I wrote Gen. Halleck,
Washington D. C.
CITY POINT, VA., August 21, 1864-1.30 p. m.
The enemy came out and attacked Warren between 10 and 11 a. m., but were repulsed with great ease. No loss reported on our side except General Cutler, slightly wounded, and Colonel Duchane, killed. General Warren reports 400 prisoners captured that he knows of; there may be more. I am expecting a heavy attack this afternoon, and preparing for it.
