We retired to a room, and in a few moments agreed upon a truce… Then, rejoining the throng of officers, introductions and many pleasant civilities passed… A bountiful luncheon was spread, of which we partook, with joyous poppings of champagne- corks… the first agreeable explosive sounds I had heard for years. The air of "Hail Columbia," which the band in attendance struck up, was instantly changed by Canby's order to that of "Dixie;" but I insisted on the first, and expressed a hope that Columbia would be again a happy land, a sentiment by many libations.
