Dr. Bass in his morning sermon took the same text he did last Sunday, in the first sermon he discussed Lot's temption, and on yesterday the result of Lot's choice.

The letter contained all the news not only of the neighbor hood, but items of general in- terest of the state. It was only through such letters or communi cations that the soldiers learned of the doings at home, hence it was sought to convey to him every item of news that would be of interest to him.
