March 25, 1863 Issue of the WEEKLY STANDARD (Raleigh, North Carolina)
   Transcribed and Posted by Myrtle Bridges February 15, 2003

Mrs. Marshall, residing near Wadesboro', has given 25 bushels of meal for distribution among 
the families of soldiers. John S. Little, of Anson, has given a like quantity, and sells corn 
at $1 and meat at $.20, to the families of soldiers in his neighborhood. James Dunn, of the 
same county, has 150 bushels of corn to sell to soldiers' families at $1. In Smith's beat, in 
Anson, there is not a man who will charge the wife of a soldier more than $1 for corn. Well 
done for Anson! Fayetteville Observer
