Surplus rations for the poor.
--The writer to-day received a message from an officer that if he would send out a wagon to his camp he would send in a considerable quantity of surplus supplies for distribution among the poor.
For various reasons the offer could not be met; but it occurs to me that if any officer, on sending wagons to town, would put these surplus provisions on them, very excellent disposition might be made of them.
The writer, for his association, represents some 500 families of the poor, and any supplies left at the store of Glazebrook
, on Brook avenue, or at Spotts
's, next door to the C. S. Commissaries
, on 14th st, would be thankfully received and speedily distributed.
