Mrs. B. Rouse
Enclosed please find the report of our society for the past year. We feel thankful that we have been able to contribute our mite to help alleviate the suffering of our sick and wounded soldiers, and would be glad if we could greatly increase our donations this coming year if they are needed for so long a time.
Miss Laura Woodford, Sec.
