Camp at Hasda's Farm L.C.
January 10th, 1864
To the A.G. Gaylord,
I have the honor to inform you that John Pesschbacher is a member of my company. He enlisted the 22nd day of February 1864 at Milwaukee, Wis, and has a wife and children living in that place which are solely depending upon the labor of the Senior John Pesschbacher, and that they are therefore entitled to the State Aid fund.
Very Respt. Your Obt. Servant
