We are all quiet in camp, and patiently waiting orders from Headquarters to move in whatever directed the wisdom of our superiors — in whom we have the utmost confidence — shall command. The sick who have had measles, are recovering and returning to camp daily. There is no news of public interest which is reliable. Lieut. Col Legg was not ‘"wounded,"’ but mounted. Dan
