From the Richmond Examiner, 5/13/1864

THE SEABROOKS RECEIVING HOSPITAL was besieged yesterday by the friends and relatives of the wounded received, and the friends of those engaged in the battles, but not yet heard from. Nearly one hundred were admitted yesterday, wounded in the fighting of Wednesday evening and yesterday morning, on the Brooke and Mechanicsville pikes. Their wounds were mostly severe, and two deaths resulted during the day.

Howard Grove hospital, being nigher the scene of the fighting, the majority of the wounded were cared for there. Our citizens cannot be too assiduous in supplying the hospitals with nourishing food for the wounded, bandages, &c.
