Letter on regimental forms, 1861

Contributed by Maine Historical Society

Description

P. Haggerty wrote from the Dept. of New England in December 1861 to Col. George F. Shepley, commander of the 12th Maine Infantry Regiment, about blank forms he was sending. Part of his message is in prose, but the conclusion is in poetry:

As Captain Knight
The jolly wight
To night remains in Boston
Therefore the rolls
And paper scrolls
I send to your direction

Capt. Enoch Knight of Bridgton was the commander of Co. E of the 12th Maine.
