A good deal of fighting was done near the bay on our right and it is claimed a good many rebels were killed while one man was killed and several of our men were wounded. As I am kept very busy at work all the time, it is hard to keep track of what other regiments are doing. But, everything is very quiet and we hear on good authority that the insurgents are running short on ammunition but keep their powder mill going day and night. In the city everything is quiet. Some more prisoners were taken by the several regiments and Company C killed several sharpshooters in the morning.
