    More Information:

    In part: "The most tormenting anxiety of the soldier who has left his home to fight the battles of his country, is for the welfare & support of the family he has left behind him and it is not too much to say that this very natural feeling, founded, in many cases, upon bitter experience of carelessness and neglect on which he had no control has been the occasion of more encouragement and discontent in the Army than all other causes combined."
