THE SICK AND WOUNDED PENNSYLVANIA SOLDIERS IN WASHINGTON.
WASHINGTON, June 26, 1862.
To the Editor of the Press:
SIR: Accompanying this communication we send you a list of the sick and wounded Pennsylvanians, now in the hospital at Alexandria, Va., which we request you to insert in The Press. We desire this, so that information of the location and condition of our sick and wounded may be conveyed by your widely circulated journal, to their friends in Pennsylvania, or elsewhere, and they thus be enable to communicate with them.
We are happy to say that it will rejoice their friends to know, that in all the hospitals we visited, the sick and wounded are well and carefully attended, and their wants relieved by those in charge, so far as within their power.
It is proper that we should acknowledge the kindness of the surgeons and attendants in charge, in giving us all the information and assistance in their power in the prosecution of our inquiries.EUGENE AHERN,
