.Sir : Two days ago I road General
Jiraxton Bragg's official report of the
battles of Stone's river, beforo JHur
freesboro, and after proper time for
reflection, 1 thiuk it ruy duly to send
you this communication.
r cannot conceal from myself tha
fact that so much of the report as re
fera to my conduct and that ot ray
command (except some general com
pliments to the courage of a portion
of my troops on Wednesday Hist of
TOi in in trine and STiirit, ft thorOUch

a broad fjundation underneath the

Stive of events is made to nustam the
Vhib the. report of the Comd'g Cen'l
fails, as 1 think, to do justice to the
behavior of my Division on Friday
tho 2d of Jan'yyet its strictures are
chietly levelled at my own conduct as
nn officer during all tho operations. In
direct htatoiaunt and by unmistakable
i mien do it h throughout a reflection
upon my capacity and conduct.
Without referring to its contents in
detail, I have to say, in respectful
terms, that neither its material state
ments, nor its material inuendocs can
lo maintained by proof- that its omis
sion of important facts creditable to
my Division and myself is as remark
able as many of its affirmative state
ments iu n word, that in spirit and
subritaneo it is erroneous and unjust.
I trust that nothing in tho foregoing
expressions passes tho limit of miljtary
propriety, and that plainness of state
ment will be pardoned to one who even
under the weight of superior military
censure, feels that both lie and bis com-
j mand have deserved well of their coun-
try. JIavitig met the Coind'g Gen'l
