nced the Governor in his efforts to have them removed to Texas. The reports received from the three years regiments on duty there presented a fearful list of deaths, and of men sick in hospitals of malaria fever. So great, indeed, was the fatality from this cause, that the Governor wrote to the Secretary of War in March, asking that the regiments of Massachusetts troops which had passed the preceding summer in the Department of the Gulf might be replaced by others, and that they be brought North, as two successive summers there might be very fatal to their unacclimated constitutions. He asked this, not as a favor to himself or State, but as a measure of humanity and common prudence. Accompanying these letters was a report which had been received by the Surgeon-General of the Commonwealth, from Captain Welles, of the Thirtieth Regiment, which contained a very full and interesting account of the sanitary condition of that regiment, and expressed fairly the condition of the others.
mong whom was a detachment of forty-six men of this regiment, who maintained an effective resistance for nearly two hours to a rebel force of over three hundred mounted men. First-Sergeant Ballou, commanding, was severely wounded; one man killed, three wounded. June 21.—The regiment moved to the city of New Orleans, where it took post at the Custom House. From the 14th to the 29th of July, it was on picket duty on the line of the Opelousas Railroad. July 31.—The regiment was ordered North, and arrived at New York Aug. 8, proceeding to Boston, and was mustered out of service at Readville, Aug. 20, 1863. The Forty-third Regiment was in the Department of North Carolina. It left the State Oct. 24, 1862, and reached Newbern about Nov. 1. On arriving, it was ordered to camp on the banks of the Trent River, Nov. 30; two companies were detached and ordered to Beaufort, N. C., under command of Captain Fowle, where they remained till March 4, 1863. The regiment joined the exp
copies of correspondence concerning an application of Colonel Joselyn, of our Fifteenth Regiment, precisely similar to that in the case in which you are interested. You will see that it is about hopeless to induce the Secretary of War to let any rebel go from the North to the South, to arrange an exchange for himself. But General Hitchcock seems to think there would be no objection to the reverse of the arrangement, and is willing to arrange, with any of our men whom the rebels will send North, for the return of rebels, and exchange for them. I will stir up the case again, nevertheless. In April, two enlisted men were tried by court-martial for military offences, and sentenced to be shot. On the 21st of April, the Governor wrote to Major Cabot, commanding Fort Warren, where the condemned men were confined,— Are there any mitigating circumstances in the cases of either of the two soldiers under sentence of death, which would justify my asking the President or General Di
ed about a mile from City Point, near the hospitals, and that it had been attached to the engineer corps. I regretted that I had not known it before, as I would have preferred quarters with Co1onel Wolcott to those at the hotel. The regiment is in splendid condition. Mr. Fay invited me to visit the hospitals on my return. Here I also met Dr. Graves, of the Marine Hospital at Chelsea. He had just returned from a visit to General Butler. On reaching Bermuda Hundred, I reported to Lieutenant North, assistant provost-marshal; and, he being one of our Massachusetts boys, I received every courtesy in his power to render. He ordered an ambulance to take me to the headquarters of General Butler, which was about six miles distant, in a grove of oaks. The ride was of much interest, as we passed several camps and hospitals; the road lay through cornfields most of the way. At Wilson's Landing, we crossed a bend on the James, on a pontoon bridge. On reaching headquarters, I was cordiall
