the close of the war :
Soldiers of the 111th Ohio :
Wo are about to separate as sol
diers, and go to our homes as cit
izens. Before we part allow me to
thank you for the generous cour
tesy you have always shown me as
your commanding officer. The
work which we enlisted to perform
has been well done and you go to
your homes with the proud assur
ance of having participated in the
most decisive battles of the war.
For your heroic conduct at Frank
lin, you were complimented in
, "General Orders," and on twenty
, battle fields you have earned the
tattered flag of the 111th Ohio in
jlthe front line, and sustained it
triumphantly. I do not part with
men with whom I have been so in-
timately associated for three long
- years', without feelings of regret.
These soldier friendships, formed
in bivouac and on the battle field,
will never be forgotten; and I
shall ever remember vour un-
"' swerving fidelity with the liveliest
emotions, of pleasure. You go to
3'our homes as American citizens,
knowing what it lias i ost to main
tain our national integrity. Show
byiipright, honorable lives, my fel
low soldiers, that you fully appro

our brave comrades who fell at

From the Republican, Mt. Gilead,
Ohio: The editor had an, interesting
experience some time ago, when a
young gentleman came to this office

carefully when a copy was handed him,

is it you are looking for?" we inquired.

I'll never go home without Chamber
