Sugar will be furnished by James Sloan, Esq., to the ladies of Greensboro and vicinity, for the purpose of making Blackberry Wine and Cordial for the use of the sick and wounded in our Hospitals.
There is no one article more needed by our suffering soldiers; and perhaps none can be furnished that will do more to restore our brave men to health, and counteract many of the diseases incident to camp life.
Donations of Blackberries and Dewberries are earnestly solicited from our country friends who are willing to aid in this labor of love.
Donations can be left with Jas. Sloan, Esq., or C. G. Yates.
