From the Richmond Dispatch, 8/6/1863

Sick and disabled soldiers, on furlough, or honorably discharged from the service, who are temporarily detained in Richmond, will be comfortably provided with food, quarters, and attention, free of charge, at the Wayside Hospital, corner of 19th and Franklin streets. - Similar hospitals have been established in Petersburg, Danville, Farmville, Lynchburg, Charlottesville, Liberty, and Staunton, near the railroad depots, where sick and wounded soldiers will have the necessaries of life furnished them without expense. These hospitals are all attended by competent parties, and we are quite sure that they will provide pleasant resting places for those wearied patriots who have so nobly hazarded their lives for their suffering and bleeding country.
