Col. Tuttle

The St. Louis Democrat, of Monday, gives Colonel, soon General, Tuttle the following well deserved notice:

“Col. Tuttle, of the brave Iowa Second, went up on the Northerner Saturday evening, on his way home. The Colonel is much emaciated and reduced with rheumatism, but hopes to be able to return to the field in a few weeks. The country has reason to be proud of Col. Tuttle, and the Iowa people will give him a cordial welcome.”
