Report of Brig. Gen. Jeremiah C. Sullivan, U. S. Army.

HARPER’S FERRY,
October 15, 1863.

SIR: This morning a portion of Colonel Pierce’s command met a squad of 37 men, belonging to Gilmor’s battalion, who intended burning Back Creek Bridge. They captured the whole party without the loss of a man. I think I can make the cavalry of this command effective.
