To the Ladies of Orange County

I am requested by the Governor of your State to call upon you to furnish for the soldiers in the army woolen socks and blankets for their comfort and protection during the approaching winter.Each donor will please accompany her gift by her name.Shall this call upon your patriotism be made without a proper response on your part?I cannot believe that it will.I therefore call upon you to come forward with your gifts and lay them bountifully upon the altar of your country.Imitate the examples of your mothers of the revolution, and allow not the soldiers who have taken up arms in defence [sic] of your liberties, your lives, and what is still dearer, your honor, to go unprovided for;suffer not your defenders to be exposed unprotected to the winterís chilling blasts.Come, then, to their relief; furnish them with those necessary articles to relieve suffering humanity, and thereby merit the plaudits not only of the present, but of future generations.

I am your humble servant,

R. M. JONES, Sheriff

The following gentlemen will please receive and forward to me articles for the soldiers:

W.W. Allison, N. P. Hall, Adison Mangum, M. A. Angier, John W. Carr, and Alvis Durham
