From the Richmond Examiner, 5/7/1864

BANDAGES FOR THE WOUNDED. To-day will witness, doubtless, the arrival in Richmond of many hundreds of our suffering wounded from the battlefields, and it is the privilege, as well as the duty, of the citizens and others to provide as many alleviating appliances as possible. Surgeon J. B. Read, in charge of General Hospital No. 4, Tenth street, between Clay and Leigh, requests that the ladies send to the hospital, early this morning, as many clean linen rags, for bandages, as they can provide. Attention to this appeal is earnestly enjoined upon all who have the linen to spare. The stock on hand in the hospitals is quite limited no, and as No. 4 hospital is central, the bandages can be distributed to the others if a surplus is found.
