A portion only of the troops went into camp under section six of said chapter, the recruitment for the nine months' service haring commenced at the time usually allotted for fall encampments. The number of men inspected in camp was eight hundred and thirty-three. The Fourth Battalion of Infantry, Major Lee, performed two separate days' duty in lieu of camp service-present one hundred and sixty men.
