The following is an extract from a letter received by R.A. Savage of Stowe, acknowledging the receipt of two boxes of clothing contributed in that town for the relief of the freedmen:

TYLER HOUSE, HAMPTON NEAR FORTRESS MONROE, December 19, 1863

.................. In the name and behalf of the many poor people who have been made recipients of your bounty, I heartily thank you, and all the good people of Stowe who contributed to fill those boxes and the Great and Holy One who moved upon you and them to do it. May the Lord reward you all a hundred fold. Unless we except Waterbury --- perhaps we should make no exception---- the boxes from Stowe were the most valuable of all sent to us yet. Everything was so good, so timely and suitable --- just what our poor people very much needed. Please tell the people how much we thank them and please say that more of the same sort, would be very acceptable. Ten times the amount of clothing and bedding we get, could be immediately disposed of where it would do very much good. If you have any more to send, direct as before to me, care of Wm. E. Whitney, 51 John St,. Letters to us may be directed to Fortress Monroe, Box 41. Money we have frequent occasion for, and can use to good advantage for the relief of our sick and suffering. Our field is a growing one. We have a world of work on our hands. May the Lord give us health, strength, wisdom, and grace equal to our labors and responsibilities. Pray For Us.

In haste, your brother,

James P. Stone

Death of James P. Stone

James Palmer Stone, who died of heart failure, September 5, at his home in Ripon Wis., was at one time a resident of this city, and married Miss Ruby A. Church, who is a sister of Mrs. A. J. Lang, of Congress St.

He was born in Cabot, September 13, 1836, and was a son of the Rev. Levi Huntoon Stone. Three of his uncles also, out of a family of ten, became Congregational ministers. The Rev. Levi H. Stone held several Vermont parishes besides that of his native town, Cabot, became chaplain of the First Vermont regiment in the Civil War, and was one term chaplain of the Vermont senate. Mr. and Mrs. Church (sic) had two children, James L. and Harriet E., both born in this city.

At the opening of the Civil War, Mr. Stone enlisted as band master in the Second Vermont regiment, of which his brother, Lauriston, was quartermaster. Both brothers were captured and experienced the horrors of Belle Isle and Andersonville. Mr. Stone was promoted to be second lieutenant of CO. I, in December, 1861. Some thirty years ago Mr. Stone went to live in Ripton, where he engaged in insurance business. In earlier years he and Mrs. Stone united with the Methodist church in this city, and later he was affiliated with the Ripon Congregational church, whose choir leader he had been for a long period.
