We have moved our quarters and are now In the Camp which you see written above. I am In good Health and good spirits although Some of our fellows are Sick. One of Capt Rose?s men from Clearfield County Died Yesterday after a short Sickness. He died about 9 O clock in the morning and was Burried In the affternoon. His name was Hogan he was a middle aged man. I do not know exactly what ailed him. Some say he was poisoned in Washington and others that He died of Billious fever. He was a man that Drunk pretty hard they he looked Awful after he died. I did not go to see him though he died only a few feet from where I slept. I could hear him groaning all night.
