Obituary

A CORRESPONDENT WRITES:

For those that never wore the Blue claim there are no dependant or destitute old soldiers hereabouts, here is a case of one that comes pretty near home:

Allen Gould, late of Company F., 8th Vermont regiment enlisted in that company in December, 1861. He was discharged for disability a year later, and has been, for some time, wandering about in an attempt to prove whether his disabilities were contracted in the bayous of Louisiana, or that he was an invalid when he enlisted. Wandering about until his health and strength failed entirely, and and within a short time was “kindly” taken to the poorhouse in Bakersfield.
