The Fourth Regiment, which had also served in the three months campaign in 1861, was recruited to the full standard at Camp Joe Hooker for the nine months service. On the seventeenth day of December, it was ordered to join General Banks's command at New Orleans. It left the State on that day for New York, under the command of Colonel Henry Walker.

Dr. Putnam, of Roxbury, of transcendent eloquence and beauty. After the services in the church, a procession moved to the large pavilion erected on the lawn in the rear of Harvard Hall, where an elegant and substantial
