From the Wadesboro North Carolina Argus,
God Bless Them.
Tompkins, living on Main street, corner 3rd, Richmond, Va., has, at
her own individual expense, fitted up a large and commodious house, as a
hospital, supplying it with every needed requisite, partitioning off the rooms
into delightful and healthful receptacles for the sick and wounded soldiers,
superintending in person, the administering of medicines, food, and all things
else necessary and condusive to their restoration to health. The expenses of
this large establishment and liquidated from her own purse. A regular Surgeon is
in attendance at this hospital. Another lady living a few doors from this
establishment, periodically visits this hospital, and others, carrying loads of
nice and necessary condiments to the poor, wounded, sick, and suffering
soldiers. Again we say – God bless them! And he will.
