CONFEDERATE LETTER TO MRS. HOPKINS WHO AT THE TIME WAS IN CHARGE OF THE CONFEDERATE HOSPITAL IN RICHMOND, VIRGINIA.
(Marion Times- Standard, sent in my Miss Flora D. England.)
"Marion, Nov. 21st, 1861
Allow me to trouble you to inform me of the condition of a Mr. Woods a member of Capt. England's Company, Independent Volunteers of the Eleventh Alabama Regiment. Mr. Woods has been for some time under you care in the hospital at Richmond, and while we all feel satisfied that you will render all the attention nd kindness that is in your power, the mother of this young man is desirous of knowing from you of his condition. Could you also give me something of the condition of the remainder of the sick of Capt. England's company now in your hospital.
You will doubtless remember me. I had the pleasure of your acquaintance in Richmond last August, at which time I handed you $111.00 from the ladies of Marion and vicinity.
Your prompt reply will much oblige and impart much satisfaction to the friends of the sick under your kind card.
