Lt. Horatio Hight of Co. C of the 12th Maine Infantry wrote from Camp Carapet in Louisiana to Capt. John F. Appleton of Co. H of the 12th Maine in response to a bill from a man named LeClerc whose home was used by Co. C of the 12th Maine.

Hight wrote that he believed the matter already had been settled but that LeClerc's bill was "the most outrageous piece of impudence I have heard of even in New Orleans."
