Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, May 18th 1862
Mr Dear Father and Mother,---I have just come back from the funeral of one of the men of our regt. Company D. who died in the Hospital last Friday night. His name is Harry Cox; he has lived a good deal in the vicinity of Reedsburg; some of our boys knew him, though I don't remember ever seeing him before we came into camp. There has not been a death in our company since its organization; there have been two of our boys (John Donahoe and Chat Tinker both from Cosenovia) in the Hospital for a few days but they are not dangerously sick. Mr. Pearson remains about the same, at least he is no worse. I am quite well. If I could be at home on Sundays I could be satisfied to be here the balance of the time; that is as long as it might be necessary but here there is very little difference made between Sundays and other days. Sunday forenoons are the regular times for inspection of arms and accoutrements; we do not drill on Sundays but in the afternoon at 5 o'clock we have Dress Parade just the same as other days. Yesterday we got the news that the 12th Wis. reg't was ordered to Corinth and that the first reg't of Wis. Cavalry had already been in a skirmish and had taken a considerable number of prisoners. It is wonderful to me if the last be true for it is not a month yet since they got their horses, it was while we were at St. Louis. I shouldn't have thought, to see them. that they would have been fit to go into action for six months; but it seems our commanders think as soon as men are fitted up with soldiers equipment, they are ready to storm entrenchments or anything else coming within the line of military business.

Wednesday May 21st 1862 This morning on Dress Parade there was a special order read to the effect that Col. Wm. A. Barstow of the 3rd reg't Wis. Cavalry had been appointed Provost Marshall of the Department of Kansas in place of Col. Graham of the 8th regt. Kansas Cavalry. A detachment of Barstows Cavalry has been sent with the Paymaster General as guard to pay off the Lac's and Fox Indians: they reported at Major General Blunts office in Leavenworth City at 8 o'clock this morning. I like our new Lieutenant better than Asa Wood. He has much more military look and manner and besides he knows a great deal more of what belongs to camp living than Wood. The Captain and Regimental Surgeon have just now been in our tent to see Mr. Pearson; the Surgeon says that Mr. Pearson ought not to be here; he will probably be discharged, if he is, I shall send this letter by him. I hope he will get a discharge, because I don't think he will ever get well here, and if he goes to the hospital he will be pretty sure to die. I am very sorry that he should be taken sick so as to have to leave for he is the only friend I have in Camp. In saying this I want you to understand that I have as many friends as any one, I know of in the company, but Mr. Pearson is the only one I am willing to own as a friend. The matter lies entirely with the Captain, whether he is discharged or kept here. That is, the Surgeon will make out a certificate of disability if the Captain desires him to.

Monday morning May 26 Calvin Pearson is here yet. He is no better. He has not got his discharge yet, last night I went to the Captain to talk with him about it and to see what caused the delay, he (the Capt.) said that the papers were in the hand of the Major General Commanding that he would mention their hold up and see thier got through as soon as possible. Last Saturday night our company was furnished with horses. They are a very nice lot considering; the boys expect the Officer, "That" is Commissioned Officers" horses will be black. I have got a very fine dark bay or light brown horse four years old this spring. I had my choice out of all that were appropriated for our Company. Yesterday Sundaty 26 Captain Vittinn sent for me to his tent, he told me that he had decided to have me appointed a sergent of his company to fill one of the vacancies. So I suppose for the present I am fifth sergeant; you remember I was second Corporal before. A Privates wages are $13.00 per month - A Corporal's $14.00 per month, and a Sergeant $17.00 per month, thats besides board and clothes. Last night Lieutenant B. F. Blacknoun was in our tent he said he had left his regiment Saturday morning, and was going back to meet them this morning (Monday). I have no time to finish this letter Mr. Pearson will explain (Wm. Stansfield)
