1861, and the regiment left the State April 18, one company from the 7th Infantry, M. V. M., and one from the 1st Battalion Infantry being added to its numbers. In command of Col. Timothy Munroe it proceeded to Washington by way of Annapolis, four days being spent at the latter place, and here Co. K was detached for duty at Fort McHenry, Md., and a detach. ment of the regiment also engaged in conveying the frigate Constitution to New York. The remainder of the regiment reached Washington April 26 and was mustered into the United States service April 30; it was ordered into camp at the Relay House May 11. While here Colonel Munroe resigned on account of illness and was succeeded by Edward W. Hincks. On July 3 it moved to Baltimore, remaining there until the termination of its service, July 29. In response to the call for nine months troops, which was made in the autumn of 1882, the regiment again went into service, and November 25 it left the State for North Carolina, encamping at

re added and on June 13 it was mustered into the service of the United States. On June 29 it left the State for Washington and arriving, encamped near the city. It took part in the battle of Bull Run July 21, and as part of Hooker's Brigade moved, August 9, to Bladensburg, Md., going into winter quarters at Budd's Ferry October 27. April 5, 1862, the regiment, now a part of Grover's Brigade, Hooker's Division, embarked for the peninsula, and took part at the siege of Yorktown, engaging on April 26 in the assault and capture of a Confederate lunette. At the battle of Williamsburg, May 5, it was engaged early in the day and again in the afternoon.

During the encampment at Harrison's Landing the regiment engaged in the action at Malvern Hill, August 5. It was in action at Catlett's Station, August 27, and was closely engaged in the afternoon of

and courage which is only the result of a strong character and a deep conviction of right and duty. In his robust health, too, and in the powers of endurance which had earned him in the Forty-fifth the sobriquet of the tough sergeant, he reaped the reward of a pure and temperate life. For about one week in the middle of February he was at home, happy and well. It was the last time he was to see that home so dearly loved. Spring came upon the regiment in its winter quarters. April 26. This morning, as I was returning from battalion drill, my eyes were delighted with the sight of some beautiful little houstonias, also violets and saxifrages. Of course I gathered what I could of them as we passed along, and have been enjoying them in my hut ever since,—they call up to mind so many reminiscences of my beloved home . . . . . My love cannot be taken from you at any rate; and I shall ever be with you in spirit, living on earth or not. I am in the best of health and spir

ng with a cold. His letters to his mother are now devoted by almost alternate sentences to his health and the war. A very little study affects my head. Boston is splendidly excited. What a horrible war,—fathers against sons, brothers against brothers! Yet the grass in the College yard is green and the buds are coming out. April 20. We have ninety signatures to a petition to the Faculty for a drill-club in our Class. If the Faculty refuse, we shall appeal to the Governor! April 26. Thank you for the Union badge and the violets. All the students may belong to the club by getting permission of their parents and signing an agreement to obey all the rules. My cough hangs on as coughs will. April 28. Last evening Governor Andrew sent a message to President Felton, that, having no company ready to guard the Arsenal here, he wished the students to take charge of it. The boating fever has abated; everything is fight now. Yesterday was the anniversary of the da

presence of Sir Humphry Davy, that he became eloquent . . . . The conversation turned much on South America, of which everybody has been talking in Paris since the publication of the Abbe de Pradt's book, in which he expresses the most sanguine expectation of its speedy emancipation. In these expectations and hopes all the republicans in Paris, with Mad. de Stael at their head, heartily join; but the Baron de Humboldt, though his wishes are the same, is by no means of the same opinion. April 26.—The two most interesting acquaintances I have in Paris, thus far, are Schlegel and Humboldt; and the manner of living adopted by both of them is original. Schlegel's is such, indeed, as partly to account for his success as a man of letters, and as a member of the gay society of Paris. He wakes at four o'clock in the morning, and, instead of getting up, has his candle brought to him and reads five or six hours, then sleeps two or three more, and then gets up and works till dinner at six.

met at Mr. Wilberforce's were pleasant people; and Sismondi, whom I carried there one evening, was as much delighted as I was, so that I do not think I was deceived by my prejudices or carried away by the mere quiet of a house, which seemed to me a kind of refuge from the wearisome gayety of the town. . . . . . I always came away with regret, because I felt that I had been in the midst of influences which ought to have made me better. I felt no such regret, however, when at last, on the 26th April, I left London. As I bade Mr. Williams farewell, Mr. Samuel Williams, a banker in London, and a member of a well-known Boston family. whose kindness had followed me all over Europe, and turned from his door, I was assured that my face was now finally set to go home. . . . . My journey to Liverpool was as rapid as I could make it,. . . . and I arrived there on the morning of the 28th. . . . . I desired to see nobody but Mr. Roscoe, and with him I had the pleasure of passing an evening,

rning rather shortly, but very gayly upon him, she said, Mais vous parlez l'allemand si parfaitement, Mons. le Comte, qu'il parait que vous avez beaucoup de pratique. The Count laughed as heartily and as good-naturedly as anybody, but, as he said to me, I n'y a pas de reponse à cela, j'irai jouer.; and he went off to the whist-table, not more disconcerted, perhaps, than a well-bred gentleman may be permitted to be when a handsome, fashionable, and spirituelle lady gives him a hard hit. April 26.—The spring is so much advanced now, and is become so very beautiful, that we have indulged more than ever in driving through the neighborhood of Dresden, chiefly about the Grosse Garten and up the picturesque little valley of Plauen, but also upon the Elbe by Findlater's, and once out to Moreau's monument. . . . . The time and circumstances of Moreau's death will be judged of differently, of course, according to the different points of view from which they may be considered; but I cannot h

a noise here, as it does in London, but finds less favor. Brougham was much discussed; and it was plain he has great authority in the Edinburgh Review because he writes so much and so well for it, and not because they have a great respect for him or his opinions. Napier avowed openly, that he tried very hard to get him to strike out the passage in a recent number abusing Lord Melbourne, but could not succeed, and did not seem to be aware that he ought then to have refused the article. April 26.—We had a visit early from Lord Fullerton, who offered again to go with us about the town; but I know it so well from my former long visit, that I did not think it quite right to bore him to such an extent; and so, taking a few directions from him, we sallied forth again . . . . We dined at Lord Fullerton's, where we met Thomson and his wife, Graham, Sir William and Lady Hamilton, Wilson, and two or three others. Lord Fullerton's wife is a beautiful woman, and so is his eldest daughter;
