Our esteemed friend, Capt. R. A.
Luter, of Big Sandy, sends us the
following letter from Capt. Leon
Caruway, dated at Iloilo, P. I., Sep
tember 0, 1899:
"Dear Bob At last, the fickle
goddess, Fortune, has smiled upon
'yours truly,' and the shoulder
straps of a captain grace his manly
shoulders. I trness vou knew of
the promotions in the First before
I did. I was sworn in as captain
by Colonel Childress to the com
mand of company I, which was ex
actly to my liking.
"I have been actually in com
mand of the company since Juno
1G, as Captain Givens has been re
cruiting his couipany (D) of the.
Thirty-seventh U. S. Army Volun
teers. I could have cotten in this
regiment, -and Major Cheatham,
who superintended 1'he rrecruiting
in the First Tennessee, held a place
open for me a week or ten days af
ter I told him I wouldn't accept,
and rather insisted on my staying
with him.
"I have been in the Philippine
Islands as long as I care to stay,
and so I did not feel kindly toward
accepting a captaincy in the Thirty-seventh
U. S. Army Volunteers.
No more of these islands for me.
"There is no fighting on this is
land now, nor has there been in ,
mouth. Colonel Childress in com
mand of a detachment of 60 men,
of which there was a platoon from
company I (myself in command),
marched out to Otou, 8 miles with
in the insurgent's territory, August
4 for the purpose of making a re-
connoisance. We saw no insur
gents that is, we were not attack
ed. - We made this march of 10
miles in a blinding rain storm and
through mud and water, and you
may bet I was happy when we ar
rived back at Iloilo.
" Well, old boy, I think we will
be on our way home before this
reaches you, no you can write me
at 'Frisco when you hear that we
have' sailed. All the boys from
home are well. Give my regards
to all the boys and friends.
"Very truly,
Leon Cakaway.
