“…I have put this to write you a few lines … the direction for collecting bounty of deceased soldiers…
I am very sorry not to have furnished you the desired information sooner but it was impossible. I am getting along nicely thus far – raw Brigade [2nd Maine Infantry, the first Maine unit to leave for the front] but will come out right with I think. My Brigade is stationed on the extreme left of the “Army of the Potomac” five miles from Mt. Vernon, a good honorable position.
Will write you fully in a few days…C.D.Jameson”
Very Fine.
