Camp, Well I don’t know what
Near Centerville Va
This has been a day of excitement, this morning at 7, we received Orders, to be ready to move, at 8 AM, with Knapsacks & Haversacks, At 8 we fell out, & Stacked our Arms, then Struck our Tents, pulled down our Lumber, preparatory to removing our Camp.
We are now, near the Stone Mill Road, back of the 9th Mass Battery. The Camp will do very well, but it does not commence with our old one. But the worse is to come, We have changed our Position in Camp, We now are in Co B’s place, on the left of the Regiment. This is the worst place in the Regt, it is the hardest on the march, & is a very undesirable position. The reason why we changed, is this, Capt of Co A, is 1st Senior Capt, so he has the right, Capt Holmes, is 2nd Sen, Capt, so he has the left & so on. As soon as Capt Seely of Co A is promoted then we take the Right. It will take us some time to learn our new places,
The Paymaster arrived today, so I think we will get our Pay, tomorrow or next day. So you see, where we have some trouble, we have some pay to counterbalance it.
did you hear while here, that Granger, was to be Court Martialed. He is, for giving the Countersign, to Dreyer & others,
Jun 3d 5,15 AM. We have had a nice Shower during the night, the Air is cool now & pleasant. They sign the Pay Roll today, so tomorrow for the Money. I shall hope to hear from you soon, Will write as soon as anything turns up.
Love to all
