     The Stuart Hospl – cap. 400 – is being opened as a Receiving Hospl for sick and wounded coming by the Fredericksburg Depot.

      If the Recg & Way Hos. becomes filled you will transfer 400 to this Hos retaining a sufficient no to go to Pbg to-morrow as directed. I design transferring a no of men from 250 – 400 to Danville tomorrow and will let you know in time. In the interim, retain such for this purpose as will not be fit for any duty in 15 days and upwards.
