COLONEL: I have the honor to report all quiet on my lines. The cars were running to and from through the night, on the left side of the town. A new rifle-pit is reported on my left, not visible from the left of my line, but perhaps visible to General Warren's troops. Last night the enemy fired five shells from their left redoubt (opposite Warren) which exploded in rear of Hartranft's brigade.

Very respectfully.

O. B. WILLCOX.

Brigadier-General.
