the loyal women of America,
whose patriotic contributions, toils and sacrifices, enabled their
sisters, whose history is here recorded, to minister
relief and consolation to our wounded
and suffering heroes;
and who by their devotion, their labors, and their patient endurance
of privation and distress of body and spirit, when called
to give up their beloved ones for the
nation's defense,
have won for themselves eternal honor, and the undying
remembrance of the patriots of all time,
we dedicate this
volume. [10]
