Company K, 47th Ill.

We have lately been placed under obligations to the brave boys of Co. K, 47th Ill., Capt. J. M. Brown, for a splendid silver Tuba, the instrument we used while with the regiment in the service of the U. S. It is a magnificent present, and we shall always feel proud of the gift and thankful to the donors. We do not believe there is a more generous and patriotic company of men in the whole army, and they have proved to us by their brave conduct in the recent battles of Iuka and Corinth that they are mad of the right kind of fighting material.
