Your last note was duly handed to us. In reply would say that we have 10
vacant beds which we would like to fill with sick & not convalescent
patients, provided they are in your opinion able to be transferred with
propriety. We have here some 75 or 80 patients from other States besides Louisiana
which, as they are mostly convalescent, we would be more than happy to exchange
