This Day in Dayton, 4 November

On November 5, 1861, the Courier published an acknowledgment by Capt. James Kirkpatrick of the 40th Co. A of receipt of “an ample supply of elegant pincushions, needles, thread &c.” from Mrs. C. M. and Miss M. M. Favorite. The daughter-in-law and daughter of Samuel Favorite had dispensed the gifts through their uncle, George Warwick, Esq., of Lafayette. The committees appointed in October were successful, for on November 23 the Courier printed another acknowledgment by Kirkpatrick of receipt of supplies, this time “socks, shirts, drawers, blankets &c.” from Sheffield, Wea and Lauramie township.
