To Julia Dent Grant

Corinth, August 22d 1862

DEAR JULIA,

Since my letter of three or four days ago I have but little news to write about. You have probably seen that Col. Mason of the 71st Ohio, the man who was sent away on account of bad conduct at Shiloh, 1 surrendered Clarkesville without firing a gun, 2 also that the Guerrillas captured two steamers on the Tennessee. 3—About sixty of our troops had a fight with a party of about three times their numbers of Kentucky recruits trying to join the rebels and drove them into the Tennessee killing 37 and taking 14 prisoners besides all their arms and many of their horses. 4

We have had several little figh[ts] since you left resulting favorabl[y] to our troops and one night alarm, [h]ere.
