SIR:  It gives me great pleasure to acknowledge [illegible] with the receipt of an issue of vegetables for my command, contributed by the Sanitary Commission.

My command is already indebted to you for several issues of vegetables and anti-scorbutics, and I cannot let this opportunity pass without expressing my sincere thanks and appreciation of the value of the services which your Commission has so generously rendered.

I am, sir, very respectfully,

A. E. BURNSIDE, Major General.


NEAR PETERSBURG, VA., July 2, 1864.


SIR:  As surgeons and chaplains of the 9th Army Corps, it gives us great pleasure to acknowledge to you and to the many friends of the Sanitary Commission our great indebtedness to this Commission, during the present campaign, for the supply of numerous articles so essential to the comfort of the sick and wounded, demonstrating the exceeding value of this charity.

It affords us unqualified pleasure to bear testimony to the energy and faithfulness of your agent, Dr. N. C. Stevens, in dispensing the stores committed to his trust.

Especially do we commend his judgment in the distribution of large quantities of anti-scorbutics to the men in the trenches, where the utility of such material is established in the prevention of sickness and the regulation of the system, rendering their recovery, when wounded, more probable and speedy.  We trust that the Commission will continue its work in this direction so favorably begun.

Most respectfully yours,
