Dated June 1,1886
I, John F. Higgins, enlisted as a Private in Company
"F" 9th Virginia (Artillery), being a sailor by occupation, I was transferred to the C.S. Steamer Virginia (Merrimac) and was on her when she ran down the U.S. Frigate Cumberland and when she fought the Monitor and until she was destroyed. I was then transferred to Drury's Bluff, from there I was ordered to the C.S.S. Chickamauga and made one cruise on her. I was then ordered to Battery Buchanan adjoining Fort Fisher and was wounded in the first battle at Fort Fisher Dec 24,1864, losing the right leg above the knee, which was amputated by the surgeon during the fight and I was carried next day to the hospital in Washington. About sixteen years ago i received $60.00 from the state, I have never received anything more. The leg I then purchased lasted nine years. I now request to be allowed $60.00 towards paying for the leg I am now using, which is fourth i have had to get.
