Comrade Chas. W. Parker
Whereas you were the first commander of Isaac Davis Post No. 138 and you are now laid upon a bed of suffering and have been so confined for a number of months and indeed have been far from a slate of health for some years and
Whereas we all know you to be a true man, possessed of the high principles of our order, Fraternity, Charity and Loyalty and
Whereas your sorrows and sufferings as a soldier have been borne with patriotic fortitude as a prisoner of war with determined courage through extreme suffering and
Whereas you have endeared yourself to all the comrades of the Isaac Davis Post as well as every lover of his country with whom you have been acquainted wherefore
Resolved that in these hours of our suffering and weakness, we tended to you our warmest sympathies
Resolved that we will ask the presence and blessing of Almighty God to the end that you may be restored to your wanted health and strength and if the petition cannot be granted that He may be with you all through the journey of life to soften all the way and finally, to lift the curtain that opens into the city of God and that you may have an abundant entrance through our Lord Jesus Christ into the eternal home where sickness and sorrow shall be unknown.
By order and in behalf of the Post in F. C.
and L. I. Hutchins
West Acton 13th 1889
Dear Comrades. The set of resolutions passed
by our Post Sept. 11th, have just been received and read to me.
They have gone to the center of a loyal soldier's heart.
Yours in F. C. + L.
