the men go to the hoHpital half of them
have to lie* on telr blankets on the

men had almost as soon be ordered to
the guard house as to the hospital. The
accommodations are very poor and we

a great deal worse with the other de
"The other day a surgeon asked n
post commander to let him send home
the men who were physically disabled
for duty. The reply he got was that
there was plenty of dirt in Cuba to
bury them if they died. Our rations
are poor. Ail we get, sick or well, is
fat bacon, a few beans and once or
twice a week a few canned tomatoes.
