John H. Sawtell
March 12, 1863
Another Good Soldier Gone - We have been permitted to read a letter from Capt. D. W. Lewis of Co. K, 9th Vt. Regiment announcing the death of John H. Sawtell, one of his company. He died at Camp Douglas, Chicago, Feb. 18th of Dropsy of the Lungs. He was a native of this town, his parents having lived till recently "over West River." He enlisted from Vernon where his family now reside. The Capt. Says " John was a favorite with all the boys, and I can truly say he was one of the best boys I have; always at his post of duty, never murmuring with the hardships of a soldiers' life, but quiet, patient and gentlemanly in all his interactions with his fellow soldiers. I prized him, I assure you, and his loss will long be felt by all.
