The Marine hospital at Burlington was turned over to the State and general government in May, 1862; the arrangement of which was in charge of General Davis, as were also the hospital buildings at Brattleboro. In 1864 he erected the hospital and other buildings at Montpelier. From the commencement to the end of his administration, Quartermaster-General Davis was a most patriotic and zealous officer, whose heart was thoroughly in accord with the government in putting down the rebellion."
