The soldiers' Aid Society of Virginia.
--The Soldiers' Aid Society of Virginia
was formed about the middle of the month of June by a portion of the ladies of Richmond
, for the purpose of affording to the benevolent people of the Confederate States
a medium through which they might aid the sick and wounded soldiers of our army.
The society has received very liberal contributions in money from all of the Confederate States
, and large contributions in hospital supplies from most of them.
It has aided all the hospitals in the Northwest
, the hospitals at Gordonsville
, and Culpeper Court-Houses, and other small hospitals between Culpeper
and the Potomac
, and the hospital at Charlottesville
, and has sent very large supplies to Yorktown
and other hospitals on the peninsula.
In many instances the society has sent a highly respectable minister of the Gospel, of this city, to examine personally into the condition of the hospitals and the wants of the sick.
The society has aided weekly five private hospitals, and less frequently three other private hospitals, in this city.
|The receipts of the society in money from the date of its formation have been||$5,490.81|
|Balance on hand||1,814.14|
The society solicits further contributions in money and hospital supplies from the people of the Confederate States
, especially the ladies, to enable it to carry on, and to extend if possible, the good work in which it is engaged.
