Mra Calista Grant :
Dear Aunt , Uncle and Consina :
I received your letter of Sept. 24
today. Juat about one hour after
writing ; the letter that will pre
cede this I received an order to
vamoose from the 2d Reserve
Hospital to the lat Diviaion Hos
pital at this place. We left the
next day , the 24th of October , on
the train for Calumpit ; we arriv
ed there at noon , expecting-
take the boat up the Rio Grande
for here. We went into camp in
an old sugar house and stayed
there till Saturday , passing- the
hours swimmingboating - and
telegraphing- rations every
two days. On Saturday we re
ceived orders from Gen. Otia to
proceed by train to San Fernan
do and there report to the com
manding officer of the U S V. for
rations and escourt This we did
and on the following Monday we
left San Fernando , accompanied
by the wagon train and a battal
ion of 34th U.S V. We arrived
here safely on Wednesday night ,
having hiked the distance of 40
miles through the mountains
On the train from Manila to Cal
umpit I met John Perrin ; he has
received the appointment of 2d
Lieutenant in the 27th USV.
He has been running a store in
San Fernando with Whitcomb ,
one of the Nebraska boys whom
Will will remember. This ia a
beautiful place ; it is larger than
San Fernando and better built.
The natives did not destroy the
fine buildings , and everything ia
in good order ; it lies on the bank
of the Rio Grande , 10 miles north
of Mt. Arayat and 700 feet above
the level of the sea. The days
are fine and the nights are cool ;
the streets are shaded by large
Mango trees and all kinds of
fruit is in abundance. The people
here are not of the same class as
those around Manila ; these are
Papongas , and speak the Papon-
a language ; they arc not so
hlthy and seem to be a more pro
gressive class than the Tagaloa ,
I infiant to itave sent some Christ
inas presents home so that they
would arrive about Christmas ,
but cannot as we will not be paid
until January. Then I will do
the best I can. Don't forget that
Christmas box , for I got left last
year , and you cannot imagine
what a Godsend anything like
that would be Please send me
some stamps , as we cannot get
them here , and can not get to go
to Manila on any excuse I am
working here in the office , and
you may bet I am glad I didn't get
into a ward. I got a letter today
from Emmett with one of his pic
tures ; it is as natural as any I ever
saw. VVell I must close aa I have
some letters to copy for the Major ,
Your loving nephew ,
