Bellville Countryman (Texas), November 8, 1862
There is great cry made all the time for clothing for the soldiers. Why don’t those in authority take some measures to provide cards for the people, and then it will not be difficult to manufacture the clothing. If our county court would take some action to procure cards for the county, they would enable many a family to provide for its own support. Cards are what are wanted. A wagon load bro’t from Matamoras would well supply the county.
