“the Hood Orphan fund” is gradually increasing, but ought to be vigorously pushed now. He bequeathed them to the care of his old brigade, but comrades of the Army of Northern Virginia, whose fame he did so much to win, and of the Army of the Tennessee, whose annals his gallantry illustrated, Confederates generally, whose cause he served so faithfully, and lovers of patriotic devotion to duty everywhere, should esteem it a sacred privilege to see that these helpless orphans are not only placed beyond the fear of want, but that they are properly educated and provided for. Funds intended for this noble object should be sent to the committee in New Orleans, who have charge of the matter, but if it will be any convenience to contributors, it would be to us a “labor of love” to receive and forward their donations.
