David Wills Transcript

Gettysburg Dec. 5th, 1863

To His Excellency,
Abner Coburn
Gov. of Maine
Sir,

The Body of a man by the name of Edward Oglesbury 4th ------- which the person superintending the removals thinks is Maine and the person superintending the burials thinks he can discover the following 4th Alabaman on the board. ‘Maine’ is the termination and whether there is anything else before it is the matter in doubt.  Will you please refer this matter to your Adjutant General and let him look over the list of names in the 4th Maine Regt. of Infantry and let me know whether the name of Edward Oglesbury is among the number.

I remain
Very Respectfully
Your Obt Servant,
David Wills
