William Haley Letter to his Daughter Elzira, 1864

Item 67486 info
Sebago Historical Society

In a letter dated October 9, still at Camp Keyes, William Haley writes to his daughter Elzira that men are leaving his ward and going back to the war.

He speculates that he will be "examined" this week. He mentions that he has dreamed of being at home a number of times, "I should like to have them come to pass."

This is the only time in his letters that he clearly states his desire to be home with his family.
