From the Richmond Dispatch, 7/28/1862, p. 1, c. 7

The Enemies's Wounded. – Nearly the hundred wounded Yankees were dispatched homeward Saturday morning. One of them died on the cars between Richmond and Petersburg, and his body was left in the latter city for burial. Three more died between Petersburg and City Point. At the latter place they were taken in charge by their friends for interment. Yesterday morning at least 500 more were sent off. There arrived yesterday morning 300 wounded men from Savage's Station, attended by their nurses. It has been determined to bring all remaining there to Richmond, and dispatch them from this point. It is hardly probable that any will be sent on today. None of the factories are now tenanted by Yankees, but Talbott & Bonn's, on 18th street, which contains the officers. Libby's buildings will soon be emptied of their wounded.
