Wilson J. Moore Transcript

Feb 10 1862, Unity, ME

J.L. Hodsdon, Adj General, Augusta ME

My Dear Sir,

Wilson J. Moor belonging to the Company D. Capt Smith. Cavalry Rig' is loafing about here- in good health and does not mean to go: he came home on a furlough- with a cold. He is buying liquor and getting drunk. And we think that you should call him immediately to his place- and have him put under strict discipline. A letter has gone to Capt Smith signed by some of the citizens of this place.

Yours Truly,

J. F. Parkhurst

 

PS. Did you receive my letter a week ago in relation to some of the soldiers pay. I sent down a receipt signed by several.
