ugh they be handled by the most brave and thoroughly disciplined troops.
Again: These guns can be manufactured at small cost, and very rapidly, which is a very important consideration.
They require only a two wheeled carriage, and are manned and managed thoroughly by jour men. In a retreat they are the most effective weapon that can be used.
for they can be fired in the face of the pursuer without halting at all, and quite as rapidly as if in battery.
I hope the ladies of the "National Defence Association" will consider whether they would not more effectually accomplish their most desirable object by devoting their contributions to the building of these guns, and thus increasing the effective force of the Confederacy one hundred fold by the time they can get the keel of a gunboat laid. Remember, you must whip the enemy on land, and take your time to equal him on the water.
The ladies can earn this gun at S. W. Harwood's furniture Store.
