What one noble woman can do.--Mrs. Eliza Gray Fisher
, a lady of Boston, Mass.
, past the age of threescore years, knowing from experience the necessities of the volunteer soldier, having lost a grandfather in the Revolutionary war, and a father in the war of 1812, determined, immediately upon the issue of the present call for volunteers, to provide a complete outfit of under clothing for an entire company.
This, notwithstanding the severe pressure of domestic duties, with the aid of several ladies in Rev. Dr. Dewey
's society, she has accomplished in the most satisfactory manner.
The articles are as follows, and are of the best materials and most thorough work-manship:--130 shirts, 130 pairs of drawers, 130 towels, 130 pocket-handkerchiefs
, 130 pairs of socks, 12 hospital gowns, 55 bags containing needles, pins, thread, &c., 65 Havelock
caps, 500 yards bandages.
Such women are of the true Revolutionary stock,--all honor to them.--Boston Transcript, May 27
