MONEY CAME IN EANDY.
Contribution of Mr. Browning to Coni
pany D Used in the Purchase of Ra
The Advertiser has received the fol
lowing letter from Capt. Arthur Lee,
of the Traynhamn Guards. in regard to
the contribution of $10.00 made to the
Lcompany fund some time ago by l ion.
Geo. A. Browning, Jr.,.of Goldvillo:
.Camp Sevier, Greenville, S. C.
IDec. 3, 1917.
h'ditor of The Advertiser:
Your letter contaiinipg the check for
$10.00 contributed to the Traynham
G'uards by -Mr. George .Browning of
Goldville, has been received. The
money was a n'ost welcome addition
to our slim company fund. Uncle &Em
is very liberal with his allowance for
food but the savings account from this
source must be devoted entirely to
food purchases and we have at pres
ent no means of 'buying the little odds
land ends that help so much to make
the messhall have a slight resem
blance to home.
Some one of the members of the
company 'took up a collection of dime s
and nickels yesterday to buy some
pans and pots for each squad and to
this fund I added the ten dollars. Af
ter these are bought most of the men
can march into the mess-hall and sit
right down to meals without having to
stand in line outside in the cold wait
ing his turn in the "soup-line". It
takes about thirty minutes for the line
of over two hunderd men to march by
and have their allowance of soup,
beef, bread, hominy and molasses, (if
we have molasses) flung into one mess
pan. This makes a delicious mixture,
as they say in the cook books, but it
always happens that the one ingredi
ent that you dislike most is always
the ruling force therein. With the
squad pans in action, the food is on
the table when the men arrive and
thei'e is some chance of keeping the
soup and molasses from getting too
If Mr. Browning could have stood in
line for his meal just one time during
one of the cold days we have had, he
would know better than I could ever
tell just how much joy and comfort
his contribution has helped add to the
daily life of the men. And in conclu
sion, allow me to thank him through
you for every single member of the
company and to assure him that his
kindness will be in our memory al
