William Sweetser Transcript

Cumberland Center Feb 20, 1863

To John L. Hodsdon, Adjutant General of Maine

Dear Sir,

I feel very anxious to have a copy of your Report – it is what I have been looking forward to for a long while.

But I see there are comparatively few copies to be distributed to the Legislature, and as the Representative from our town is Secesh in sympathy I fear my chance of getting one from him will be small.

Will you not Sir, oblige me by sending me a copy – perhaps it is asking too much – but my very great desire to possess a copy must be my apology for asking it.

Respectfully your Obt Servant,

W.D. Sweetser

Capt. Elect of Maine Militia
