[Annotation by General Hodsdon: Order sent - ]

Bangor May 17, ‘64

Friend Hodsdon –

The boys of the High and Select Schools, under a city ordinance, are just commencing military drill as a regular weekly exercise.  The only arms available for them are the musketoons.  The Arsenal Keeper, Jere Maxwell, says there are about 40 of them which have been in use at Provost Marshalls Department, and which he is about to replace in the Arsenal. Can the boys have the use of the same, the City being responsible for them? An affirmative answer, including order for same on Arsenal Keeper, will much oblige

Yr. Ob’t S’vt,
