From Richmond Dispatch, 6/12/1861, p. 2
The Ladies of Church
and Union Hills. – Dr. S. E. H.
Dance, Assistant Surgeon of the First Tennessee Regiment, before leaving for the
seat of war, sent us a letter acknowledging in appropriate terms the kindness of
the ladies of Church and Union Hills to the men of the Regiment while they were
recently suffering from sickness. In conclusion, he says: “Words are
inadequate to express the gratitude of those to whom you have shown so much
kindness; but we hope that you may live long to enjoy the freedom from
oppression for which we are contending. Should I never more be permitted to see
you, I bid you a long, last farewell.” The kindness of Company “G,” who
tendered the use of their hall for hospital purposes; also of the proprietor of
Springfield Hall; of Dr. St. Geo. Peachy, and the City Council, is duly
acknowledged by the writer.
