We understand that a letter of thanks has already been written to. the senders, which letter was heartily concurred in by each and every member of the Company; but we think that such a nice gift and sweet thought on the part of the young ladies, bountifully de serves to be heralded before the eyes of tbe public in terms of the highest praise. May they live long and happy. And, when this cruel war nas come to an end, may at least a part of UB be permitted to return to this beautiful little city and claim for ourselves an heljftneet who shall make our lives happy and our tents to dwell in the City of the Lord I We do not believe that there is a Company in the United States which received better treatment or more kindness at the hands ol the people at its home station tbau we of the Headquarters Com pany, and it is needless to say that our heartfelt appreciation has gone out for the good people of.Graham and they will evermore claim and hold a most teuder spot in our memories and hearts. To close this letter without a mention of the dear ladies of the Red Cross would be the grossest ingratitude known to man. It was they who met us upon our arrival on July 25, who provided us the excellent clubroom with all its accommodations, who arranged endless entertainmeut aud merri ment for us during our eutire stay in the city, and who, finally, upon Our departure, gave us the God speed which only a good woman knows how to do.

When 1 was a little girl in 1861, the Indies AiJ of uraham, ol Which »la was presi dent and Mrs. L,ug Scott (the late Mrs. J. L. Scott, mother of Miss IDA andC'has. A. Scott) was treas urer, Ma used to send Ida (Miss Ida Scott) and myself arounu tuwa to tell all the members tne time'and place of meeting. 1 was so mucn the older that I was to do the talking and Ida to keep me company, i rtraem.ier so wsu how we usea to go from house to house bearing messages. Sue was so tiny I expect she has forgotten it. Well, among other good work pianneu, was making uothes for the sol diers, 'The Regulators, Uncle 800 Noell (the late K. A. Noell, who was a tailor) cut the clothe* and rel atives and Mends of tne soldiers made them. Some of the under clothes were cut Out on Urandma s old mahogany dining table. 1 dis tinctly remember that Aunt Km. (the late Mrs. J. W. Harden, mother of C. P. and W.

Scott and Mrs. Corinna Hunter), Miss Pattie Ruf fin and Misses Wylie, were among the workers. The garments were all distributed from our old home (tne residence now occupied by a niece of the writer, Mrs. J. J. Hen derson) When the relatives came to get the clothes, everybody had someone to worU for them except Will or Bill Ward. Ma said: 'All my kin folks and those /T~ love have some one else to do for them, so I will work for Bill Ward. Ann, you can finish his socks." I was a splendid knitter, but, my, what feet he had! 1 thought I'd never get them long enougli, but patient perseverance accomplishes mu h, and when 1 saw those two pairs of warm woolen socks ready to go In the boxes packed on our front porch, 1 felt that I was indeed I helping the cause. When I saw In The Gleaner the name of Wil liam Ward among those drafted from Alamance my mind reverted to the long ago. This William Ward may be rich and influential and not need my help, but 1 do wish X might, in my old age, do some little mite for the Alamance boys? Can't I make some little article to help? 1 know you will think 1 am In my dotage, 1 sup pose I am, but I hope I will always want to help in any merit orious cause." Southwest Alamance.
