From the Richmond Examiner, 6/23/1864

NEEDS AN EXPLANATION. – We are informed that a number of ladies who have devoted themselves to the relief of the soldier from the inception of the war, attempted to reach the interiour of the Stuart hospital on Tuesday with food and delicacies, but were refused admittance by the guard or porter in attendance, and turned away with their very acceptable burden. Who commands at Fort Stuart, that ladies cannot be admitted whenever they are the bearers of such welcome stores to our wounded soldiers, as we know the above ladies to have been? An explanation is needed.
