I have received your favr of the 28th ulto on the Subject of the Exchange of Lt Govr Gadsden. I am at a loss to know what means will be fallen upon to procure the release of the Gentlemen in the Civil line who were made prisoners in South Carolina, as we have few or none of similar Ranks or circumstances in our hands, and our military Officers in captivity considerably exceeded those of the...

I have been successively honored with your letters of the 25th 28th and 31st of the past month.

Having effected our purpose, we shall tomorrow take a new position about two...
