From the Vermont 2d Regiment. – We are permitted to copy the following extract from a private letter from a member of the Vt. 2d.
I have just returned from attending the funeral of one of Co. I (the Burlington Company) of the 5th Reg’t. his name is George Loggins from St. George, Vt., he has a brother in Co. G., and another in his own company in the 5th Regiment. They were three steady, sober, well-behaved men. I know the one in our company is one of our best men, and from what I hear the others were as much thought of in their own regiments. The service was performed by an Episcopal clergyman, and the scene around the grave was very affecting – in fact, I could not keep the tears from coming in my own eyes. The procession marching to the grave in a slow step, a squad of men in front with their arms reversed, and the fife and muffled drum staying a low and very mournful dead march. If any thing will bring tears into a man’s eyes, that will.
