artillery horse, and said all were safe but Marshall
who he told his Mother was badly wounded, but that
they must send to him at once, but he whispered

and saddened to hear of both, Mr Barton went
out to the battlefield at once, and we went in to
arrange out having breakfast for as many as
possible. Our infantry followed only 3 or 4 miles,
(being already exhausted by constant marching
for 3 weeks, and having had no food for 24 hours)
but the cavalry pursued until they had chased the
enemy across the river beyond Martinsburg, and
burned the bridge. It is said that only 1500 of
Banks' whole army, passed through Martinsburg,
the remainder scattered and rushed pell mell
through the country. Already (Tuesday evening) 2000 have
been brought in besides more than 1000 who have been
brought here from Front Royal, and the stores taken

worth a million of dollars. But to return to Sunday,

him to stay to nurse the Col. Next Berkeley Minor,
