honor to submit to you the following report, to wit:
The number of killed, wounded, and missing from my regiment on

wounded, but will recover.)
Captain Withers' company: 2 killed.
Captain Perkins' company: 4 wounded, 4 missing.

In closing this report, the most pleasing part of it now remains to be
given you: that the officers and men acted well their part in the hard
battle of yesterday, for a while supporting the Missouri Infantry amid

discrimination. They drove the enemy in retreat from the battery, and
it became easy for the infantry to march on it (Colonel McRae's infantry).
The Texas regiment flanked to the left on the charge. I had been or-
dered to flank with it, which we did in short range for our arms, which
were discharged into the enemy. I am sure that our conduct will meet
the- approval of our country.* *
I have the honor to be, your obedient servant,

Colonel First Cavalry Regiment, Arkansas Volunteers.
