Harriet Eaton, a nurse, wrote to Ellen Usher Bacon in October 1864 about her arrival at City Point, Virginia, where she was to continue her nursing work.

She had been a nurse for the Maine Camp Hospital Association, with which Bacon was involved. She may have been with the Maine Agency of the Sanitary Commission in 1864.

She described the camp, her friends she encountered and the work she was doing.
