THE FAIE MOVEMENT IN THE LOYAL STATES.—Ho. S. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 13 June 1864
THE FAIE MOVEMENT IN THE LOYAL STATES.—Ho. S. THE BOSTON FAIR.—[Another Account. ' ] V. S. SANITARY COMMISSION. ") N. E. WOMEN'S AUXILIARY ASSOCIATION. >• No. 18 West Street, Boston, June 7, '64. J C. J. STIHB , ESQ.—Dear Sir: In reply to Mr. BLATCHFORD'S statement to me, of your plan for a history which should embody that of all the Sanitary Fairs, I told him, that respecting ours in Boston, there is very little to be said, but that little I should be happy to say. My time is so fully occupied that I have been unable to write earlier, and I shall beg the favor of you, that my name shall not be mentioned in connection with the few items I may communicate. The Fair originated, and was carried forward in our quiet, staid, New England way, being entirely simple in its organization, and almost noiseless in preparation. At a meeting of the Finance Committee of the New England Women's Auxiliary Association, on the 11th of May, 1863, the Fair was suggested, not as the best, ...

A LETTEE FBOM TOBIAS SMOLLETT. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 13 June 1864
A LETTEE FBOM TOBIAS SMOLLETT. [NEVER BEFORE PUBLISHED.] About a century ago, Mr. RICHARD SMITH, a Recorder of the city of Burlington, New Jersey, addressed to TOBIAS SMOLLETT, the novelist, a letter, putting divers rather close and personal questions, which were most courteously answered. We now print for the first time this correspondence; for a copy of which we are indebted to our fellow-townsman, FERDINAND J. DUEER, Esq., whose private collection of autographs has, through his liberality, contributed so largely to the Great Central Fair. A few defects in the original MS. have been observed in the printed copy. RICHARD SMITH TO TOBIAS SMOLLETT. Sir:—You will pardon the Curiosity of a Man distant from you many Thousand Miles—who will however take it as a very particular Favor to have that Curiosity satisfied by a note from you sent by the first Opporty either via Philada or New York.—The Writer of this Letter as well ns many of his Acquaintances has been often delighted wi...
RECOLLECTIONS OF THE METBOPOLITAH FAIR.-NO. 3. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 13 June 1864
RECOLLECTIONS OF THE METBOPOLITAH FAIR.-NO. 3. BY A WOUNDED SOLDIER. It was deemed fit that the Fair should bear the honored name of JOHN A. Dix as its President. Absented in his military duties, he was not able to attend personally to its details, but we all felt that it succeeded better for having the name of that unblemished statesman and distinguished patriot at the fore. Then, it was very fitting that in the chairman we should have a name so commercially and socially distinguished as that of General GRISWOLD GREY. Uniting in himself two of the most respected families of New York and Boston, it was very proper that Mr GREY should take a prominent lead in this national and New York enterprise. The zeal, patience and ability which he displayed throughout its progress, entitle him to a distinguished place in the history of the Fair, and to the gratitude of the Sanitary Commission. The distinguished literary qualifications of the Secretary, Mr. RICHARD GRANT WHITE, a name ho...

DYING 15 THE HOSPITAL [Written for Our Dally Fare. BY ELLEN MURRAY. " It well may be," he said, "That wide though all my breezy North, Tho buds of roses hasten forth, Tho robins sing their sweetest tuno To welcome in tho month of June; But, redder than tho reddest rose, For me my country's banner glows. " I am content," ho said, " My father reads tho news to-night, Saying,' My child was in tho light.' My mother spreads the evening cheer, And murmurs,' Were my boy but hero!' For me tho fight its worst has done; Strange hands, my mother, nurso thy son " 'Tis tho Fair day," he said, " A stir is in tho crowded street, Amid the trees tho thousands meet; A thought of those who bleed and dio Fills every heart, dims every eye; For me, it is enough to know Kind nurses post my bedside go. " I am most blessed," ho said, " Some of our men, beneath tho sun, Dio slowly on tho field they won, Sonio in tho foemen's prison pine Longing for Northern breeze and shine; For me, my own true lan...

