Maj. Parkhill Q. M.
Sometime since I made a requisition for a chapel to be built at this Hospital
which requisition was disapproved because of the scarcity of lumber. I have to
state that the house originally built for a bed & chair factory near Winder
Hospital and afterwards occupied by the guard by the guard as quarters and guard
houses will furnish sufficient lumber for the erection of said Chapel and can be
purchased of Mr. B. Green the owner, at moderate price. The building is being
torn to pieces and consumed for fuel. I therefore request that you see to it and
if possible make arrangements for the purchase for the purpose above indicated.
Very Respectfully, &c
R. A. Lewis
Surgeon in charge
