To Help the 1st U. S. Volunteer Cavalry.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The following letter has been received at the CRIMSON office from a Harvard graduate asking for subscriptions to aid in the complete equipment of the 1st U. S. Volunteer Cavalry:

To the Editors of the Crimson:

SIRS:- After two weeks letter writing and telegraphing we have found out that the 1st U. S. Vol. Cavalry have been sent to the front without hammocks or mosquito netting. The Massachusetts Vol. Aid Association will furnish these to the Massachusetts troops, but cannot go outside their state organizations. As there are many Harvard men in the "rough riders" it may be possible to get some contributions from Harvard men. Those desiring to assist may send any funds, no matter how small, to the subscriber. It will be necessary to raise $600, and it must be evident to any one that all the regiment must be equipped and not here and there a man.

Yours truly,

WILLIAM TUDOR, Harvard '71.June 17, '98.
