That the women of the State of Mississippi, for their exertions in behalf of the cause of Southern Independence, are entitled to the hearty thanks of every lover of his country; and this legislature, acting from a sense of justice and of gratitude, extend to them individually and collectively the sincere thanks of the people of this State for their noble efforts in aiding the cause of our common country. In his inaugural address to the legislature, November 16, 1863, on this subject, Governor Clark said: One of the most gratifying indications of the times is the resolute spirit of industry manifested by our women. The spinning-wheel is preferred to the harp, and the loom makes music of loftier patriotism and inspiration than the keys of the piano.

But the land attack on Mobile was not made until the next spring. Of the same date as Maury's letter to Forrest, there was a communication from Col. J. D.
