home enough clothing, shioes
and supplies of all kinds, such
as could not be produced on the
farm, to last five years. She re
members him buying a car-load
of salt, for which his brothers
laughed at him. Her father re
plied that our Southern ports
would be blockaded and he esti
mated it would take some five
years for the North to conquer
the South, so he did not intend
his family to suffer. Mrs. Hen
dricks said they had plenty of
new anid nice clothing, and all
manneri of household supplies
during the enftre time of war;
they had sure-enough coffee, etc.
