COLONEL: Allow me to call your attention to two yong men of your command of whom you may well be proud, S. G. Barker and A. L. Burnell, of Company C. They were ordered to report as orderlies to General Veatch on the morning of the 5th, a short time before the battle commenced. During the day they were under my control, andmost of the time with me, and I am happy to say their conduct was entirely satisfactory, both in regard to courage and promptness to do duty. I am confident there were many offiacers highly complimentd for courage andaring on that day that were not so sorely exposed or faced the danger with more courage than they. I deem this notice but fair and just tot he parties herein spoken of, as merit should be noticed wherever found, a ndI consider it my duty to mention them to you as they were separated at the time from your immediatenotice.
I have thehonor to be, colonel, veryresepctfuly, your obedient servant,
