Contributions for the soldiers.
--I desire to acknowledge through your columns the receipt, from the hands of Miss Mary Taylor
of this city, of thirty-five pairs of socks from the Mt. Oliver Sewing Society
, and twenty-one flannel Shirts from Mrs. Lavina Taylor
, of Hanover county
, for the ‘"Harrison
State Guards."’ Co. ‘"C."’ 31st Regiment Virginia Volunteers, (Mrs. Taylor
upon the yarn, wove the flannel, and made the shirts herself.) They will be distributed in accordance with the request of the fair donors, and the recollection of the donation will contribute not less to the comfort of the gallant men, than the articles given.
If the men
of the Confederate States
will prove themselves worthy
of the ladies
who have contributed so much to our glorious cause, then, indeed, will we be unconquerable.
W. P. Cooper
