Testaments and tracts for soldiers.
--Much good may be done in the progress of the present campaign by clergymen, as well as others who feel disposed to aid in the distribution of religious literature among the soldiers.
Indeed, much has already been done in this respect, as the subjoined communication will show.
There are many thousand men in camp and field who would be grateful for the bestowal even of a small tract; and by thus causing a general circulation from one to another the light of religious truth may penetrate minds hitherto oblivious.
Rev. A. E. Dickinson
, General Superintendent
of the Baptist Colportage Board in Virginia
, writes to us as follows:
"The Baptist Colportage Board, located in this city, has published upwards of seven hundred thousand pages
of religious tracts addressed to-soldiers, and have arranged for the publication of twelve thousand pocket Testaments,
two thousand of which we expect to receive next week.
We have colporteurs at various encampments within the State
who are laboring, with very great success.
Besides this, we propose to supply chaplains, and all persons who may desire to do good by distributing religious tracts.
We shall be glad to have the names of such as may desire to aid in this most important work."
