JOHN WELCH was a man whom no short sketch of mine could do him justice and as I am limited to a few lines I must simply say that he possessed all the qualities which go to make a good soldier. You might with safety rely on him in any emergency in life. He was content to serve in a humble sphere while he was competent to command a company. He acted as scout outside our lines and rendered valuable service. No better soldier ever served in any army. The history of his after life may be read in another place in this history.
