donations for the sick and wounded.
Ladies' Depository for the Sick, Culpeper C. H., Va., Aug. 7, 1861.
In answer to many letters received, asking of the safe arrival of donations, the managers take this mode of publicly acknowledging the receipt of every package at their depository, of which they have notice of shipment, with the exception of one from Columbus, Ga.
, and one from Yazoo City, Miss.
, which, up to this date, have not come to hand.
Acknowledgements are intended to be mailed to donors immediately upon receipt of the package, but many of them, it seems, fail to reach their destination.
The managers and ladies connected with the department take pleasure in saying, the very liberal donations sent have enabled them to extend very efficient ‘"aid and comfort"’ to the wounded and sick soldiers in our hospitals and families, which otherwise they could not have obtained.--New and second-hand drawers and socks are very much wanted; and donors sending wines, liquors, preserves, &c., are most respectfully asked, if possible, to pack them in a separate box, as they not unfrequently break and soil the contents of the package in which they are placed.
Box from Hanover
and one from Danville
Cannot some friend sends us some tar and rosin for burning in the hospitals?
