Wayside Home for Furloughed Soldiers Passing Through the City. The efficient and courteous officers in charge of the Seabrook Hospital, corner of Grace and Seventeenth streets, have made provision for the accommodation of soldiers on furlough, who may be detained in this city over night, waiting for the trains. A clean and comfortable bed, supper, and breakfast are furnished the weary soldier without cost.

Soldiers stopping at the hospital will not only save their money, but have as good lodging and fare as they would get at many of the hotels.
