The above includes all the missing up to this date, June 3. Many missing on the day
have come in. Those reported wounded and left on the field were for the most
part carried to the field hospital
which afterwards fell into the hands of the enemy. We
had no ambulances and no means of bringing them off.
There can be no doubt some
of those left on the field are dead. It is possible some of the missing may come in—
of them are doubtless wounded—the most of them prisoners.
