respectfully beg leave to acknowledge, through the medium of your patriotic
journal, the reception of 763 excellent woolen shirts, the donation of the
Ladies' Central Relief Committee, No. 1 Bond street, and the Union Defence
Committee. To the generous ladies of the Relief Committee and those members of
the Defence Committee who patriotically and humanely aided us in securing this
very acceptable and timely contribution of shirts, so sorely needed by our
brave volunteers, we tender our earnest thanks and grateful acknowledgments.
Very respectfully, &c.,
Acting Lieutenant-Colonel Anderson Zouaves.

To the Editor of the New-York Times
You will confer an addtitional favor if you will
allow me to correct one error which inadvertantly occured in the card of thanks
published in your valuable journal of yesterday, concerning the shirts
presented to the Anderson Zouaves. One hundred and eighty of them were a
donation from the ladies of the All Souls Church, Dr BELLOWS, Pastor : and the
remainder (585) from the Union Defence Relief Committee, No. 1 Bond-street.
Mrs. J. F. WHIPPLE will please accept the thanks of the Regiment, for her
valuable donation of sixty-five Havelocks.
J. J. YATES,
Quartermaster Anderson Zouaves.
