Second note by Rush Hawkins, on U.S.M.S. St. Paul letterhead: "In my childhood days in Vermont this was called a porringer out of whichy children ate porrige and other seim-liquid foods. The English old silver dealers call it a cupping bowl, but I believe the former is the better and the more appropriate name. This came from the great grandfather of my dear wife, Nicholas Brown. Rush C. Hawkins." Accompanied by a magazine clipping [London?] showing a photograph of a similar "fine cupping bowl," the text indicating the greater value of a pierced handle.

Uniform: US Army general's belts, pouch and sword case
Contents Note:

Currently on display in the Annmay Brown Memorial. Items belonging to Rush Hawkins. The case contained an engraved Tiffany sword that was presented to Colonel Rush Hawkins by the 9th NY Zouaves and influential friends, shortly after he mustered out of service in May of 1863. The sword itself was stolen, along with other items, from the Memorial when it was temporarily closed between 1975 and 1977. The sword's design was approved for use by generals--not colonels. Charles Kirkland, the keynote speaker at its presentation ceremony, justified such a gift by asserting that Col. Hawkins had "performed the duties of a Brigadier General" while commanding the 9th NY. This tribute foreshadowed Hawkins' honorary promotion to the rank of brevet brigadier general two years after his military service ended.
