Lieutenant F. W. TUPPER,

Adjutant:

ADJUTANT: In obedience to orders from colonel commanding I left camp about 11 o'clock with my battalion to go to the relief of a foraging party on the Summerville road. I overtook them sixteen miles out. I found all safe; saw no enemy; heard of none. I found the teams and infantry in charge of Captain Wickstrum, Fifty-seventh Illinois Infantry, badly scattered. I remained there until about sundown, when I succeeded in getting them all together. I started into camp, reaching here about 2 a. M. the 22nd instant. The wheat the foraging party obtained was all spoiled.

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

S. TRAMEL,

Major, First Alabama Cavalry, Commanding.
