A letter was read which had recently been received from the widow of William H. Gore, son of John Gore, the Brattleboro merchant. Gore died on the 16th of last May, near Hunnewell, Mo., as previously recorded in the Phoenix. It appears that Gore served 18 months with co. c, when he left the regiment, and afterwards enlisted in a West Virginia regiment. Up to the receipt of this letter nothing had been known of him since he left the Second regiment. His widow asks for information to enable her to complete her pension papers.
