. His face has three expressions: deep thought; extreme determination; and great simplicity and calmness.] Headquarters Army of Potomac March 30, 1864 I am pretty well, I thank you, and not so blue as when I came back the other time, perhaps because the generals are here and it is not so utterly triste. However, I am fain to say I draw invidious comparisons between it and home, mais that helps nothing. There have been marvellous changes within these three weeks. Generals Sykes, Newton, French, and Pleasonton are ordered off. I do feel sorry for Sykes, an excellent soldier, always sure to do his duty, and with this army for a long time. I fear they displaced him at Washington because they disliked his rough manners. General Pleasonton was always very civil to me and I am sorry therefore to see him go. I have not yet got it clearly in my head how the corps have been shifted about, but I suppose I shall in a few days . . . . The latest joke is the heavy sell that has been pract

June 25, 1864 I can only say that I have sweltered to-day — that is the word; not only hastive. I mean he had his tents pitched and had iced water, two important elements. He speaks no French--De Chanal no English--so they smiled sweetly at each other. Old D. C. ought to be ashamed of hy building bowers against the sun, and telling stories to wile away the time. To these last our French Colonel contributes many, of the Midi, which, with the peculiar accent, are very laughable. To an anecdote of this region. Did I ever tell you of Shaw, the valet of Hancock (formerly of General French)? This genius is a regular specimen of the ne'er-do-weel, roving, jack-of-all-trades Englishhe effect would be limited to a very small radius. No effect! cried B., suddenly bursting into French, mais pourquoi non? Ah, said De C., with his sharp French eye, mais pourquoi si? . . . July 24

with a lively description of some curious visitors to Headquarters.] I had got safely to the Peeble house and was watching the columns as they marched in. I was still watching when suddenly there appeared a new comico-military procession: to wit, a venerable Brigadier, of a diluted visage, followed by two or three officers, and by two beings calculated to astonish the uninitiated. The first was simply gorgeous, not of dubious character, but evidently an officer of one of those theatrical French indigene regiments. He was tightly done up in a black jacket, all over which five hundred yards of fine black braid had gone into spasmodic convulsions; then black trousers with a wide scarlet stripe, morocco knee-boots, and a light blue kepi. To complete his costume, a row of medals stretched from his central buttonhole to the point of his shoulder! The second stranger was utterly incomprehensible. He had on a pair of red, military trousers, a red fez with a blue tassel, and a black dre
