officers and 213 men, some of the latter being detailed, non-arms- bearing, sent back to be surrendered with their command.
The aggregate in this regiment during the entire war was 1,826. After Colonel Lowe resigned and Lieutenant-Colonel Speer was killed at Reames' Station, the regiment was frequently commanded by Captains E. F. Lovell and T. J. Linebarger.

JENKINS' BRIGADE IN THE GETTYSBURG CAMPAIGN.
Extracts from the Diary of Lieutenant Hermann Schuricht, of the Fourteenth Virginia Cavalry.
IDLEWILD (near) COBHAM, VA., April i, 1896.
To the Editor of the Dispatch:
I see from various articles in the Richmond papers that the man- agement of the cavalry in the Gettysburg campaign is being criticised ; and, having participated in this campaign as an officer in General Jenkins' Cavalry Brigade, and being in possession of a "diary," in the German language, kept by me during those memorable days, I may be able to give some additional evidence assisting to establish the historical truth. To this end I take the liberty of sending you a translation from my "diary," pertaining to the movements of the cavalry from June 15, 1863 (the day we crossed the Potomac into Maryland and Pennsylvania), to July I4th (the day we recrossed the river to the Virginia side).
First Lieutenant of Company >, i^jth Virginia Cavalry.
From Lieutenant Schuricht's Diary.
June 15, 1863. Fatigued, but hopeful, and encouraged by the result of our glorious battle of yesterday, at Martinsburg, Virginia, we were called by the sound of the bugle to mount horses. As early as 2 o'clock in the morning we advanced towards the Potomac. We reconnoitered first to " Dam No. 5," and, returning to the road to Williamsport, Maryland, we rapidly moved to the river.
