Verona, Miss., February 15, 1865
With many regrets I part with the Mississippi brigade of my old division, and take this occasion to express my sincere thanks to General Armstrong for his hearty co-operation and assistance at all times, and to his gallant and gentlemanly officers and true and brave men for patient endurance, good behavior, and noble bearing on every field. With pain to me the long and pleasant official and personal association is severed. My heartfelt wish is success to you all in your new position. I express the hope and desire that you may add new laurels to those you hae so fairly earned on so many fields. Farewell! May success attend you and your chivalric commander.
W. H. JACKSON,
