Letter on regimental forms, 1861
P. Haggerty wrote from the Dept. of New England in December 1861 to Col. George F. Shepley, commander of the 12th Maine Infantry Regiment, about blank forms he was sending. Part of his message is in prose, but the conclusion is in poetry: As Captain Knight The jolly wight To night remains in Boston Therefore the rolls And paper scrolls I send to your direction Capt. Enoch Knight of Bridgton was the commander of Co. E of the 12th Maine.
