, three commissioned officers, three sergeants, two corporals, one musician, and eighty-four privates; and present on extra or daily duty, nine privates; total present, commissioned, 3; total enlisted, ninety-nine; aggregate present, 102.

He has preserved duplicate copies of the muster and pay roll of the regiment which he values as among his greates treasures; and the writer has been privileged to inspect the same for the pupose of this verification. This muster and pay roll state that there were present for duty, three commissioned officers, three sergeants, two corporals, one musician, and eighty-four privates; and present on extra or
