Help the wounded.
--The following card is from Rev. J. C. Hiden
of the Post at Charlottesville
The price of Jackson
's victories in the Valley
is daily pouring into the hospitals of Charlottesville
in the shape of wounded soldiers.
If the people do not voluntarily contribute to their wants, many valuable lives and limbs must be lost, which might be saved by a little exertion and liberality on the part of the citizens along the line of the railroads.
I therefore earnestly appeal to you, my fellow citizens, to aid in relieving the wants of hundreds of wounded already here, and others that are still coming.
Send your contributions to the care of Dr. Davis
of the Delavan Hospital
, or to the Ladies' Hospital
, care of Dr. Winston
The following articles are most needed: Tin basins, cups, saucers, tin funnels, (quart) gourds for funnels, shirts, drawers, (no matter how old or coarse,) sponge bandages 2½ to 4 inches wide, old linen rag, carded lint, ice, chickens, eggs, any kind of delicacies and refreshments which can be transported.--Fresh vegetables and fruits, and domestic wines, would aid greatly.
Pure brandy is greatly needed to stimulate the very badly wounded.
All sorts of crockery ware
and knives and forks are wanted.
Any money sent to the Rev
, J. C. Hilden
of the Post of Charlottesville
, will be advantageously invested for the soldiers comfort.
Any of these articles, and anything else which would add to the comfort of the wounded would be a grateful offering to these brave and patient sufferers.
