HEADQUARTERS SIXTH ARMY CORPS, January 4, 1865.

(Received 4 p. m.)

Brigadier General S. WILLIAMS,

Assistant Adjutant-General:

There will be a little delay in sending up the paper just received from you, but it will be sent back as soon as I can possibly get the information. The report was sent during my absence, and I don't know why the number of companies was not put in. General Wright was somewhat injured this morning by a fall from his horse, out on the picket-line. It seemed serious at first, but I think he is doing well now.

Major and Acting Assistant Adjutant-General.

GENERAL: I am exceedingly sorry to hear of your mishap, and sincerely hope you are not seriously injured. Please let us know how you are getting along.

Truly, yours,

JNO. G. PARKE.

(Received 6.20 p. m.)

Major General JOHN G. PARKE,

Commanding:

General Wright is now sleeping, and I will not awake him to read your kind note. It is impossible to tell now the injury. He has been in great pain, and the doctors say a rib or two may be broken, but think not. The shock may be the worst part. They can tell in the morning. Should any change take place I will notify General Williams.
