Letter from Assistant surgeon H.S. Schell to Capt. T.C. Kendall requesting the descriptive list of Private Mauz. V.V. Washburn. A descriptive list is a soldier's record which documents his medical history, physical description, as well as clothing accounts and deposits. In this case, Schell would be requesting his medical history, but would receive an all-encompassing descriptive list of Private Washburn. Schell states that two application requests have been made for this soldier's descriptive list: one on October 24, 1864 and the other on January 24, 1865. He notes that the Cuyler Hospital has yet to receive the requested descriptive list.
Letter requesting that the descriptive list and clothing accounts for Maus V. V. Washburn, who is a patient in the Cuyler U. S. Army General Hospital in Philadelphia, be forwarded to the Medical Director's Office in Philadelphia as he was admitted with nothing.
