Woonsocket Patriot and RI State Register
Woonsocket, RI, Aug 16, 1861
"Leland Jenckes, a private in the First Regiment, who was wounded at Bull Run, has been heard from at Manassas. His father, William A Jenckes, has received the following letter:
Manassas, VA, July 27, 1861
My Dear Sir:
At the request of a person who has just seen your son, I write to say to you that he is alive, though wounded. His wound however, I am informed is not dangerous. He is receiving as much care and attention as is possible under existing circumstances and such as we are able to give our own wounded. I apprehend he has had reason in no way to find fault with the conduct of his captors; and I hope in due time he will be restored to his friends, resolved never again to be induced to leave them for the purpose of subjugating a free people and a sovereign state.

Thomas Jordan"
