brigadier-general commanding throughout the action, and a few flattering words which he spoke to them while the engagement was progressing were sufficient to assure me that he was more than satisfied with the conduct of all them. I feel certain that when the next struggle comes they will not be found wanting.
In conclusion, captain, I beg leave to return my sincere thanks to the brigadier-general commanding for the uniform kindness and courtesy with which myself and my command were treated during the operations of the division. It was owing entirely to his exertions and to those of his staff that my battery was kept so well supplied in everything necessary to its sustenance, and the fact that six hours after it had arrived at its original camp it was ready again for service as a full battery speaks highly for the forethought and attention which he paid my command while it was a participator in the late operations of the Army of the Potomac.
I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
J. W. MARTIN,
First Lieutenant Commanding 6th Indpt. N. Y. Battery Horse Artillery.
