MoNuIta. . By the way, when we gel home, you must make a speeoh ia the name of the families of the 94th, to give Ool. MoNulta tironer credit for the exceedingly fine man ner in whioh he has always kepi hia men covered in time of action. . . . B.ave, tu rashness himself, he Ukes ai much care of his men as if they were hn own children. Al Prairie Grove we did a. much execution as perhapa any other regi-moi.t regi-moi.t regi-moi.t in the fiold-coriainly fiold-coriainly fiold-coriainly we did our dutyycC owing to his careful manage-mont, manage-mont, manage-mont, Instead of losing from on. to two hundred men, we eame out . with a few scratches. So during the sieges, bt Is continually on the alert to see that his men do not unnecessarily unnecessarily expose theinselvos. Hore at Spanish Fort I saw him walking back and forward in a perfoel biAY of bullets, bullets, damming Tom, Dick and Harry for sticking their head bp to see what was going going on, and I am proud to ay that that was all ho had to Cud fault wild. . If we take home as we shall more than ono half of the men we brought out, the credit, is in a great degree, due to Col. MoNulta. As a militarr uiau iu action, I do not know his stiporior. , .j I am sorry to say that tha Maiican Tarantula Tarantula has bitwn hiia badly. , If it was not f,r hi wife and tmbie.
