It was stated in the Daily Argus a few days since that Francia G. Anspach, the Ann Arbor boy who was severely wonnded in the jaw in the PhiHppiues, on Feb. 24, was on his way home. Yesterday a letter was received here frorn hini saying he was still confined in the hospital at Manila, [t was expected th.;t he left there in February for San Francisco but owing to the inability of ciwriug for hiinself he was not permitted to leave on the U. S. hospital ship Grant, which sailed from that place on Feb. 28. His wound is more serions than was first stated at which time it was thoaght to be slight, bt.t since he has had to have it lanced so much that by the time he gets home he fears his face will be much damaged. At the time of writing he had been in the hospital for five weeks aud was reduced in weight to about 100 pounds having lost nearly 60 pounds since being wonnded. He is unable to eat auything bnt liquid food and people do not genérally get fat on that. At the time of writing he expected to leave on the hospital ship Solas which was to sail from Manila on March 30 bnt it is not yet known whether or not he did. It will be necessary for bim to remain in the hospital at San Fraucisco for two months or more before he will be able to return to Ann Arbor. His many friends will regret to learn of this serious misfortune coming upon hiru in the manner it does. His jaw will be entirely removed ana a silver píate put in its place and will no doubt be anything but a pleasure to him,
