I arrived here two days ago, well, hearty, and in good spirits, having made the most delightful voyage from New Orleans I ever made; not at all sea-sick, pleasant company, cool breezes, and good fare.

The second is from Surgeon Pineo, one of the most accomplished officers of his department, who was under me, while I had command of the First Corps, as medical director. He asked me to recommend him for promotion, which I did, and his letter in reply shows what some officers think of me. The other is from Hon. William Wilkins, formerly judge in Pennsylvania, Senator and Secretary of War. He desires a favor for his grandson, but he is pleased to say I am powerful and in favor, hence his letter indicates in some measure public opinion in regard to me. I send them because, knowing how much you think of me, I know it will gratify you to know that others have a favorable opinion. This may be vanity, but I deem it pardonable in writing to one's wife.

It was also voted that the new organization should work under the auspices of the Mission Circle. Mrs. Haven, who has been in charge since the beginning, has had several earnest and faithful helpers at various times during the twenty years, among them being Mrs. H. Williams, Mrs. Arthur W. Glines, Mrs. William Wilkins, Mrs. J. F. Mills, Mrs. R. Y. Gifford, Miss Alice Nickerson, and Miss Abbie Southworth. Since 1888 these young misses have raised and contributed about $1,000 to the church, and to other parish and denominational interests nearly $300 more. At every fair they have had a table. They have gone into the houses of the poor and given food and clothing, and gladdened homes with well-laden Christmas trees.
