Another contribution.

Scarcely a day passes that we are not put in possession of some new evidence of patriotism, and determination to resist the march of the invader into our country. We have frequently acknowledged contributions to the gunboat fund, and we have this morning to record the following letter from a patriotic citizen of Albemarle:


Albemarle County,Near Strong Point, April 15, 1862.
Editors of the Dispatch:
I see there are responses for the building of an iron clad gunboat, and, thinking all should lend a helping hand for the protection of James river and our capital, you may put me down ten barrels of flour, if the Government will have it, or fifty dollars. The flour is ready when called for. I would like to know whether it will be acceptable. The gift is small, but my means are limited.

Yours, respectfully,
M. O. Douglass.
