This plan of Relief for the sick & wounded soldiers was put in operation soon after the battle of Manassas & up to this time has been confined to our state. Our supplies however have been freely shared by all. Lately a move has been made & the same system is now in operation for Georgia, Alabama & Louisiana. After a whi1e each state will probably adopt the same; & our soldiers will then be amply provided for by their friends at home. So should it be. Let not our brave men who have sacrificed the care & comforts of home, want these necessaries of life, in addition to the perils of war. 
William & Ellen expect to leave us today for upper Georgia & the Montvale springs.
