Vermont. Virginia. Alexandria. 5th Vt Inf. Letter To Friend In Hospital, 1862 For Sale

Vermont. Virginia. Alexandria. 5th Vt Inf.  Letter To Friend In Hospital, 1862

This letter consists of four pages with correspondence on three pages, last page blank. It measures 5 x 8, is in good condition, fairly easy to read, and datelined "Bush Hill, Alexandria Va./Dec 8th 1863." SEE SCANS. Oddly enough even though the writer signs his name twice we have not been able to ID him - we have read the name as Wm. H. Breed, but no such name appears on the rolls of the 5th Vt. The transmittal envelope is addressed to J.D. Pa[r]menter at the General Hospital in Philadelphia, Ward Q, Bed 30, and he was in the 5th VT, discharged for disability two weeks before this letter was written. Another soldier mentioned in the letter, Douglass Loomis, was in the 5th VT, as was Frank Sawyer from Stockbridge, Vermont. If we are reading the "Breed" name wrong let us know and we will revise the description accordingly. The information we have on the three soldiers (Loomis, Parmenter, & Sawyer) will accompany the letter. Breed send to Parmenter his apologies for not answering a letter, "...but I have not bin with the Reg since the 6th of Sept so I can't know much more about them than you do. I had a letter from J. Bushey tonight and your letter was in it - hesed D.P. Loomis wassergeant and he was copral.... Gilfor is in the 16th Reg. I have seen him a number of times, he likes it first rate. Wm Jackson [possibly "Johnson"] has got his Discharge and gon home - he has lost the use of his legs, & F. Sawyer is home onfurrow. John sed the Reg was 15 miles from Fredericksburg. I am on guard at a friend's house 4 or 5 miles from Alexandria and am having a great time. I want you to be shure and write to me and tell me all about the place and how you have fared since you left the landing. Art [?] Ward is to Alexandria sick and he has been ever since we came up the river. Now be shure to write me as soon as you get this. Direct to Wm H. Breed, Bush Hill, Alexandria, Va. care of Miss Virginia Scott. I will close hoping this will find you well and that I shall hear from you soon, goodnight. I remain your friend as ever, W.H. Breed." Not the most exciting letter, but newsy in its own way and from a regiment that suffered a fair number of casualties. Payment via Paypal, though other forms of payment are usually accepted. Question: Anybody know who Virginia Scott was? MORE INFO: A generous er has written us with info about William Breed who came from Pittsfield, Vermont. He was born in 1841 and died in 1911. Wounded at Spotsylvania in September, 1864 and mustered out with rank of 1st Sergeant in June, 1865. See website Vermont in the Civil War.
