Fort Gaines, Dec 27, 1862
To the Ladies and Citizens of Fort Gaines and Clay County:

The undersigned, Captain of the Fort Gaines Guards, Company D, 9th Ga.Regiment, begs leave in behalf of the company, to return his sincere thanks to his fellow citizens of Fort Gaines and Clay County, for their generous donations in aiding the outfit of his Company for the campaign in which they are engaged. We thank you kindly, and appreciate your munificence. You may rest assured that we will do all in our power to remunerate you by way of defending you, your homes, your firesides, and bequeathing to you a home of liberty, that may be enjoyed in after ages.We feel more than thankful to you for your generosity in keeping the families of our brave fellows who have gone to the war, supplied with food and raiment. We cannot feel too grateful,- tis a grand spectacle to see the outpourings of the benevolent portion of our citizens, and how gratifying it is to the hearts of our brave volunteers, to know that while they are far from home, their dear wives and children are protected and cared for. It gives them redoubled energy, and whether in camp, or amid the din of battle, their souls will stir up within them full of the holy patriotism for which they have gone forth to battle. I feel it an indispensable duty for me to express the gratefulness felt by the company towards those ladies who have taken so much interest in the welfare of the Guards since we left you for the war, but how can we repay you, in words of kindness and commendation? We cannot. However we sincerely hope that in the future Heaven and Fortune may smile upon you, and reward you for your noble generous hearts.

Jno. S. Webb, Capt.,
Co. D, 9 Ga. Regt.
