I thought he changed his attitude when he saw Forrest charge into the melee than what he saw in his suffering. But we can never really know---unless he wrote about it later.
He did write about it...... "Forrest and His Campaigns" by James R. Chalmers. A not so long paper published by the Southern Historical Society.
He got off to a bad start with NBF but his writing leaves it out. He does admit to being a Bragg fan-boy. He genuinely likes Forrest in this treatment and they were allies and friends after the war. Anyway you can read it here.
