Mies Stutte will also visit at Jackson and Detroit be fore returning. It baa been extremely hot ever tince we got board, but the sea has been quite Plm and not altogether unpleasant. Everybody persDires freely, but the boys don't mind it so much as iney am at rmn 4l(rpr. for there i no dust to make everything dirty. Notwithstanding the fact that the liar yard is a boat of immense proportions the enlisted men could not be accommo dated with staterooms and had to sleep on the decks. The officers and non-com missions of both regiments were given staterooms, but it ia more comfortable to sleep on deck than In the little crowd ed rooms below where it Is so swelterng hot. The men went on board the ship Satur day alternoon late, but the ship did not leave belore Sunday afternoon, Lyery thing was confusion the first night and it was hard work to get anything to eat or drink, but the next day the com nanies turned In their rifles and each com pany was giyen quarters on the xlecks. Tbe men are given canned meat and coffee for rations, but fresh water Is what everybody wants and what is very diffi cult to get. Some of the boys have already had their first experience in sea sickness and there has been little or , no sea as yet. Today it has been yery calm, but a good breeze keeps blowing most . of the time. At nisht it gets cooler, but at best tbe heat is very band on the northern Mich! gan boys. Notwithstanding the condition of things generally the boys are all keeping; gay and making the most of things as they find them. Sunday night the band gave a concert on the upper deck which was greatly enjoyed by all. I forgot to mention in my letter after leaving Camp Alger tbat Corporal John Trevarrow did not accompany the boys, he having been detailed to drill recruits when they came in. One corporal from each company was left at camp with a lieutenant in charge. As soon as things were arranged on board as comfortable as could be Colonel Petermannn established bis headquarters and orders tor routine of duty were at once iesua. The only work done beside Board duty is the officers, non-commie sions and company schools and consider able time is thus put in in study. Mail should be sent addressed to Com pany .Thirty-Fourth Michigan Vol unteer Infantry. Santiago de Cuba, to reach us. Gcck. Tbbke Miles from Santiago, July 5, '98 I will try end make these few lines cou tain as much as I can concerning what they get excellent treatment. After that marching was resumed until morning where we struck General Shatt er's headquarters, three miles from the firing line. Then we weregivenan hour's rest and a chance to eat our hardtack and canned meat. At 8 o'clock we re sumed the march to the front. It got exceedingly hot before lonfc, both from the sun and stray bullets that came dangerously near. Once we made a short stop near a hospital and shots flew thick from Spanish sharp-shooters who were in the trees. It must be remembered that all tbe ground we had covered was the territory which had been taken inch by inch by the Americans and quite a few Spaniards had been left in the trees and they improved eyery opportunity to pick' off Americans on the roadside. Once a piece ol shell dropped in front of some of the boys and scattered the dirt but did not hit any one. All the way along we met wounded men and occasion ly passed a dead soldier. W e met one party of soldiers with a big party ol Spaniards who had been taken prisoners. The farther tothe front we got tne warmer the firing got and all the more 9 dangerous. At noon we reacnea a post tion behind a hill about two miles from the city and half a mile from the trenches .Kora nnii niMi were entrenched, lne shooting was hot and Heavy nere ana was kept up all day. We were marched on the side of a hill and expected to be moved to the trenches an7 moment. W e found out afterward that our being equipped with Springfield rifles kept us out of the pits as the smoke tney maae made the shooter an easy target While we were laying on the side of the bill stray bullets kept whiztingovtr us thick and fast and an occasional one wonld dIow ud the dirt at our leet. Finally one shot hit Bert Allen. "Soo," and wounded him badly in the face. The same bullet struck Lieutenant-Colonel Bennetts in the coat button, but glanced off. That afternoon it rained water as well as bullets for an hour or so anaeverj body was soaked to the skin. Beside that the boys got their feet soaking iu fording streams on the march, mat night the boys slept in the open air on the wet ground and themselves wet, but very tired. The boys had to droptneir blanket rolls a few miles back and there- frtr had to sleep with nothing oer them. The firing bad stopped at nightfall, out at 10 o'clock tbe regiment was routed mir hv heavy cannon and rifle firing. The moon was full and the Spaniards charge from the city on nnrpntrenchments.

Some persons are content with a cup of coffee and a piece of toast; oth ers make it the most detc&nined meal of the day. Onoe it was formidable in deed. In. Sir John Hawkins' " History of Musio" is quoted a sixteenth century manuscript belonging to the house of Northumberland which gives the break' fast arrangements of the Percy family both for Lent and for flesh days, and, oh. how some of us have fallen away in trencher work! Here is the simple Northumbrian scheme: "Breakfast for my lord and: lady during Lent: First, a loaf of bread in trenchers, two manchets (a manchet was a small loaf, ol wnito bread), a quart of beer, a quart of wine, two pieces of salt fish, six baconn'a ner ring, four white herring or a dish of sprats. Breakfast for my Lord .Percy and Master Thomas Percy : Item, half a loaf of household bread, a manohet, a bottle of beer, a dish of butter and a piece of salt fish, a dish of 6prats or three white herring. Breakfast lor tne nursery for my Lady Margaret and Mas ter Ingeram Percy: Item, a manchet, a quart of beer (this for the nursery), a dish of butter, a piece of Bait fish, a dish of sprats or three white herring. At ordinary times my lord and lady fared thus: "First, a loaf of bread in trenchers, two manchets, a quart of beer, a quart of wine, half a chine of mutton, or else a chine of beef boiled. Lord Percy and Master Thomas Percy disposed of "half a loaf of household bread, a manchet, one bottle ol Leer, a cheeking, or else three mutton bones boiled," while to the thirsty nursery wrnt "a manchet. one quart ol beer and threo mutton bones boiled.

Their military tactics were simple in the extreme but they wero all the case required. .They relied primarily upon surprises, secondarily upon noises, witn a vague and diminutive tertiary element of reliauco upon weapons. The first sallies failed in this encoun- ter. but even though weapons wero free ly used for a brief period there was no cnnsidKrablo waste cf material in the line of ammunition during the courso of the combat.
