Richmond to be taken!
Peace to be declared!
Probably the last chance to serve your country.
A few more able bodied men wanted to fill up the Company now on drill at Farmington Hill, for the 16th Maine Regiment.
One months pay in advance; also $100 at the close of the service. Ample provisions made for all recruits at the Stoddard House.

Pay and Subsistence to commence from the date of enlistment.

Daniel Marston, Recruiting Officer
Phillips, June 21, 1862
