Jackson: Throughout the broad extent of the country through wich you have marched, by your respect for the rights and property of others, you have always shown that you are soldiers not ony to defend, but able and willing both to defend and protect. You've already won a brilliant reputation throughout the army of the whole Confederacy; and I trust in the future by your deeds in the field, and by the assistance of the same kind Providence who has hitherto favored our cause, you will win more victories and add lustre to the reputation you now enjoy. You have already gained a proud position in the future history of this our Second War of Independence. I shall look with anxiety toward your future movements, and I trust whenever I shall hear of the First Brigade on the field of battle, it will be of still nobler deeds achieved, and higher reputation won!
