From the Richmond Whig, 10/5/1864
CUTTING AND STABBING. – The inmates of Stuart Hospital, formerly the old Fair Grounds, were thrown into a state of excitement yesterday by a desperate encounter which took place there between two men, one of whom was named D. B. Craddock. The unknown picked up a chair and struck Craddock over the head, whereupon, he drew a knife and inflicted a wound in the bowels of the other, which is likely to prove fatal. Subsequently, Craddock was arrested, and committed to Castle Thunder to await an examination by court martial.
