Boyett Brown Reams

Letter from J. E. Boyett for Information of Mollie Brown and Sallie Reams, Chico, Texas.

J. E. Boyett, Chico, Texas:-I wish to make inquiry of the whereabouts of two ladies who waited upon me when I was wounded at Franklin, Tenn. Their names, at that "long time ago," were Misses Mollie Brown, and Sallie Reams. I belonged to the Forty-Seventh Tennessee Regiment, Chetaham's Division. Fell just where the Columbia and Franklin Turnpikes cross, and lay there all night. I was wounded in the left shoulder and right thigh. These ladies came to me the next morning just after sun up. They dressed my wounds and waited on me for seventeen days, until I was sent to Nashville. I would like to hear from them if living. I often think of these dear ladies as having saved my life.
