"James Island near Charleston, June 4, 1862

I give the following short detail of the day before yesterday's skirmish for the information of our friends.

On Sunday, the First and Second Brigades embarked at Beaufort for Charleston leaving the Fiftieth Pennsylvania regiment, Col. Christ to hold the position at Beaufort and on Monday evening, the 2d inst the Seventy ninth New York, Volunteers, and four companies of the One Hundredth Pennsylvania A. Templeton, F, (Cline,) D, (Hamilton,) and I, (Lieut. Blair) disembarked at Stone Fort, abandoned by the enemy, and immediately went in upon the Island, driving the enemy's pickets before them.

On the morning of the 3d, the enemy approached in force and a stubborn contest ensued. The transport having on board the balance of the brigade could not cross the bar to reinforce the troops engaged till about ten o'clock in the morning. At the time of the arrival of the companies E (Bently,) K (Van Gorder) G (Brown) and B (Dawson,) our wounded were being brought in and we at once reinforced the advance and the enemy fell back.

The following is a correct list of the casualties to the four companies of this regiment, the only ones that occurred, except one man mortally wounded of the Seventy ninth New York, on the evening of the 2d.

Conrad Shaffer, Co. F."
