Friday, February 27, 1863

Packed soldiers box.  Found that there was enough canned & dried fruit, socks, &c. to fill three boxes which we accordingly filled & directed to the Sanitary Commission at Cincinnati & George put them upon the train.

Peggy's comments:
The Sanitary Commission formed shortly after the beginning of the Civil War.   The purpose was to improve conditions in hospitals and on the field for U. S. soldiers.
