loud calls, added to the sound of my cavalry boots and spurs, as I stalked heavily along the halls in search of his room, to bring him at last to the door of his apartment, where, as his red face beamed above his long flannel night-shirt, he was a spectacle to behold.

But the feeling among the troops themselves, as indicating their opinion of the part taken by the Second Massachusetts Regiment, is of more worth in my eyes than any praise bestowed upon us by others. The thirty-first of May found
