We captured eight men and horses belonging to the Fourth, and entered Ashland withouonging to the Fourth, and entered Ashland without any resistance, the enemy having left for Richmond the night before.

The ten days scout was a very hard one, during which time we had killed and maimed thirty-four horses. We did not lose any men. Yours, most respectfully, Richard H.
