To the Editor of the Dispatch:
Please publish the annexed roll of Company K. This gallant little company was the first from Charlotte county to volunteer its services in the late war. It was a part of the famous 18th Virginia Infantry, commanded by Colonel R. E. Withers until his disability at Gaines' Mill, and then by Colonel H. A. Carrington until the close of the war. It is proposed to record the roll as soon as the same can be as nearly perfected as possible. Any assistance from the survivors of the company in furtherance of this undertaking will be gladly received. Adress either William H. Smith, late captain of company, or J. C. Carrington, Smithville, Va.
