| OUR WOUNDED SOLDIERS AT THE HOSPITALS
IN WASHINGTON AND VICINITY
Worcester, Oct. 20, 1862
To The Editor of the Spy:---
In compliance with a request of the city authorities, I have for the past ten days, been busily engaged in visiting the hospitals in Washington and vicinity, for the purpose of seeking out wounded soldiers from the city and county, and inquiring particularly into their condition, to see whether or not they were receiving sufficient care and attention from the surgeons in attendance.
Appended below, is a list of the sick and wounded soldiers from this vicinity, and the various hospitals where they now are. The list is not intended for a full one, for many wounded men have been sent to New York and elsewhere, and others have obtained furloughs, and been sent home. Many of the men will probably obtain furloughs , as soon as they are able to travel, and many will be discharged from service. to any person wishing to make inquiries in regard to friends, or matters connected with my mission, I will cheerfully impart all the information I am able to convey. Charles B. Pratt.
