to the proper head, it will be seen that the great battle of Richmond has
commenced, and was still undecided at last accounts--if we do not get further
by the latest mail for which we shall keep open. The following is a list
of the killed and wounded of
Jenkins' regiment as far as heard from.
Mr. Hackett is since report dead (DOW 6/7/1862):
Adams, James M., slightly
Allison, James (DOD date unknown)

Giles, Jack, Colonel (KIA 5/31/1862)

It is thus seen that York County has suffered terribly, and all is not told.
The land is full of mourning--God grant the sacrifice on our part may not
have proven in vain.
