From the Richmond Dispatch, 7/3/1862, p. 1, c. 2


There are over 4,000 Yankees registered at the different places appointed for their reception in this city. Yesterday nearly three hundred were sent in, including J. F. Guy, 2d Lieutenant, 7th Pennsylvania; R. Sherman, Sergeant Major, 42d Pennsylvania and F. W. Usher, 2d Lieutenant company F, 34th New York. As soon as some place can be fitted up for the accommodation of the many wounded left on our hands by the commander of the Yankee forces, they will be brought into the city and properly cared for. There are already several hundred of the enemy's wounded here.
