Letter on deceased soldier's pay, Georgetown, 1863

Contributed by John Micavich through Sebago Historical Society

William Brown of the 25th Maine Regiment wrote to his friend and neighbor from Sebago, Benjamin Cole, advising him that he could receive the wages owed his deceased son, Charles Cole, a private in Co. K of the 25th Maine Regiment.

He told Cole to write to the paymaster in Portland. Charles Cole died of typhoid fever.

Brown also noted that the health of the regiment had improved and that the 25th had lost only 15 men.
