Kate Cumming: A Journal of Hospital Life in the Confederate Army of Tennessee.

Sunday, November 9. [Chattanooga] —Mrs. W. is recovering.

Had a visit a few evenings ago from Mrs. Newsom. She has charge of a new hospital that is opened in the Crutchfield House; it is called the “Foard,” in honor of the medical director of this army.

I had a letter yesterday from a Mrs. Young, in Charleston. She is going to send me a box of tracts and other reading matter for the men, which is much needed. She writes very encouragingly of the safety of Charleston. General Beauregard is in command there. I know the enemy dread to meet him.
