--A letter from Charles City county, Va.
, dated July 5th thus notices the patriotic zeal of the ladies in the noble cause of the South
The ladies of this county assembled yesterday at our Court-House, to prepare clothing and necessaries for the soldiers at Jamestown
, and there was a large attendance.
To their praise, be it said, they have on every occasion been ready to do all in their power to promote the comfort of our soldiers and cheer them on to deeds of heroism.
Their smiles will reward them for their efforts to expel the murderous crew from the soil of Virginia
There is a lady in our county whose four sons (manly and brave) are now in service, reaping for themselves and her a rich harvest of glory.
Without a single white male on her farm, her crops of grain look flourishing, and, as I learn, her large family of servants are all clothed from her own loom.
I am almost tempted to give you her name.
She deserves honor.
