My Dear Mrs. Coben:

of this league. It Is to encourage and
aid in the organization of local relief
associations throughout the stnto end
to urge that they eo-eoorate with the
state organization,as it I i i.n close touch
with the surgeon general, who knows
best where help is needed. So much
for the general state plan.
1. The local associallons may send
their funds to the treasurer of the state
organizations, Mrs. Thomas H. Morgan,
No. 783 Peachtree street, Atlanta, Ga.,
to be transmitted through the national
organization for use in the general
army hospitals, for we honor every sol
dier who is defending our flag on land
2. The local associations may se.nd
their funds to the treasurer of the state
organization to augment the state
emergency fund which will he used for
the comfort and health of the Georgia
volunteers in the regimental hospitals
before they go to the front.
3. The local associations may send
their funds to the treasurer of the state
organization. to be devoted to those
families of Georgia soldiers and sail
'd s which may be in need of aid.
The privilege is given each local as
sociation to specify which one of the
three purposes they desire their funds
to be used for: or. they may leave it
to the discretion of the state organiza
tion to expend it where it is most need
ed iti the alleviation of suffering.

"Gentlemen of the jury, the law of

you in these cases, but this Is such an
Imporlant case that I feel called on to
