Aid for our Suffering Soldiers.
The Ladies of the “Soldiers Aid Society” of Greensboro and vicinity, gratefully acknowledge the receipt of $782.00 from their fellow citizens and refugees now among us. This sum together with large contributions of hospital supplies, we have devoted to the comfort of the thousands of our brave and honored men, who are now suffering from wounds received while defending the Capital of the Confederacy against the tyrannical aggressor. Our friends from the country have shown their true love for our Confederacy, and their warm sympathy for the suffering soldiers by their large contributions of hospital stores.
Not the least interesting and acceptable donation bestowed on our noble soldiers was $8.00 received from the “Juvenile Soldiers Aid Society” consisting of the following Misses: Chase Gilmer, Lizzie Lindsay, Alice Lindsay, Lizzie J. Evans, Rose Bilbro, Dolia Bilbro, Birta Sloan, Ella Donnel, Nanie Gillaspie, Josie Scott, Bella Balsley, Berta Thorburn, Augusta Latham, and Master Eugene Eckle.
Prof. Sterling, left on Wednesday the 9th, for Richmond and will attend in person to the distribution of these supplies.
