Lovell, August 16th, 1864
Can you inform me anything of Private John Stanley belonging to Company C of the 17th Regt, Maine a Vols who was wounded in the Wilderness Battle the 6th day of May he was wounded in the right shoulder. He spoke to a comrade after he was wounded and said he was bleeding inwardly and that is the last I have heard of him. I have wrote several times. I can hear nothing of his whereabouts in different places. If you can find out if he is dead or living you will oblige me.
