Hancock has taken Sheridan place in the Valley and it is said that he has hundred thousand troops under his command in the Valley and they are going to him every day.

We have voted in the field so that there will not be much prospect of getting home this April...The Regiment voted most all for Buckingham ...Parris M. Law.".
