Blue Hill August 1st 1862
I have commenced the duty assigned me by order of the Commander-in-Chief and herewith make my first report.
John J. Carter. A private of Co (A) 14th ME Reg—claims to be absent by reason of Discharge—said discharge is dated New Orleans June 30 1862. Discharged “by reason of Surgeons Certificate of Disability.” Signed by F.S. Nickerson. Col Comd—14th Reg. Me. Vols and approved July 5, 1862 by orders of Maj Gen Butler.—by R.P. Davis. Cap C T.) in said discharge is – (“no objection to his being reenlisted is known to exist”). this line is erased.) Carter is apparently well and able to work.
William G. Pirs. is absent without discharge or furlough and from what I can learn deserted at the Battle of Bull Run. He belongs to 2nd Maine Reg—and to the Co of which Charles K Tilden was Captain) is now on Long Island in Blue Hill bay—I have requested his appearance at Augusta.
P.S. If I am not minute enough in particulars please notify me by mail at this place. A.S.
