Dear Madam             Washington,August 10, 1863.

I thank you very cordially for the beautifully-finished Cushion, received, through your courtesy, today. But grateful as I am, it must be your greatest satisfaction to reflect that the brave soldiers who reap the benefit of your compassionate kindness and liberality, are this day more grateful still. I am very truly Your Obt. Servt
