Union major general called "Fighting Joe" who commanded the Army of the Potomac with little success. Uncommon war-date ALS, 1¼pp, 7¾"x9¾", Camp Union [near Bladensburg, MD], Sep 16, 1861. On National Mills embossed stationery from "Head Qrs. Hoskin's Brigade" to Surgeon Robert Crooke Wood, US Amy. In full: "I have learned in a semi-official form that an effort is being made to remove Surgeon Luther V. Bell from my staff. It is said that he is to be ordered to the Western Division. Surgeon Bell has been on my staff for several weeks & is now fully informed of the duties required of him by me. He desires to remain where he is. There are those who prefer to go West & why not send them? At the time a similar effort was made, almost two weeks since a letter from the Head Quarters of the Army of the Potomac advised me in substance that Surgeon Bell could remain with me. What has caused the change. I do hope that you will use your influence to prevent this removal. I shall ever esteem it as an especial Kindness..."
