of acute pain. Yesterday morning he arose very early and worked

Corporal John Hyland, of Canadice, attached to Captain Wood's
company, 13th Regt. N. Y. S. V., died on the 26th of February.
Intelligence of the sad event was conveyed to his wife in the following
Fort Corcoran, Va., March 1, 1862
Mrs. Mary J. Hyland:
Dear Madam: You have doubtless, before this, received the sorrowful
intelligence of the death of your husband. The fatal result was as
unexpected to us as it could possibly have been to you, for, though
very sick, yet, he had commenced to improve and was pronounced out of
danger. He received the very best attention from his comrades, having
from Sergt. Hartman, Sergt. Wilson and Corporal Claven; but a sudden
in the weather affected him so much as to cause him to fall rapidly,
he expired about 12 hours thereafter, in the evening of the 26th
February. His death was easy, and it is gratifying to me to add, that
to be at peace with all the world, and fully prepares to enter upon the
world to come.
From his kind disposition and honorable character, he had so endeared
himself to us, that we mourn him as a brother, and I hereby extend to
you the condolence and sympathy of his late comrades, all of whom join
with me cheerfully. His disease was typhoid pneumonia, following the
measles, which in almost all cases proves fatal. Upon his decease, I
telegraphed to my father, at Dansville, to inform you and notify us
what disposition to make of his remains; but getting no reply, we had
today given him a fitting burial. The expenses were borne, as he
desired, out of his own funds.
We have marching orders, and shall soon leave this spot; are expecting
to go every hour -- it was this that made it impossible for us to wait
longer to hear from you. Again tendering to you my deepest sympathies,
and desiring that you will not fail to write me if I can be of any
further service to you. I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
Ralph T. Wood, Capt., 13th N. Y. S. V.

Canadice on the 7th, and were buried, with military honors, Sunday, the
9th. An appropriate feeling and patriotic discourse was pronounced on
the occasion by Elder Justin at the Baptist meeting house.
