In camp at Jacksonville, Aug. 30—-I
im on police duty today and am likely
to be called on at. any moment. Our
camp was moved further out two weeks
ago., We had an awful time moving, as
we had to do it in a pouring down rain.
Everything got soaking wet and we
Ive not gotten entirely straight yet.
r bath houses have not been fixed
i. Our fare was very bad the first
i or six days after we moved, but it
getting better now. The camp is
ited about two and a half miles from
ksonville, which makes it very in- ]
ivenient for the boys when they |
at to go to town, as there is no way
getting there except to foot it. I j
'c been in only once since we mov- ]
Hit. Our whole brigade is here and ]
>ok us three days to move, moving ,
tgiment at a time, each regiment j
ig tne others teams. I tell you what ~
rything was stir and bustle. It
was quite a sight to see so many teams
moving at the same time. Uncle Sam
certainly has a good supply of them,
and they are of the best quality too. 1
Each company has, or is entitled to .
have, two teams, one four and one six
horse. We have some of the finest 1
mule teams here I ever saw. The boys,
I think, are very well pleased with our I
new camp, and would be entirely so if l
it was nearer the city. The ail
out here is much fresher aud purer a
Ii it was at our old camp and j
ire strictly in the country now. c
have a good deal of shade, that r
mething we did not have at our old
p. and did have nice long grass to i
ge on until the boys trampled it ,
own. Now we have white sand to j
in again. Our regiment received (
celast week that we would be sent
to Cuba in six weeks, A good many of f
the boys do not want to go, and have ]
K'ved their discharge. Nine from t
ompanv have gotten their dis {
;e, and I think there will be more, i
Ryans death was a sad one. He r
ick for such a short time —in the j
hospital only nine boys. We had no t
idea when he left us, that it would be t
more than three or four days before he
returned. Did not consider him a sick I
man at all. He was one of the strong I
est and most healthy men in tbe com
pany. His death was very sudden aud I
Ipected. He was very popular and I
the boys liked him. He was in my
md bunked next to me and its I
to realize that the poor fellow is
as called off ou police duty yester
day and did not get a chance to write
any more during the day. After dinner j
we had division review, consisting of c
nine regiments. Our brigade had to \
march away down town to join the
other brigades. I tell you what it was 1
an awful long hot walk. When we got
back I was wringing wet with perspira
tion. We had the same hot walk last 1
Saturday evening, but did not have the |
review on account of rain. 5 here is to
be grand parade this evening of all the I
Scamp here in honor of the decla |
of peace. There will be between ?
and 35,000 uku j n ] iuei
Excursions will be run here *
from all parts of the state £
I will not take part in this grand pa I
rade though, as I am on guard duty to- *
day, and will have to report at the q
guard house in a few minutes. I be- c
lieve I had rather do this than be in J
that tiresome parade. A good many of j
our boys have gotten their discharge s
from the company. Our regiment goes ■
to Cuba about the Ist of October.
