From the Richmond Sentinel, 4/20/1864, p. 2, c. 3

Mayor’s Court. – The following cases were disposed of by the Mayor yesterday:

…John Collins was charged with receiving blankets stolen from the Jackson Hospital. It appeared that a free negro, being arrested for stealing a lot of blankets from the hospital, confessed that he had sold them to Collins, who lives on 7th street, near Broad. Officer Perrin, on searching Collins’ house, found a blanket and coverlet, marked “Camp Jackson,” both of which were identified by a gentleman from the hospital as part of the stolen property. Collins was sent on for petty larceny.

[remainder of cases not transcribed.]
