Horatio Cole, who was about 16, wrote to his brother Charles, serving in Co. K of the 25th Maine outside Washington D.C., saying the family had been writing letter but weren't sure Charles was receiving them.
Benjamin Cole wrote a page on the letter telling his son that Noah Pendexter, one of the soldier's from Charles' regiment, was still missing. He had previously written that Pendexter had probably deserted.
He also wrote that a South Bridgton soldier, who was thought to be dead, was alive and his wife, who refused to attend his funeral, was on her way to see him in Washington.
