From the National Archives, RG 109, Ch. 6, Vol. 364, “Letters Sent & Received,
Medical Director’s Office, 1864-65.” p. 38
Office, 31 March 1864
I called your attention to the
fact that you had not observed the directions given you in regard to the closure
of Divns and their use only when required.
No sufficient excuse has been
received from you and the daily reports from the Hospl show that these
instructions are disregarded.
Very Respy &c.
Wm. A. Carrington
