Jackson 27th July 64
Col Hood having a few days respite, I have requested him to ride up to Macon & make you a full report regarding the State troops you have been kind enough to confide to my Command. I placed them under Col. Hood & with my old Regt. in order that they might have the benefits of thorough discipline & drill in camp, with the assistance and example of well trained & gallant troops in action. Col. Hood has labored very savantly in their instruction and with the most gratifying results. In the late actions, with the enemy they behaved with great gall-antry.
