Increase of Sick and Wounded. – There arrived
on Sunday, via the old Louisa route, an addition of nearly three hundred and
fifty to our present stock of wounded and disabled soldiers. Some of them are
suffering with measles, some with bilious and other affections that will require
medicine and careful nursing to restore them again to a condition of usefulness.
and Wall Street Hotels, both now used as Hospitals, contain over 460 patients,
who, we are confident, will receive all the care and attention that their
several cases demand. Our citizens, aided by those from other parts of the
Confederacy, have thus far shown themselves untiring in their exertions to put
the wounded and sick soldiers of the Confederacy on a war footing again as soon
as careful nursing and good diet and medicine will enable them to do so.
