Horace Stafford (sic), company A, 17th Vt. Regiment, died of a wound in the head, at Campbell's hospital, Washington, June 17th. Being in an unconscious state ever after he entered the hospital, no clue as to where his parents reside could be obtained. Papers by mentioning this may aid in giving them information of their son's decease.
