Williansburg, Va., Sept. 1, 1861.
I wish to let you hear from this place.
We are at work, although you hear from us so seldom.
. J. B., of this place, at one time a resident of your city, has been wearing Virginia
homespun for dresses for some time.
She is of Northern birth, but of strong Southern feelings.
She was the first of this place to put on homespun and go to church with it on, instead of silk or lawn.
There are many more ready to follow her in this great work of freedom and right.
The ladies are at work making coats and pants for soldiers around here.
We have had a good many deaths here among the soldiers, but now we are quite well and strong, ready to fight the enemy at any time.
