The item is apparently a draft of a report to the editor of the Mobile, Alabama, NEWS from a committee of judges for a contest of verses that commend Northerners for the contributions they had sent South during the epidemic of 1878. Lizzie, a poet herself and living in Burke County, Georgia, included a copy of the prize-winning poem by Maria L Eve of Augusta, Georgia, called "Conquered at Last. On the back at a later date is copied her own poem, "The Gypsy's Warning."
