ing thus formed, I was ordered, at 4 o'clock P. M., to fall back from the east of Cassville, and form my two remaining brigades in rear of Cockrell's brigade and Canty's division; but, inasmuch as General Hood's corps did not join or extend to Canty's right, I placed in this interval a half of Ector's brigade, holding the other half and Sear's brigade in reserve. Thus my division was separated by Canty's division, and Canty's troops formed a part of my command. Winter Park, Fla., Dec. 12, 1893. Editor Picayune. A few days ago a friend sent to me a copy of the Weekly Picayune of Oct. 26 last, containing an article headed Reminiscences of the War, that contains a number of errors, which I desire to correct so far as they relate to me, and I will refer to them in the order they are related in the paper.

This left Sear's brigade and the half of Ector's in reserve, Cockrell being on Canty's left in line. About 5 P. M. our pickets from the extreme front were driven in towards the second line by the enemy's cavalry. Hoskins' battery opened on them and checked t

I quote: First—After Polk's corps had taken the position assigned to it on the left of Hood's corps and in the rear of Cassville, General S. G. French, one of the division generals of the corps, sent a report to General Polk that his position was enfiladed and that he could not hold it. Any line can be enfiladed if the enemy be permitted, undisturbed, to approach near enough and establish batteries on the prolongation of that lin

n attack upon the enemy while the batteries held the positions they then occupied. Having made the reconnoisance he returned to General Polk's headquarters just after dark. General Polk immediately sent for General Johnston. General Hood was at General Polk's. You will thus perceive that the conference to be held was determined on between Polk and Hood, before Morris made his report to Polk, because Hood was already there, for I rode with him to the rendezvous. Seventh—On the 8th of May, 1874, General Hood wrote me a letter to know what I knew about the vexed question of retiring from Cassville. He had forgotten that he had met me in the road; that he had invited me to ride with him to see General Johnston, or that I was at the conference. Said he Only learned I was at the conference from Johnston's narrative, etc. I answered his letter from New York, where I then was, from recollection, without reference to my diary. I have both his letter and my answer. General Hoo

to my line and fortify it. On reaching my division I set every one to work strengthening the line, and getting ready for the impending battle that I felt sure would begin in the morning. While we were thus busily at work, and at about the hour of 11 P. M., an officer riding along my line stopped and told me the work would be useless, and intimated (that is the word written in my diary) that the army would be withdrawn or fall back to-night. Soon after the order came to move back on the Cartersville road. The receipt of the order was a surprise to me, notwithstanding the intimation that had been made to me. Fifth—Towards the conclusion of the article it reads: General Polk had so little confidence in the representations of the weakness of the line at the point referred to that he did not go there in person. But for Hood's invitation General French would not have been called to the conference, and, consequently, when General Hood urged the untenability of his line, and support
