Letter, 11 August 1841, of G.W. Folger, Chester, to Secretary of War [John] Bell, Washington, D.C.
Letter, 11 August 1841, of G.W. Folger, Chester, to Secretary of War [John] Bell, Washington, D.C., indicates that the letter writer, who identifies himself an "Ex Lt. U.S. Army," wished "to join Col. Worth (a soldier)." Asking Bell to extend his apologies to the Senate, Folger goes on to say-"I am in Debt to the government I wish to pay by Service, under my teacher of tactics, at Florida, as Lt. U.S.A. I will do my duty. I am sordid in my present situation I am fond of a Soldiers life."
