The inarch to tho Presidio reservation
was an exciting one for tho soldiers
The welcome they received was second
only to that accorded the homo troops
on their return Both sides of Market
street and the other streets through
which the soldiers passed were thronged
with excited people all anxious to do
them homage Cheers upon cheers
passed up and down the lines of people

are passing judgment that there are
countless conditions to bo constantly
combat ted and overcome there before
headway can be made I fear the exact
difficulties of the situation are not fully
understood Some mistakes may have
been made but the campaign has been
conducted in a most able and conscien
tious manner and every man has done
his best No grave errors have occurred
but it isahvitys easy to look back and
comment upon what lias been done
even though that might have been ac
complished under trying ciivuin
