Article on Reunion of 4th North Carolina Band.

THE FOURTH NORTH CAROLINA BAND.-J. C. Steele writes from Statesville, N. C.: "A reunion of the only three surviving members of the old 4th North Carolina and was held with J. P. Gillespie, near Statesville, on the 18th of May. A pleasant four hours was spent, as we recalled to memory many things which happened during the War between the States. E. B. Neave, of Salisbury, who was leader of our band, T. P. Gillespie, and I are the only ones known to be living. We remember very pleasantly the Neff family of Newmarket, Va., the Merritt family of Petersburg, Zitebart, leader of the 4th Georgia Band, and others of the same band. I would be glad to hear from any one who knew our band during the war."
