I have read with pleasure your report of the attack upon the enemy cavalry at Hanging Rock and the subsequent surprise of the two companies of the enemy’s infantry stationed at the mouth of the Little Capon & at Pawpaw Tunnel.

The results accomplished, and the judicious arrangements, which enabled you to effect them, without loss of life on your part, are deserving of high commendation; the appreciation of which it gives me pleasure to express, with the request that you will make it known to the officers & men of your command.

I am with high respect Your Obt Servt
