From the Richmond Whig, 9/23/1862, p. 2, c. 1
THE HOSPITALS. – From a report presented in the Confederate
Senate, yesterday, it appears that the whole number of patient (soldiers)
admitted into the various hospitals, in and around Richmond, from the date of
their organization to the present time, is 99,508, of whom 9,774 have been
furloughed, and 7,608 have died. The rest, it is presumed, have recovered and
been discharged, except those remaining in the hospitals.
