From the Richmond Whig, 8/4/1865, p. 2, c. 6
The Exchange Hotel. – This hotel, which is in course of improvement and renovation by its new lessee, Mr. A. Winch, will not be reopened, we understand, before autumn, when the fall trade and travel sets in. Meanwhile, no pains or expense will be spared to put the hotel in the most complete condition of repair and ornamentation.
The Ballard House will be reopened some time during the present, or early next week.
