October 17th 1862


To Clarinda from friend Marion in Cohoes Albany County NY.  Discusses family and friend visiting from Schoharie.  Mrs. (Name?) mother “had a letter from her yesterday stating that Lyman had been down at Utica to attend a funeral he said one of his mates had died very suddenly and he had been down to the funeral.  I have been worried ever since for I thought perhaps it might be Mr. Dumont…. Tell Bill I would like if he would send me a paper when the regiment leaves Rome.”
