Camp DeTrobriand.

Last night our brave and respected Brigade Commander, Col. DeTrobriand reported, “relieved of his command.”  This is much to our sorrow, for he was a fine military man.  Busy around camp.  Sutler camp up.  Six apples eaten.  Fine day though somewhat chilly.  Our friend the Steward, Colman, mustered as Asst. Surgeon today.  His commission came last week.  A worthy young man meriting the promotion so long due him.
