Subscription List of Tiger Rifles to our brother soldier, companion, and friend, James P.

To our friend, James P. Burns, we, the undersigned, say that we deeply sympathize with him in his misfortune; we honor him for courage displayed, and will strive to emulate the example he has set us as a man and a soldier.
