We take pleasure in publishing the appended communication.
The money enclosed has been placed in the hands of those entitled to receive it:
To the Editors of the Dispatch:
Enclosed you will find one hundred and thirty-five dollars ($135), contributed by ladies whose homes are now invaded by the enemy.
Be kind enough to hand the amount to the treasurer of the ‘"Ladies' Gunboat Association."’
We regret that our contribution is so small, but if it will call forth the latent
generosity of those who are out of danger,
we will be content.
