hment of these companies until March 1st, arriving at Brazos Santiago on the 17th, to learn, for the first time, the news of General Taylor's victory at Buena Vista. We proceeded up the Rio Grande at once and the whole regiment was assembled at Camargo, under the command of the Colonel, the day after my arrival there. About the first of April the regiment moved from Camargo for Monterey, by the way of a little town called China, as an escort for a provision train. Onehalf of the regiment Camargo for Monterey, by the way of a little town called China, as an escort for a provision train. Onehalf of the regiment was left temporarily at China under Lieutenant Colonel Randolph, and the other half moved to Monterey under my command-Colonel Hamtramck having become too sick to remain on duty. We were encamped at the Walnut Spring near General Taylor's headquarters, and there I met, for the first time, Colonel Jefferson Davis, of the First Mississippi Regiment, who has become illustrious as the President of the Confederrate States.
