[for the Richmond Dispatch.]

Richmond, July 24, 1861.
To the Editors of the Dispatch:
Two highly respectable ladies have just been at my house, whose husband and son are fighting for our liberties, who were their support in more peaceable times. They have families of small children to feed and clothe, and find it very difficult to obtain work, owing to the very large amount done (for pay) by persons in very good circumstances. In some instances, large quantities are taken into the country for servants to work upon. If you can; by cautioning or advising those who have work done to ascertain if those whom they employ are needy, you will be doing a praiseworthy act.
