1,000 Hymn Books

[28 June 1861]

 

The Young Men's Christian Association and the Anderson Zouaves.

 

A delegation of the Young Men's Christian Association visited the Anderson Zouaves at Saultersville and were present at the enthusiastic reception of Col. Riker on his return from Washington. They were very cordially received, and the promised donation of 1000 hymn books met a thankful acknowledgement. Remarks were made on the objects of the Association, and prayer was offered by one of their number.
