Where is that musketry firing? Is it in your front, Wright's or Burnside's?

A. A. HUMPHREYS,

Major-General and Chief of Staff.

MAY 14, 1864.

Major-General HUMPHREYS:

The musketry firing has been along the Ny River, in front of General Wright; not much of it. I am moving Ayers, with 1,000 men, out to take this force of the enemy on their left flank.

I think the enemy has left the house. My infantry will move on when your batteries stop. Move your infantry, too.
