Friday Sept. 20

Lorin Andrews, President of Kenyon College and Colonel of the 4" Reg. O.V.M. died at his residence at Gambler, Wednesday the 18th of typhoid fever contracted in the camp.  He was brave, talented, generous and is very sincerely lamented.  
At a review of his troops lately McClellan made this laconic speech, "Soldiers, we have seen our last defeat.  You stand by me and I will stand by you, and henceforth victory will crown our efforts".  May the future verify the prophecy it contains.
