Confederate cavalry commander J.E.B. (Jeb) Stuart writes to an unspecified general requesting details of a report by another officer regarding Manassas.
Culpeper April 12th 1863
I yesterday rec’d an intimation that Gen’l Trimbles’ report of the capture of Manasses (which he ought to have submitted to me) contains matter which requires my attention, I beg to request that you will have a copy made for me, of such parts as interest me, in order that I may be heard in reference thereto.
There is now news here old Milroy makes one itch to get hold of him (over)
the bearer will wait for the report.
Very truly yours
