Dr. W. A. Carrington
Will you please send us more
patients as morning reports proves, we have but five.
I regret to have so little to do.
Are there no wounded or sick coming in that could be placed under our care. We
have been daily hoping to register some arrivals, but since the beginning of
July have received but one.
M. D. O. Aug. 8 1864
Respectfully referred to Surg. J. J. Gravatt (Rec. & Way
Hospital) who will fill up this hospl with such ill men as desire to go there.
