WASHINGTON, D. C.

The charge of the National Cemeteries and burial of deceased soldiers and others dying in the service of the United States in hospitals in and about Washington in under the jurisdictions of this office, and is probably the most important of my specialties. It was deemed advisable at the expiration of the burial contract, December 31,k 1863, for the Government to manufacture all the coffins required for interments in the National Cemeteries, as well as those needed for shipment to distant points. The coffins now issued cost less than one-half the price paid by contract and are far superior. The hears used for transportation, to the graves are covered ambulances, painted black, and are well suited for the purpose. The tables or headboards are principally of white pine, with the exception of some 4,000 of black walnut, purchased, more than two years ago. They
