Army letters.

Mr. W. E. M. Word, Special Agent of the Post-Office Department, publishes a card, in which he suggests, for the benefit of the soldier and his friends that all letters sent to soldiers should be carefully addressed to the care of the regiment and company of which he is a member, and always hear the number of the regiment and name of the State to which it belongs. Attention to this suggestion, it is believed, will obviate one of the chief causes of the non- delivery of letters. It is also suggested that all letters sent to soldiers should be pre-paid before mailing, as in many instances this is neglected, and the letter fails to reach its destination. The following may answer as a form of address, in accordance with the Special Agent's directions: ‘"Private Jno. Jones, care of Company K, 47th Reg. Ga. Vols., Fredericksburg, Va."’
