    June 12, 1861

    Captain Goodwin.


    I am informed
    that the volunteers from
    Stockbridge, all belong to
    your company [Company K of the 2nd Regiment Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry] ; I have there-
    fore taken the liberty of
    addressing to you, (Care of
    Mr Abbott) a box, containing
    clothing for them, which I
    beg you to distribute. Each
    parcel is directed, and upon
    the top of the box is a
    towel for each man. The
    materials for these garments
    were furnished by our town,
    and the ladies did the

    the sewing. Will you be so
    kind as to inform the men,
    whence this contribution comes,
    and say to them; that the
    ladies of Stockbridge feel
    an earnest interest in
    their welfare; and will
    always gladly do any
    thing in their power to
    promote their comfort, and
    aid them in performing
    faithfully the duties they
    have undertaken in their
    country's service. May
    God bless you all.
    June 12th 1861.

    Yrs Respectfully
    Jeanie Pomeroy.
