The Fight at Drewry's Bluff

To the Editors of the Dispatch:

In my report to you a short time since of the fight at Drewry's Bluff, I neglected to mention Mr. J. W. Drewry, who rendered great service on that occasion, and it is never too late to give credit to whom it is due. The manner in which young Drewry acted on that day proved very plainly to every man that he had been a participant in many fights, and was calculated to keep men cool who never had been under fire.
