Headq'rs 14th Reg't Ga. Vols., Camp near the Picket Lines. June 11th, 1862.
Editors Richmond Dispatch:

Below I send you an accurate statement of the casualties in the 14th Georgia Regiment, in the battle of the 31st of May. The 14th formed a portion of the brigade of acting Brigadier-General Colonel Wade Hampton; the other regiments being the ‘"Hampton Legion"’--19th Georgia and 16th North Carolina. The brigade arrived on the field about 6 o'clock P. M., after a double-quick of three miles, and immediately formed in line of battle, and charged a masked battery situated in the woods on the left of the line, and to the left of the road. A large majority of the casualties of the 14th Georgia regiment was occasioned by the enemy's first fire, which was delivered when the regiment had arrived with in 30 yards of the hostile battery. I see by this morning's Dispatch that Lieutenants W. C. Clegg and W. M. Presion, reported as missing in the statement, were taken prisoners on the field, and are now in the hands of the enemy. They were both known to have been wounded during the fight.
