Provisions for visitors.

Ample provision was made for feeding and quartering visiting veterans. Our citizens gave hearty welcome, and probably fifty thousand meals were dispensed by the two camps of Confederate veterans of the city—Lee and Pickett. So bountiful was the provision made that a large quantity of supplies remained unused. These were distributed among charitable institutions.
