Ella Cole, who was about 11, wrote to her brother Charles, a solider in Co. K of the 25th Maine Regiment in Arlington Heights, Virginia, that "the scholars all miss you at school."
She sent him a sheet of paper and an envelope for a return letter. She noted that a number of his classmates had written to him and were awaiting replies.
Cole's father, Benjamin, mentioned that Sebago needed to enlist three more three-month men and three more three-year men.
