also Lieut. Howard. ******** I cannot close this report without making honorable mention of active and efficient services rendered during the day by Lieut. White, acting Adjutant of the battalion."
