* The name is in the original manuscript, but has never been given in any printed list.–A

1. Fredrick Wave first appeared in Rathburn’s Narrative, before alluded to, and was copied by Mr. Harris. The original manuscript list of paroled wounded is that of Rufus Avery, in which this name is Fredrick Moore. Though carelessly written, anyone can see the same reading which gave us Wave, should have given us Wavegan or Morgan. Fredrick Moore drew a pension. I have put him in the place of Wavgan who has for a century taken the honors due to Moore, who lost a house on Groton Bank by the fire. No trace of Wave can be found. He seems to have disappeared as completely as his namesakes after a gale.
