with further details on Olustee

Hilton Head, S.C., February 26, 1864

Maj. Gen. H.W. Halleck,

General-in-Chief, U.S. Army, Washington, D.C.:

GENERAL: I have news from Jacksonville up to the evening of the 24th. The enemy at that time was at Baldwin. General Seymour has been re-enforced and can take care of himself. From the Olustee fight the number of killed, severely wounded, and missing will reach as high as 700. There are several hundred slightly wounded. I have had no official returns yet, but will forward them when obtained.

Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
Major-General, Commanding.
