Larry,

That’s a pretty sober account, isn’t it ?

No silly polemic here : a rather cautiously worded rendition carrying the implication that things might not have gone so well.

Regards, Phil

Maybe getting the home front folks ready for news that isn't so flattering to Southern arms? Newspapers in North Carolina were much more balanced in their reporting than Richmond VA counter parts.
