In conclusion, I would, as an excuse for the meagerness of this report, state that it has been made up almost wholly while on active field duty, and most of it while laboring under indisposition. If injustice has been done to any one, it is certainly unintentional and the result of forgetfulness, and will be cheerfully and promptly corrected when called to my attention.

All of which is respectfully submitted.

I have the honor to be, very respectfully, your obedient servant,

J. W. REILLY,

Colonel, Commanding First Brigade.
