Chimborazo Hospital

We have been requested to say to the ladies, who have done much for this hospital, that they will render the most essential service to those of its suffering inmates that are wounded, by supplying rags for bandages of different kinds, poultices, &c. It will also conduce to a good end if worn out cotton garments are sent to the stewards of the different hospitals to be used in applying mustard plasters. Many of the depots of the sick are but scantily supplied with such articles. We are sure that the ladies will do all in their power to keep our soldiers from suffering.
