August 8, 1863
Adjutant General Hodsdon
Dear Sir,  
I wish to enquire of you in relation to Ezekiel M. Banks a member of the 16th Maine Regt, Volunteers killed at the Battle of Fredericksburg. As stated to me the facts are these, his widow and one child have come to live in the Town of Danville and application has been made to me for State aid I wish you to inform me by letter whether I should be justified in furnishing the aid.  If he was killed I suppose you have the returns.  I know she might be entitled to draw the aid for a period not exceeding one year from his death. Please answer and direct.

Selectmen of Danville
Yours Respectfully
Chas H. Cobb
Selectman of Danville
