--The large warehouse of Edmond, Davenport
& Co., on the Dock, is now occupied by the Commissariat, and is well filled with stores for the use of the army.
It is a convenient locality in view of the means of water transportation.
A large amount of freight is brought in lighters by the Virginia Towing Company, from Petersburg
, and landed at the door of the warehouse.
This saves labor and drayage, which is an important consideration in a department involving a multiplicity of duties.
