ZARVONA ZOUAVES. – My heart has been made glad – four little girls' contribution to the Zarvona Zouaves. Their names are Farnie W. Parker, Sue J. Taliaferro, Sue B. Sutton, and Ida D. Evans. This offering has left a daguerreotype upon the tablet of memory, whose ensmelling and gliding to protect from rust and tarnish shall ever be the readiest dictates of the heart. Girls, I thank you earnestly. You shall hear of the Zouaves doing their duty cheerfully.
