Clason, Marshall Blair


Upon being paid, Marshall provides instructions to his mother as to how he wants the money he is sending home distributed. He reiterates his newfound support for the continuation of the war and his belief that "the institution of slavery is a great evil and a grievous curse." He recounts the recent success of the 40th Ohio Volunteer Infantry in repelling a Confederate attack.
