Believing you to be a friend to thsoldier, I trut you will insert the following good suggestion in your valuable paper, viz: that every family senel to their son, husband or father, as the cise may be, a box of provisions. The rations in the army are short, and witheut aid from some? quarter, the consequences are a want of food. Allow rne ta suggesr, alo, what is proper to send : that is, what a solelier mostly needs. A box should contain bacon, (hara or side.) peas, butter, dried fruvt and syrup in quantities to suit the conveni ence of the shipper. Many ejther luxuries', under 'which the borne tables geoan, might be packed in, but the articles enumerated will be most u-?1-ful 4o the hungry soldier. Surely every faualy can do this.
