Mortality of the 1st Vt. Artillery, from the 1st of September, 1862 to the 13th of March, 1864.
March, 18th, 1864-----
Mr. Editor:-- Below is a record of all the deaths, that have occurred since the time above stated, with the exception of a few cases of varioloid, which have not been sent to us from General Hospital as yet. I will give their names and age, with their diseases and the date of their death:--
Russell D. Warren, Bat. L, aged 20 years, of typhoid pneumonia, -- sent home Feb. 13, 1864.
The above is a true record of all that have died in our hospital, as before state, making in all, ninety-three cases in one year and a half. Perhaps some may think this a pretty large amount of sickness and death in so short a time; but it seems that thus it is. I have been connected with the hospital department all the time, with the exception of a few weeks. We have things very convenient at present, so that the sick are, or can be, well taken care of; and I think that they do have all done for them that can be, for the place.
Yours &c., W. J. Cheney.
