Thursday. W. A. Mitchell, of Kenduskeag, who has been in hospital since the middle of January, died last night at 8 o’clock. He has been sinking fast for a week, having been unable to keep any food down, & having no appetite. We buried him by the side of York this afternoon. Thus three of our Co. have passed away since we came to this place, & men of the other Co’s are dying daily. About 6 o’clock this evening a member of Co. K, who has been unwell for some time, while going from his tent to his officer’s quarters fell suddenly, & expired in a few moments. About an hour after in passing the tent I saw them nailing him up in his coffin—so suddenly do men die here, & so hastily are they made ready for the grave. This P.M. a boat arrived from N.O. bringing another mail. No letter came for me, however.
