††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† From the Richmond Dispatch

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† YORKTOWN HOSPITAL

††††††††††† As a great diversity of opinion seems to exist in the minds of our lady friends relative to the hospital at this place, I write a short note on order to remove any uncertainty with regard to it.

††††††††††† We have four distinct hospitals.The first or general one is the old Nelson house, to which all the worst cases are sent.This is under the management of Dr. Hines, the Surgeon of the post.The next are the Regimental Hospitals belonging to each regiment, under the control of its individual surgeon.Here are sent only those cases which render the men temporarily unfit for duty.

††††††††††† The third is what may be termed the contagious, whose name is sufficiently explanatory of its character.

††††††††††† The fourth is the hospital at Biglerís Mills, about eight miles above this place, under the care of Dr. Randolph, to which are sent the convalescent patients and those who are suffering from chronic diseases.

††††††††††† I would suggest that persons sending delicacies and other things for these different hospitals, should always be particular to enclose in such packages the name of the kind givers and the article presented.

††††††††††† When they are intended for the general hospital, let them be marked to Dr. Hines; when for any one of the different regiments, let them be addressed distinctly to the regiment.We however think, as a general thing it would be best to direct all packages to Dr. Hines, marking distinctly on them the different regiments for which they are intended, when such is the case.

††††††††††† The Dr. informs me that he is in want of experienced professional nurses, who are willing to enter the hospital and abide entirely by his instructions.

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† THOMAS WARD WHITE,

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† ††† Chaplain of the Howitzerís Battalions
