The foregoing, with the exception of the discharged and deserters, is the muster roll of our company as it now stands. We have lost but one man by death, Corporal David Batchelor of Gilboa, Scho. Co., at Poolesville, Md., of typhoid fever. He was buried at the above named place, with the honors of war. There are some in the list that are from other Counties, but they are all members of Company E. I also send the list of the discharged and the deserters. We are encamped a short distance back of the Capitol, anxiously awaiting orders to go somewhere; our division has gone to Fortress Monroe, both whether we will follow, we do not know.

Yours, &c.,
Samuel W. Sprague
