To EDITORS AND PaIr:ns..-Severai
kood friends, in and out of the army, have
tendered a cordial approval at ' promile
of support, to a suggestion fo) a news
paper sheet or slp,, to be issued from
camp, and as nearly as possibio from
IHead(quarters or from the headquarters
of anydivision or brigade.
In the decay or suspension of the
Journals published before the war and.
from other considerations, it is believed
that a camp organ, edited with proper
de:retion anld reserve, And with the full
est independence, and containing official
orders and notices given by authority,
and general- news and imiscellanty, wotlIl
be acceptable alik' to our uiterrified
:awl mivincililo soldiers and their true
fienas at home.
