On 21st, Sergeant Goddes, of Bent

getis at 5:20 a. m., buried at sea same
morning at ten, which was a pretty
though mournful sight. At ten o'clock
tho body was wrapped inhheots, sewed
in canvas, placed on a board and cov
ered with the stars and stripes, bourd
was placed one end on railing or ves
sel and tho other held by three of his
company comrades on each side and
two on the end who held on to a corner
of our flag. The band played, bugles
sounded, choir sang and chaplain
preached the burial services, and
when he camo to that part where it
says "deliver him to the sea," tho
slab was lifted up until tho body slid
from under the flag and down tho side
of tho ship into tho sea, thereupon
company C fired three volleys and all
was over. Tho incident left a great
impression upon the boys. It is very
peculiar what a close attachment we
form for one another in blue.
I have a state room and eat at tho
colonel's table so jou see I am getting
the bet to bo had.
We arrived hero yesterday and re
ceived a welcome in the shape of a fine
dinner for all boys in blue. The din
ner consisted of everything, winding
up with cigars. Nothing is too good
for us here.
Honolulu has a population of about
30,000, but only 2,500 American and
English who control the government.
There are a large number of Chinese
and Japanese and natives. The natives
are an intelligent race and constitute
the police force who all speak good
"American," and are anxious to give
any information desired. They are
highly pleased with what the U. S.
congre-s has done toward annexation,
and are anxiously waiting for tho stars
and stripes to be hoisted upon their
islands, and to be under the protection
of what they term the greatest
"country on earth." Stepping into
Honolulu reminds one of a Pacific sea
port town in our country.
Very truly yours.
