could distinctly hear them complaining and groaning as they went off.19
But they left one wounded man on the ground who hallooed and
begged them to come back after him. I suppose he was the one I heard
crying after I got down. The Texians came out after the Enemy were
gone, and found this wounded man and two dead ones-They carried
the wounded man in the house-built up a fire for him, gave him some
water-took the arms of the three men, and then brought their own
wounded man down to the river-When I sent for them as I have al-
ready told you. The next morning they went over and decently buried
them. I didnt get back to camp that night until near three O Clock-
and that is the reason I was so sleepy last night. Dont you think it was
quite an adventerous night? My Darling I have had to write you a
pretty long letter to give you the history of the affair-and now as I
have nothing more of interest to write-I will beg you to remember me
to all my friends and accept for your own dear Self and each one of the
Darling Children, the entire love of a Husband and a Father.
