From the Richmond Sentinel, 5/28/1863

The Sick Soldiers
[Correspondence of the Sentinel]

Winder Hospital, May 24th, 1863.

In the army much has been said of the ill treatment at this hospital, but if you are ever sent here for the recovery of your health, you may rest assured that you will be well cared for, as the kind hearted ladies at this division (No. 4) are very attentive to their respective duties; and as long as they are able to attend to the sick, and visit their wards with nourishment suitable for your diet, you may rest assured that you will be speedily restored to health, and again ready for duty.

J.B.S.
Co. A, 24th Va. Vols.
