on picket, extending to Ely's Ford. The balance of the brigade was
extended on the right (east) of the Germanna plank road and in-
trenched the position. Demonstrations of the enemy against the
cavalry in the afternoon compelled the extension of the line a mile
to the east, which I was desired to make by General Sedgwick (Gen-
eral Neill being reported sick).
