Chimborazo Hospl No. 4
October 10th 1863


           In obedience to circular of 3d inst issued by Medical Director, I have the honor to report that I have at this Division a number of bunks not required by the capacity of the Division. I have not storage for all of them upon the Hospital premises. These bunks are rough, unsightly and uncomfortable. If allowed to break them up the material can be advantageously used for various purposes conducive to the comfort of my patients. I respectfully ask for orders as to the disposal of them.
