June 8th; last publication, July g. reading his last love letters.
Dear Friend: ,
I will now take the pleasure to
answer the little piece of- news that
was published in the Parker Post
newspaper, that was. taken from a let
ter written by Private William E. Mil
:er, about tne conditions of the First
Arizona infantry,, and I wish to" say
in behalf o'f the outfit, that Mr. Miller
has stated a lie, and that he must
be one of those mama boys, that has
been used to having her comb his
hair, and wash his face for him every
I am one of the boys that Have had
service in the United States .army,
and I will say this much, that the
First Arizona infantry is just as good
a feeding military organization that
lias ever taken the field, and I will
also admit that the regiment is no ex
pert drilling outfit, and, under the
foregoing rules it could not be, but
just give it the time and let us get
rid of a few men like Private Miller.
so that we will not be handicapped.
We will take off our hats to no
one. Private Miller seems to be one
of those men that know more than his
officers. In regards to the grub, I
wish to say that we have eating at
our mess, the lieutenant colonel, two
staff officers and the company offi
cers, and that they eat the same as
do the men. I also wish to state, that
we have the best material in the state
for officers, and to my knowledge, wo
have the best officer that could be
had anywhere for a commanding of
ficer, namely, Col. Tuthill, and also
staff officers and line officers, many
of who have seen service in the army
serving through the Indian campaign,
the Spanish-American war, the Cuban
campaign, the China campaign, and
that they are as1 efficient men as we
could get to officer the regiment.
We have been paid once since we
have been here, and been -.issued all
new clothing throughout. The only
ones that did not get new clothing
were those that refused to muster in
to the federal service, because they
had a yellow streak down their backs.
j Those men, in my estimation, should
jnot be given a pleasant look. Maybe
that is what is bothering Mr. Miller.
Yuma county has furnished 114
men, excluding Mr. Miller, as we the
boys of Yuma. county do not consider
him as one of us.
From Allen R. Duncan, a witness of
preparedness, to William E. Miller, a
witness of unpreparedness.
