From an officer in Gen. Kershaw
's Brigade we have received a copy of the New York Herald
, dated June 16th. We are deeply indebted to this courteous officer.
whoever he may be, and hope that he will again remember us in a similar manner.
We hear that nearly every day Northern papers are obtained by some of the regiments along the Chickahominy
, and that they are often thrown about the camp and finally destroyed.
Our army friends could not confer a greater favor upon this office than by sending us such late papers as they may receive.
Even old papers are oftentimes of values for they may contain items of great interest to some of our many readers.
