Notes
Content: Printed on border: "It is only those who had relatives in camp that could tell the feverish anxiety of the troops to hear from those they had left at home. …need hardly describe a scene which so thoroughly explains itself. The name of Adams Express was a household one, both to the donor and rece …good things sent to the absent soldier."
