Charles Goddard's Letter to his Mother, September 21, 1863

Camp Distribution

Va Sept 21st 1863

Dear Mother

Supposing the regiment in NY I left the Broad and Cherry Street Hospital the tenth of this month and arrived at N York City about 4 o’clock the morning of the 11th to find the 1st Minnesota Regt gone for Alexandria and from there the Provost Marshall sent us to Gov [Governor’s ]Island to await transportation, there we staid until the 16th then we embarked for Alexandria on board of the Atlantic and after a rough sail of 4 days and nights we arrived here in this distribution camp. I am quite well. Expect to stay here some 2 weeks and I think it would be safe for you to write me here.

With this short letter to show you whare I am and love to Brother Orrin I remain Your Son

Charles E. Goddard

P.S.

I saw Trinity Church

Barnum’s M

City Hall Astor House

Wall Street

Tombs

&

Broadway in what

Time I was in N York City. I do not

mean the inside but just the

buildings. I often had a desire

to see N York City & now I

can say I have saw it.
