nemy north of the James, substantial fruits were expected to be reaped in that quarter,—yet had every appearance of one, and had compelled Lee to detach a considerable force from before Petersburg. Advantage was taken of this fact to make an advance from the left flank, which was now distant but three miles from the Weldon Railroad. By the time Hancock's Foot Cavalry had returned to Petersburg, the Fifth Corps was across that road, holding to it like good fellows. It was Sunday morning, Aug. 21. That day the batterymen will remember as the one on which we returned to our camp to find it a pond of water. As we lay waiting, we listened to the fierce struggle making four miles distant by Heth's and Mahone's divisions of Hill's corps, to dislodge Warren from his position; but they were repulsed at every point, and finally left the Fifth Corps in quiet possession of their prize, which had cost our army four thousand four hundred and fifty-five men—killed, wounded, and captured.

To throw the enemy off the scent, the infantry were embarked on transports at City Point . . . . . The idea was encouraged that the command was about embarking for Washington. On the morning of the 13th I received my instructions, which were nearly identical with those furnished me in July, when operating from Deep Bottom. These were, in brief, a demonstration in force against the enemy's left. Gregg's division of cavalry and Birney's Tenth Corps were placed at Hanc
