painful from acute illness,it is possible that I exhibited more feeling than was necessary, certainly more than I intended to be personal to you. The reference to your individual attitude toward me, which I have no reason to believe was intentionally disrespectful, was incidentally made, and not intended as an official complaint. I regret exceedingly that it did occur, and so expressed myself to General Crittenden the next morning. From the conversation which I subsequently heard at General Rosecrans' headquarters the same evening. I was left undecided as to the true cause of delay, therefore have not referred to the matter since in any way that would be unpleasant to you as an officer or a gentleman.

I am, obliged to you for this opportunity of disabusing your mind of any false impressions and assuring you that my intentions were not unfriendly or disrespectful.

I have the honor to remain, yours, very truly,

JAS. S. NEGLEY,

Major-General.
