LAMOILLE NEWSDEALER: AUG.30, 1865

In the U.S. Hospital, Frederick, Md. Jan.6, 1865, James Monroe Beals, a member of Co. C 1st Vermont cavalry, and formerly of Walden, Vt., aged 16 years, and four months.

He voluntarily enlisted in September, 1864, and joining the 1st Vermont cavalry- that branch of the service being his preference-- faithfully performed the duties and shared the privati of a soldier, until a few weeks before his death, when he was attacked with the prevalent and malignant disease- chronic diarhoea and fever, which proved fatal to him.

A letter was received by his parents, a short time after his death, from one of the hospital nurses, in which they were assured that every thing was done that could be for the purpose of making his last sickness cheerful.