THE LILT OF LOCH-INE. [Written for Our Dally Fare. BY THOMAS BAILY ALDRICH I SHE was very, very fair, Like a Saint in her blonde hair—Like Raphael's Madonna, With a certain shade of care, And a clory breaking on her! II In tho Kirkyard lot hor lie, Let the thistles and the burrs Cover up tho two-fold life, Tho sinless life, and her's. God a'mercy on that day When tho grave gives up tho Dead And tho World shall pass away! Ill Now Sir Rohan sails tho sea, Loud ho laughs above his wine, And ho never, never thinks Of tho Lily of Loch-Ino. God a'morcy on that day When tho grave gives up the dead, And tho World shall pass away!
THE FAB.REACHING INFLUENCE OF THE SANITARY COMMISSION. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 13 June 1864
THE FAB.REACHING INFLUENCE OF THE SANITARY COMMISSION. TTIGHLY as we are all coming to appreciate -*"^ the work done by this noble organization, but few of us have yet thought out to their remote results either its present influences upon our soldiers and our armies, or those more enduring effects it is certain to leave upon our national character after its active operations shall have come to a close. Some of these are so forcibly presented in the following contribution, written for Our Daily Fair by Mr. J. T. HEADLY, from his home at Cedar Lawn, on the Hudson, that we take the liberty of adopting them for the editorial page. We may, in this connection, state that MR. HEADLY has manifested a great interest in ourpresentCentral Fair, and done much to aid it by many happy suggestions. The greatest blessings to the human race are not always the direct result of the actions that really, under God, produced them. While seeking a good, seemingly to us immeasurably great, we secure ...
THE MODEL POST-OFFICE. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 13 June 1864
THE MODEL POST-OFFICE. There is nothing more unjust than the favoritism that is usually exercised at Post-offices. In despotic countries it may do very well to make arbitrary distinctions among individuals, but it is certainly intolerable in a republic, that one man should receive a letter when he asks for it, and another should be refused. Post-offices are supported out of the common funds, for the common benefit, and yet it is within the experience of every one, that some persons are turned off without the scratch of a pen, while others receive as many, if not more, letters than they want. It seems not to arise from prejudice against individuals, but to be the result of mere caprice. We, ourselves, have often been told there were no letters for us, when we were really anxious to receive one, and at other times, oftenest on the first days of January and July, we have received quantities of wretched epistles in those horrid yellow envelopes, which we felt not the slightest des...
SOMETHING TO THINK OVER. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 13 June 1864
SOMETHING TO THINK OVER. If the numerous Sanitary Fairs which have been held in many cities had not contributed one dollar to the object for which they were legitimately destined, they would still have been of incalculable profit to the country, owing to the degree to which they have stimulated domestic exchanges, or buying and selling in every form; possibly averting a panic, and certainly keeping our minds from much needlessly gloomy thought.
SANITARILY [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 13 June 1864
SANITARILY I saw my wife, three days have past, With two large bundles hurry fast—the beauty, To catch a car for Logan Square; She cried, while hastening to the Fair—"Duty!" Sanitarily. No better wife e'er rode or walked, No better woman ever talked,—she's bright; Her nose is straight, her eyes are gray, And when she speaks you'll hear her say—" All right 1" Sanitarily. She left her dinner and her tea, She left her lovely children, three—[yell now!] And with those bundles started off, Apologizing wilh a—cough—"Well now!" Sanitarily. I cried out " Mary! you look here, Where is tile cellar-key for beer?"—and so on, She shouted back in accents clear. So that the words ring in my ear, "Go on!" Sanitarily "Oh, don't go, ma," her youngest squalled; "Oh, stay at home," tho eldest bawled—shut up I One look she gave, but on" she went, This answer all she backward sent—" I in going up." Sanitarily. *' Look out for worms from lofty trees; Take care of draughts, or else you'll sneeze—...

HOW THE SANITARY IS WORKING IN THE FIELD. [From our Correspondent with the Army of the Potomac] S TEAMER "G UY ," P OTOMAC R IVER , \ June 1, 1864. f To the Editor of the Daily Fare: The little side-wheel steamer, on whose deck I now write, as we are moving slowly toward the Bay, bears upon her bow-staff a flag on which is inscribed " U. S. Sanitary Commission." She measures one hundred and fifty tons burden, and is heavily freighted with stores for the sick and wounded of the Army of the Potomac. The store-rooms at Washington have furnished the cargo, and without detailing the articles severally, I will give the number of pieces, under several heads as follows : ' 1.

THE FAIB MOVEMENT IN THE LOYAL STATES.—No. 6. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 14 June 1864
THE FAIB MOVEMENT IN THE LOYAL STATES.—No. 6. THE BROOKLYN AND LONG ISLAND FAIB. fTlHE Brooklyn and Long Island Fair was the -*- creation jointly of the " War Fund Committee of Brooklyn and County of Kings," now consisting of one hundred and thirty of its prominent active citizens, acting through its Sanitary Committee, or "Committee on the United States Sanitary Commission and Hospitals;" and of the "Woman's Relief Association of the City of Brooklyn," recognized by the Commission as its " Brooklyn Auxiliary," to which the Sanitary Committee of the War Fund is advisory, without whose concurrence none of its measures can be carried into effect. Early in October the plan of a great Fair for the city was suggested by Mr. JAMES H. FBOTHINQHAM, of the Committee, and he and the Chairman, Mr. DWIOTIT JOHNSON, conferred with the President of the Sanitary Commission, Dr. BELLOWS, and corresponded with friends in Boston, where great Fairs had been held with eminent success, on the best...

And such scenes as this I witnessed constantly during the four days and nights I remained there. " The agents and employees of the Commission rendered most efficient and faithful service the whole time. "I saw the same thing again at the battle of Fredericksburg. The Commission was there again, long ahead of the Government, with all their plenteous bounty, bestowing it with a liberal hand on all who needed it. "Again at...

A VERMIFUGITIVE SKETCH. [Newspaper Article] — Our Daily Fare — 14 June 1864
A VERMIFUGITIVE SKETCH. " All mortals are worms of the dust—i. e., ver-men." MB. EDITOR :—As I sauntered leisurely over the Fair, and marvelled at the evolving of today's creation out of yesterday's chaos, my foot touched something, the like of which you have possibly seen before, viz: a MS. I raised it; I examined it; I sequestrated it; and, although it purports to be eminently private and confidential, I instantly devoted it to print for the following reasons : 1st. It was in the Fair. 2d. It is on the Fair. 3d. All is Fair in love. 4th. The writer is in love. 5th. He is, therefore, Fair game. 6th, and lastly. The matter of which it treats is already, to a conspicuous degree, the property of the Fair. Yours, respectfully, E. S. RANDOLPH. DEAR THOMAS :—You write to express your sympathy with us of the "Central" on the subject of Worms. It is superfluous. The prevailing idea that the playful and curious little creatures, which suspend their myriad silken threads from roof, t...
