John H. CHASE, He was mustered into service Oct 12, 1861, at Concord. He served with his regiment until his discharge, Feb 7, 1863. Have been unable to learn much about his career. He was a son of Perley Chase, who owned a farm on the Catamount road. His mother was Sophia Garland, who died when John was quite small, and he ever after made his home with his grandmother Garland, on Main street in the village. A certain captain, whose name for obvious reasons I will not mention, was a very rapid and very poor penman. One day he sent one of his men to the quartermaster for something, telling the man what he wanted, in addition to making out the requisition. He also took occasion to write a note to the quartermaster on some private matter. That evening the quartermaster appeared at the captain's tent, and after chatting a few minutes, said, "Are you a good hand at deciphering manuscript? The colonel said he believed you were." "I can do something at it," replied the captain, evidently flattered by his companion's remarks, "what have you got?" "A letter," answered the quartermaster, handing out the one the captain had sent him that morning. The captain took it, looked it over, turned the paper first this way, then that, and at last broke out, "I hope you don't call that writing. I should say that a spider fell in the ink, then crawled over the paper." Looking at it again, he continued, "If any man should send me such a scrawl, I should feel like kicking him. Where did you get it?" "One of your men brought it to me this morning, and said you sent it." "Said I sent it?" inquired the captain with a puzzled look,--"Oh, yes," he continued, "I know now what it is about, and I should think any blamed fool might read that; it is as plain as the nose on your face." There was a shout outside; several officers had been listening to the conversation, and it cost the captain a box of cigars.
