This is an original letter and cover from 1862. the letter is from Dr, Joseph Rodney Layton(assisting surgeon) to his father Hon. Caleb Sipple layton of Georgetown DE. This letter was written on the USS Flambeau off the coast of Charleston South Carolina onmay11th1862. USS Flambeau (1861) was a steamer purchased by the Union Navy during the American Civil War. She was used by the Union Navy as a gunboat, operating in Confederate waterways. Joseph Layton was assigned to the ship as the acting assistant surgeon. Caleb Sipple Layton was a very prominent buisnessman, senator, represenative, judge and Secretary of the state of Delaware . I have not read the letter because I have a hard time reading this type of cursive. I have read some other correspondence between the two in other letters and it is very interesting. This is a very neat piece of southern Delaware Civil War history.
