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.
