A Handsome Reward.
C. E. Stowe, of Barre, was a member of the Vermont cavalry regiment. While sick, and on a discharge furlough in Maryland, he rendered valuable services to Mr. Peter Thompson, a merchant at Hagerstown. When he received his discharge, Mr. Thompson paid his expenses home, and said to him that when he reached the age of 25 years, if he abstained from the use of liquor and tobacco, he would make him a present of a hundred dollars. A few letters were exchanged by the parties, and the matter was forgotten by Stowe until a short time since, when he received a letter from Mr. Thompson making inquiries as to his circumstances, etc., to which he replied. On Christmas he received by express $10,000 in United States bonds, which he deposited in the Bank at Royalton. Mr. Thompson said he sent him these bonds not as gift, but as a token of his appreciation for saving his property from the federal soldiers, he being a wealthy man. When with him he told Mr. Stowe that he was originally from Montpelier.
