746 THE PENINSULAR CAMPAIGN, VA. [CHAP. XXIII.
the enemy attacked my advanced picket on the Richmond road. They
took advantage of the dense fog, and approached very near before
being discovered. The pickets behaved nobly, and drove the rebels
back in disorder. They left a wounded prisoner on the ground, who
states that their force consisted of 300 men, of the Twenty-third North
Carolina Regiment. We lost 1 officer and 1 private killed, and 2 en-
listed men wounded. The officer killed (Maj. John E. Kelley, of the
Ninety-sixth New York Volunteers, who commanded the pickets) is a
great loss to the service. I knew him well when orderly-sergeant of
the Second Infantry. I have inclosed a list of the killed and wounded.
Capt. George W. Gillespie, of the One hundred and third Pennsylvania
Volunteers, who commanded the pickets after the death of Major Kel-
ley, behaved very well.
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
Brigadier-General, Commanding Division.
