A Horse’s Tale

Excerpt from this great book:

The Seventh Cavalry still in garrison, here; also the Ninth
Dragoons, two artillery companies, and some infantry.  All glad to
see me, including General Alison, commandant.  The officers’ ladies
and children well, and called upon me–with sugar.  Colonel Drake,
Seventh Cavalry, said some pleasant things; Mrs. Drake was very
complimentary; also Captain and Mrs. Marsh, Company B, Seventh
Cavalry; also the Chaplain, who is always kind and pleasant to me,
because I kicked the lungs out of a trader once.  It was Tommy
Drake and Fanny Marsh that furnished the sugar–nice children, the
nicest at the post, I think.
