From the National Archives, RG 109, Ch. 6, Vol. 707-709; “Letters Received and Sent, Chimborazo Hospital. 1861-64.” 3 Vols: Vol. 708, p. 259

Medical Director’s Office,
Richmond, Va. November 26th 1863

Sir;

The Louisiana Hospital being closed, Mrs. Sarah Fowler, Matron of that institution, is thrown out of employment. She is very competent, a refugee from New Orleans, and a lady in whom the President takes great interest on account of her self-sacrificing patriotism in being one of the first to register her name as an enemy of the U. S. and subject herself to exile & confiscation. If possible to give her a position in the Hospital under you charge, you will oblige me by doing so.

Very Respectfully
   Yr Obt Servt
      Wm. A. Carrington
         Medical Director
