War-date Union soldier's letter, 2pp. 4to., written by Pvt. Thomas J. Bond, Co. G, 2nd Ohio Vols., Murfreesboro, [Tenn.], June 12, 63, in part: "…there was a man hung on Friday and one today. It was a short distance from camp. I went over and saw him but did not go to see that [man hung] today for one was enough. They murdered a man. They cut his ears off and pulled his toung out and then cut his throat but I think they [those hung] got what they deserved…they belonged to a band of guerrillas. I would like very much to be their to attend to them pick nicker's but it would not [have] done for me…to been to the one where Stant [was.]…I would have got in a fuss with some of the Butternuts for I hate them worse than the vilest…Rebels. There is no…news transpiring nor any signs of a forward move but when we do move it will be in quick time…Thomas J. Bond." Light soiling, else VG
