To Edwin M. Stanton

Hon. Secretary of War                Washington, D.C.,
Bedford, Pa.                                   Sept. 6 1863

Burnside has Kingston, & Knoxville, and drove the enemy across the river at Loudon, the enemy destroying the bridge there. Captured some stores & one or two trains. Very little fighting—few wounded and none killed. No other news of consequence.
