RUSSELLVILLE, October 28, 1864.
(Via Carter's Station 29th.)
I regret to say that my command was stampeded at Morristown this morning. I lost four pieces of artillery. My command is now formed at this place in order. The enemy is in check. The enemy has a superior force to mine, and I suggest that you send re-enforcements to the upper part of East Tennessee for fear I am driven back. Colonel Palmer has now formed a junction with me. I lost a good many men in prisoners.
Very respectfully, your obedient servant,
J. C. VAUGHN,
