From the Richmond Whig, 7/26/1861

PRIVATE HOSPITAL - Several ladies, whose devotion to the cause of Southern Independence has been attented by their unvarying toil for several weeks, in making uniforms for the volunteers, have obtained the use of a school-house at the corner of Clay and 10th streets, which they have fitted up at their own expense, for the comfortable accommodation of several wounded soldiers. - They will also provide nurses and subsistence. The owners of the building, Messrs. Kersey and Davis have extended its use to the ladies, without charge, for an indefinite period.
