The Hospital at Mason Hall Church, under the able and zealous care of Dr. Geo. W. Briggs, assisted by an efficient corps of ladies where valuable services are constantly rendered, is receiving a large share of the sick and wounded from Manassas into its large, cleanly, and comfortable rooms. The neat and comfortable hospital at Springfield Temperance Hall, in the same neighborhood, which enjoys the excellent attentions of Dr. John Knox, and the most abundant ministrations of a number of ladies and gentlemen, is also filling up from the same source.
