I E. 0. GOODRICH, ESQ., — Dear Sir:
I The following extract from a letter of a lady of this place
I Row on a visit to the army of the Potomac, and one who
I " mos t admirably fitted to observe and judge correctly
I what falls und?r her notice, wilt show to your readers
I lr ' e valuable aid which our sick and wounded soldiers
I ave received Irom the " Ladies' Aid Societies," of the
I -'"fthern States. She writes under date of March 27th,
I TB6,i, from near Belleplain, Virginia. She writes :
I I have visited the Hospitals and tried to ascertain
I ,r feetly in regard to the utility of the " Aid Societies,"
■ *nd must say that to these and similar associations, all
I • e *wk are indebted for their comforts—l might almost

! cases and the feather pillows, slippers, bed, shirts,
I er, -' r 4Thingalmost aie procured front the same source.
| e Matron here has only to apply to the Sanitary De
* P'tsitory, and she is furnished with anything they have.
1 h 1C ou "'' Christian Association, have rooms
I ere . and some of them are always here and they are
J antiiing in their effnrts to do good—visiting and praying
I ln 4 reading to the sick, and they chiefly supply them
I *ith such delicacies as " concentrated milk," " corn
I *rch,' Ac., Ac- They have given the Matron a large
cooking stove, andscatyely ten minutes elapse that nurs
ei are not in for thickened milk, gruel, corn starch, Ac.,
for the sick."
Again, speaking of the sufferings which the sick un
derwent when Burnside made his last movement, she
says: "A young man of the Christian Association,
came through mud to the top of his boots with his bands
and arms and pockets filled, and leavipg them returned
and repeated the same until other aid from the Sam
tary chiefly was procupfd. I cannot tell you on paper of
the sufferings of Windmill point, dttriug that chill Janu
ary weather, but many an anxious Father and sorrowing
Mother, came there to look for loved ones who already
" slept the sleep which knows no wakening."
From tiie foregoing, it will be seen " what a great door
and effectual is opened" unto us to do good. Already
there have been many contributions ot stores sent in, in
reference to the appeal publi lied last week, out many
more are needed, and as fast as received will be duly sent
forward. A list of all articles sent in will be kept, with
the name of the contributor, aud we hope that the re
