Richard Tucker Transcript

Wiscasset  
Dec 7   1861
His Excellency, Israel Washburn Jr.

Allow me to call your attention, to the facilities of Wiscasset, for embarking  the Cavalry Regiment should it be ordered South.
This place could be reached in one days march, from Augusta.  We have abundant supply of Hay & Corn. The troops could go immediately on board the transports, and as you are aware, there is no obstruction on account of ice during the severest weather.

Respectfully
Your Obt. Servant
/s/     R. H. Tucker, Jr.
