Capt. John F. Appleton of Co. H of the 12th Maine Regiment wrote a report to Col. J.W. Schaffer, chief U.S. quartermaster, concerning a bill by Mr. LeClerc for rent and damages to his building that was being used as headquarters for Co. C of the 12th Maine.
Lt. Horatio Hight of Co. C had previously written to Appleton denying LeClerc's charges of damages and suggesting that the bill already had been settled.
Appleton wrote that the case had gone before a judge three times because Capt. Charles Thornton, who had since been injured and was temporarily away from Co. C, had not been satisfied with the findings. Appleton said the bill had been paid Aug. 12.
