HEADQUARTERS, COL. BERDAN'S REG.

CAMP OF INSTRUCTION, WASHINGTON,D.C.

NOV. 4TH, 1861

Died in Co. F. from Vermont on the 1st inst.,of heart disease and congestion of the lungs, Mr. George H. Johnson, of West Wardsboro,aged 29 years.

This is the second man that the Vermont Company have lost since we got to camp, and the only two that have died out of the regiment.

Mr. Johnson was sent to the hospital Thursday at 3 o'clock, and died the next day at five. He leaves a wife and child in Wardsboro, without the neccessaries of life, and it is hoped the people of Vermont will not let such go without being cared for.
