The Daily Dispatch: November 29, 1861., [Electronic resource], Cotton-protected gun-boats. (search)
Cotton-protected gun-boats. --The following communication, suggesting the building of cotton-protected gun-boats, we take from the Vicksburg Whig. The writer certainly makes a very liberal offer towards the furtherance of the enterprise: Washington, Nov. 19, 1861. Editor Whig--I am well convinced that steam war vessels for the Confederate States, to be used as gun-boats, to be protected by cotton bales, and for the protection of the valley of the Mississippi, can be successfully built, and will render wonderful service for our just cause. I propose to be one of fifty or twenty-five who will furnish one hundred bales of cotton at once for this purpose. I make this communication for your papers that others may at once unite and accomplish this desirable object. I will give the one hundred bales whenever an amount sufficient, in cotton or money, in subscribed to build or prepare one or more boats for the above purpose. Respectfully
