honorable discharge as sergeant a few
hours after his parole he went to pro
cure some coffee for his father Upon
returning from his errand the father
could not be found and for ten years no
word came of him when the war depart
ment at Washington sent the doctor his
fathers pocket diary with the informa
tion the father was dead and buried
somewhere in the south land the exact
place being still unknown The mother
in York state not hearing from husband
or son for long while and deeming them
