The report continues,— I had been two days on horseback, through a continued storm of rain and snow, with mud up to the stirrups part of the way; and yet I never had a more delightful journey. Two more days were passed in Washington, transacting business at the War Office. On the third day, accompanied by Colonel Coffin, of Newburyport, went on board a steamer, and were taken to Budd's Ferry, about fifty miles down the Potomac, on the Maryland side. Here were the First and the Eleventh Regiments, which formed part of General Hooker's brigade. We quote again:— On the opposite side from the landing, one of the rebel batteries was distinctly visible. The roads from the landing to the camps of our regiments were the worst I ever saw. At one place, a wagon of the Second New-Hampshire Regiment was st
d orders to report at Washington, and left Massachusetts under command of Colonel Albert S. Follansbee about Sept. 1. It remained in Washington until the 13th, when it was ordered to Suffolk, Va. The Eighth Regiment served with distinction in the three months service. It opened the route by Annapolis to Washington. It was recruited to the maximum for the nine months service at Camp Lander, at Wenham. It sailed from Boston on the seventh day of November, under the command of Colonel Frederick J. Coffin, for Newbern, N. C., with orders to report for duty to Major-General Foster. The Forty-second Regiment was recruited for nine months service at Camp Meigs, at Readville. The nucleus of this regiment was the Second Regiment, Massachusetts Volunteer Militia. It was assigned to the Department of the Gulf, and left Massachusetts Nov. 19, with orders to report to General Banks in New York. It remained in camp at Long Island until about the first day of December, when it sailed fr
om New Orleans to Cairo, at the mouth of the Ohio; thus keeping up the advance record of Massachusetts troops.
