Howitzer Library.

Feeling the urgent need of suitable reading matter to fill up the leisure moments of our soldiery, the object of this note is earnestly to solicit at the hands of all who feel an interest in our battalion the presentation of such books as they can conveniently spare, in order that we may form an attractive library.

Such works as "Hedley Vicars," the "Life of Gen. Havelock," "English Hearts and English Hands," and books of that character, would be peculiarly acceptable. We would also suggest, as belonging to a different class, the works of Washington Irving, Fennimore Cooper, and Walter Scott.

They can be left at Messrs. J. Woodhouse & Co.'s, Richmond, with the name of the giver written in each volume.

Thos. Ward White, Chaplain. June 18th, 1861.
