[91] the true soldier-author should be inspired in the presence of great events.

It will give pleasure to those who remember Major Scheibert so pleasantly in the Army of Northern Virginia in 1863, to know that he is alive and well, having served unharmed in the campaign against Austria, which ended in the battle of Sadowa. He was badly wounded in the late war against France in the battle of Worth. He remembers warmly his comrades of the Army of Northern Virginia, and holds frequent happy reunions with Von Borcke, the big and big-hearted cavalryman who rode with Stuart, when there is much talk of their old comrades — of those still here as well as of those who have “gone beyond.”
