Circulating libraries for our soldiers.
--Revs. J. W. Jones
. J. L. Johnson
, J. C. Hiden
, and T. J. McVeigh
, all chaplains of Virginia
regiments, are arranging to procure circulating libraries for their respective charges.
Several regiments have contributed $100 a piece to secure religious reading.
The libraries are furnished by the Colportage and Publication Society, located in this city.
While in winter quarters these books will be of vast service, doing good alike to the head and the heart.
We are glad to learn that the society in this city are preparing to supply quite a number of regiments.
Rev. Mr. Jones
is now here, and we are glad to learn from him that the 13th regiment, with which he is associated as Chaplain
is comfortably situated within a mile and half of Manassas
, and that he is much encouraged in his labors of love.
