The following letter received by Sergeant Hermit of tile National Uutml of Hawaii, Is from n regular .soldier of 23 years service, now with the Fourteenth infantry in Manila. There is nothing hysterical In it, not withstanding tlie dolorous picture it gives of the situation. It is rather the composed, fatalistic view that would be expected from a man who has been In the army us long as the writer. Yet It is gloomy enough. "At the present, dearest friend, I am in fairly good health, for how long though 1 don't know, as 1 hud my share of sickness already, and It don't take a fellow very long neither to contract a lot more. This place is well blessed with a goodly number of (lis eases, and among others the troops arc suffering from smallpox, measles, typhoid fever, malarial fevers and some others nnd graver ones. To sum it all up. Friend Hermit, I am more than glad that you didn't come along with us, or we would have one more disgusted man among us. The duty Ik easy enough, as we have only one and one-half hours drill a day, but it is this Clod forsaken climate we don't like; it takes the energy out of a man and one feels constantly tired, and you can't even take a hearty drink of water without endangering your self. There are only a few that look and feel well, and Very few that re eiilist here again. My time is out in a month and a few days, and if I don't exactly feel well at that time, I will leave this place, too, although 1 would be out of a good deal in the bargain all around, as I expect to see the 23 year retirement bill pass pretty soon, and 1 am in the army now 23 years. "The only tinuvwe can take a com fortable walk here is after the sun is down, then everything seems to take new life, the Spaniards and their fam ilies come out of their houses for a drive or walk or nn airing; the stores seem to do most of their business and everybody seems to be feeling all right. Kven the animals seem to share the same feeling. Then you can see lizards conic out of their" hiding place and it don't seem to matter much (when you see them In a light ed room) if they run up and down a smooth wall or along a ceiling; it is about all the same to them. In the day time everybody keeps indoors if possible, except the natives or China men. "'Hie mortality among tlie troops is great, as they bury several soldiers ev ery day, tlie hospitals are full, and every transport going back to the states takes along scores of sick sol diers. So you can see yourself what an indescribable place this is. I wn in all the skirmishes that took place here and came out unhurt, lint real battles there were none. How long we are going to stay here nobody, knows. The volunteers, of course, go first; we regulars are quite sure to stay here for another two years. "Sineerelv voiirs, "C. VI MCE. "Company A. Fourteenth Infantry." T1II0 TACO.MA. SAN FRANCISCO, November 23. The work of getting the horse trans port Tacoma ready for another trip to Honolulu is taking considerably longer time than was at first antici pated, and it is said that it will be several weeks vet before she is reiulv" for her second consignment of horses.
