From the Richmond Dispatch, 6/10/1862, p. 3, c. 2

HAPPENING in the St. Charles Hospital yesterday evening, we witnessed an operation said to be the most difficult in Surgery, viz: Ligating the subclarian artery for secondary hemorrhage. The patient was Jesse Wright, of the 9th Va. Regt. The operators – W. E. Kemble, C. Carter, Z. B. Herndon, and among them D. C. Jones, M. D., 4th Texas Regt., now acting Assistant Surgeon at Kent, Paine & Co.'s Hospital, Main street – each one appeared to perform his part with ability, clearly showing their familiarity with their profession, which at this time is so important to the wounded and suffering soldier.
