Medical Director’s Office,
Richmond, Va. Jany 28th 1864
All the sick and wounded from
Howard’s Grove and some from Gen. Hos. No. 1, will be sent you. You will keep
them in a separate division. The order recently given you in regard to closing
Divisions is to this extent modified. There is no probability of the beds,
unoccupied after their closures, being needed until April.
