6th Vermont Infantry
Major Oscar Hale
Jan. 29, 1863---I learn with pleasure & regret that Capt. Hale is to be Maj. of the regt. He merits it & I am glad to see him rise, still I am sorry to loose so good a Capt.
Jan. 31---I take measures to raise a sufficient sum in our company for the purpose of buying Maj. O. A. Hale a sword & belt as a token of our esteem & respect. He has long been our noble Captain.
Feb. 14---We present our once loved Captain, now a Major, a splendid sword and belt worth $60.00. It was imposed on me to make the presentation and remarks appropriate. We took the Maj. by supprise. He made us some well addressed remarks.
