Was supported by the 1st Div & 13th Army Corps. At the same time the Rebs were making an attack on our 2nd Div at this point, but were handsomely repulsed, & on the night of the 9th the 2nd Div attacked their works capturing everything they had. We have captured in all over 70 pieces of Artillery & some 3000 prisoners - the exact number is not yet known, there being some dispute as to whom the honor belongs. Our losses have been very slight since the 25th of March, the beginning of the active campaign.We have lost only 31 killed & 338 wounded. The enemy's loss is much greater.
They suffered severely at the time of the assaults. The prisoners are well clothed & hearty looking, and rather jolly under the circumstances, but hardly know what to say in the face of our successes... Con has been on the operating staff at 2. The wounded having all been sent to New Orleans...
We have news tonight that Mobile is being evacuated... We have glorious official news from Grant & Sherman, I suppose you will know all about it before this reaches you - I think the CSA are about to collapse - except perhaps the trans-Mississippi Dept.There is some new news along our lines for the men are cheering like devils Folds, else VG to Fine.
