Acknowledgment to the Ladies.

Camp Law, near Dumfries, Va., Headquarters 4th Ala. Reg't, November 28th, 1861.
At a meeting of the ‘"Canebrake Rifle Guards,"’ of the 4th Alabama Regiment, held this day, for the purpose of returning their thanks to the ladies in the vicinity of Locust Dale, Madison county, Va., for making up their summer uniform, and for the kindness and attention shown by them to the sick and wounded members of the company Lieut. Jones offered the following resolutions, which were unanimously adopted:

  1. 1st. We hereby return our obligations to the ladies of Locust Dale and vicinity for their uniform kindness to our company, and though they are friends we have never seen, we have learned to admire them as faultless types of heroine patriots, in whose eyes every Southern soldier is a friend, and at whose houses every sick and wounded soldier can find a home.
  2. 2d. Resolved, That the ladies of Locust Dale and its vicinity have endeared themselves to us by acts of kindness, the remembrance of which will survive the war, and in bonds of friendship which we hope will ever characterize the relations between the beauty of Virginia and the chivalry of Alabama.
  3. 3d. Resolved. That the papers in Richmond are hereby politely requested to publish these resolutions.
