The wounded require attention, not of an onerous kind, but in applying water to the wounds, which become exceedingly painful when dry, and in supplying them with feed, which they ought to receive often, though in small quantities. From want of such light attentions as these, so easily rendered, and which any child might perform, many a gallant fellow may suffer and die. We know that we have a multitude of warm and generous hearts among us, but have we no Howard or Miss Nightingale, who can suggest and organize means of making effective the sympathies of the public in everything connected with the relief of our soldiers? We have referred to the deficiency of meat and stimulating food in one of our hospitals. From others we hear that the citizens have sent too much.

Well they eat and drank and tried to destroy what they could not eat and drink and some of them not make the rebel drink a toast. I said I had not drink — then with an oath, they said you shall drink. Well I said give me a glass and I'll drink a toast for you.

She pointed out the younger ones which any person of good taste would prefer for culinary purposes, but these he refused to take — he wanted the ancient hens, the patriarchs of the flock and for these he was willing to pay one dollar apiece in Federal coin.
