From the Richmond Dispatch, 6/27/1862, p. 1, c. 7

Wounded Soldiers. – Our readers are reminded that the misses of Gamble’s Hill will hold a Fair at Pratt’s Castle, Mr. J. D. Browne’s residence, this afternoon at 4 o’clock, when they expect to be liberally patronized by all who sympathize with the Southern cause. Besides the music of the Armory Band and the afternoon drill of the State Guard, they intend serving their patrons at night with pure ICE CREAM. Let their hall be crowded.
