Soldier plea for discharge, Baton Rouge, 1863

The younger Frazier pursued the issue himself -- with the same outcome.

Shepley, responding to a plea from a friend of the family, received word that the surgeon could not certify a discharge for a family issue in Maine.

A note on the back of a letter from the younger Frazier letter suggests that Frazier could not be discharged without a surgeon's note of disability.
