Letter from Captain A.S. Daggett to Samuel R. Lemont, July 6, 1862. Daggett wrote to Samuel Lemont to inform him that his son received wounds in a recent battle and that the last two letters sent to him did not make it in time. He then relayed the circumstances surrounding Frank's injuries received during battle and that soon he may be able to return to the field.
