Maj. Genl Hancock
Cmg 2d Corps


I have received your note of the 17th, declining to withdraw your telegram of the 9th instant, and giving your version of the circumstances on which you have based your actions.

It is unsatisfactory and I have laid the matter before the General commanding, characterising both that telegram, and the charge you make in the previous one of the same date as justice to myself requires.

I have the honor &c

Henry J. Hunt
Br Genl & Chief A.
