John D. Myrick Transcript
At the suggestion of Lt. Col. Cilley I write to inquire if we rightly understand the resolve appropriating $2000 Standards & Flags for Maine reg’ts & batteries.
I remember somewhere reading of such a resolve & Col. Cilley has written the Gov. concerning it, but as yet rec’d no reply. He is very desirous, as we all are, that a suitable standard be presented to the reg’t, inscribed with the names of our 30 engagements, together with additional five of the last glorious campaign, viz. – Five Forks, Sailors Creek, Jetersville, Farmville & Appomattox C. House.
Our present standard is too small for any inscriptions, besides being well worn and battered.
Will any steps be taken by the State in the matter?
I have the honor to be your ob’t Serv’t
