The Soldier's Friend

This little book, written by the Rev. John W. Dulles, was published in 1861 in Philadelphia by the Presbyterian Publication Committee. It consists of daily Scriptural quotations, inspirational readings, a selection of Psalms and hymns. In the back are eighteen "Hints for Preserving Health". A pencilled message on the front fly-leaf reads: "James E. Rice from his Father. Read with care. Notice health directions bodily and spiritual, 1864."
