From the Richmond Whig, 4/12/1865
HOTEL ACCOMMODATION. - Richmond will want all the hotel
accommodation that can possibly be made available, and for that reason we would
suggest that the Richmond House, as well as the Ballard, Spotswood and other
hotel edifices, should be given up exclusively to the accommodation of the
migratory public. The Richmond House, we believe, is occupied as one of the
headquarters of the military authorities.
