* Major-General Meade, in his official order announcing his death, say: "The public services of the deceased, in connection with the Army of the Potomac, from its organization to within a few months of its muster out, at the close of the War, are too well known to require recital. There was hardly an engagement in which he did not take part; there is not a portion of its records or written history that does not bear witness to his ability and fidelity; and to its officers and soldiers he was especially endeared by a never failing patience and kindliness of heart, that made no labor irksome that could promote their interests and welfare. The General Commanding feels that this official notice is due, not only to the public career, but to the private virtues of this distinguished soldier, and that in him the country has lost a faithful servant, and the army a valuable associate and friend."
