Description
He secured such stores as had escaped the enemy around Charlottesville; Col. Davies and Maj. Pryor doubtless secured those at the old Court House; the loss hereabouts has not been great; 100 casks of powder and 300 lbs. of lead were saved; there is great need of the latter article; they are already dismantling their windows; movements of the Marquis [Lafayette]; the enemy have moved down to Goochland Court House; the riflemen are coming in fast; he is about to return to the army.
