left General Lee quite late on the night of the first. And he further says: When I left General Lee on the night of the first, I believe that he had made up his mind to attack, but was confident that he had not yet determined as to when the attack on General Lee's return from Ewell's line, must have caused the sending of Colonel Marshall to Ewell on the night of the first, after the conference I have spoken of. Longstreet says: On the morning of the 2nd I went to General Lee's headqley on its advance into Pennsylvania, and two of its divisions, as well as two of Hill's, had been heavily engaged on the first. Can it be that General Longstreet apprehended that if the advantage gained on the first day was promptly and vigorou well as the very full statement contained in my Review, show that two of my brigades were placed, on the afternoon of the 1st, before General Lee came to our part of the line, on the York road, to guard against a flank movement apprehended in that

Early has, in positive terms, enurpose to attack at dawn on the morning of the 2nd, and that he had left us for the purpose of ordorder was given him to attack at sunrise on the 2nd. As before stated, I do not know what orders wer for an attack on the enemy at sunrise on the 2nd, nor can I believe any such order was issued byk as early as practicable on the morning of the 2nd, before Meade's army should all be up? Swinton former reached the field on the morning of the 2nd, and the latter at 2 P. M. To show that a gnemy at a very early hour on the morning of the 2nd, which every consideration so imperatively demat all, but Gordon's brigade was sent for on the 2nd, Stuart's cavalry having arrived, and got back of the delay in the attack from our right on the 2d, the article proceeds: He (Colonel Taylor) Longstreet complains of Ewell's inaction on the 2d.

the 2nd to be made at the very earliest hour practicable. The testimony General Longstreet has adduced is very far from establishing the fact that General Lee did not direct the attack to be made by him at a much earlier hour than that at which it was made. Before referring to that testimony, I desire to say that the statement contained in the article in the Times, that the information of the crossing of the Potomac by the Federal army was received from a scout on the night of the 29th of June is erroneous. Gen. Longstreet's own report, as well as General Lee's detailed one, show that the information was received on the night of the 28th. If it had not been received until the night of the 29th, it would have been impossible for the order to return to reach me at York by the way of Carlisle in time for me to begin my march back early enough on the 30th to reach Gettysburg in time for the fight on the 1st of July. The fact was that I received the order on the morning of the 29
