Monticello, Ills. Dec. 15th 1864

Gov. Yates -

I wish to write to you in regard to what can be done in the case of my husband, Col. Francis H. Lowry, of the 107th Ills. Vol., who was reported killed in the engagement at Franklin, Tenn. Nov. 30th.

The papers since state that that he was wounded, and in Nashville. I have had no private information, except that he was severely wounded in the head


and could not be summoned without endangering his life and being perfectly rational preferred being left at Franklin, and was left there in care of one of our surgeons.

I cannot ascertain anything further than this or if he is at Nashville could I in any way get through to that place now? If he is at Franklin would it be possible for me, or any one, to get to him?

If you can give me any information, as to what can be done or might be done, you will greatly relieve a sorrow stricken heart.

Very Respectfully,

Eliza A. Lowry
