The work and commotion continued in the rebel camp the whole night, and in the morning the bands of rebels again appeared before our pickets as usual, but this time our patrols discovered them early, and compelled them to retire.
All the intrenchments and batteries in front of the camp were completed today, and the artillery was placed in the forts.
General Burgoyne sent some officers round the rebel army’s left wing, accompanied by Indians and other light troops. They had got quite to the rear of the hostile army after going a long way round, but they could not say anything whatever about the enemy’s position with any certainty, however, the Indians brought some chevalures back with them.
The army loses men from the van and the right flank of the Fraser and Bergmann Corps every day, who are either carried off by rebel patrols, or fall into the enemy’s hands when they go down to fetch water or look for food in the nearest habitations. Patrols hardly ever go out without the enemy taking their quota of them.”
