The following letters, selected from a large number received, coming from representative men of opposite sides well express the feeling with which this great enterprize is being prosecuted.
From General U. S. Grant. New York, May 7, 1884. Peyton Wise, Esq., Chairman, &c.:
Dear Sir,—I am in receipt of the formal invitation to be present at the opening of the Fair for the home of disabled Confederate soldiers on the 14th of this month, and your kind letter accompanying it.

We have been at some pains to compile an accurate list of surviving Confederate generals with their present residence, and we give it below.
There may be a few omissions or ina
