[Letter from H. S. Schell to Capt. T. C. Kendall, March 8, 1865]

Date: March 8, 1865
Creator: Schell, H. S.
Description: Letter from Assistant surgeon H.S. Schell to Capt. T.C. Kendall requesting the descriptive list of Private Mauz. V.V. Washburn. A descriptive list is a soldier's record which documents his medical history, physical description, as well as clothing accounts and deposits. In this case, Schell would be requesting his medical history, but would receive an all-encompassing descriptive list of Private Washburn. Schell states that two application requests have been made for this soldier's descriptive list: one on October 24, 1864 and the other on January 24, 1865. He notes that the Cuyler Hospital has yet to receive the requested descriptive list.
