COOK - On the 3d inst., in regimental hospital at Fort Slocum, D.C., of typhoid fever, SIMEON E. COOK, of Battery C, 1st Vt. Art., formerly of Pawlet, Vt., aged 20 years.
One year ago when his country called for aid he freely gave his services for his country's cause. - He soon won the respect of all his comrades, and has ever been a good and faithful soldier, much esteemed by officers and men. He was a young man of good principles, and fine capabilities, but death called for him, and his spirit has flown away.
Many are they that have gone before
Their lives for their country given -
Peace to their ashes evermore
Sweet rest for them in heaven.
