A letter from the U.S. Sanitary Commission in Washington is addressed to the Soldiers' Aid Society of Bethel. It informs soldiers' aid and other relief groups that large numbers of "convalescent and partially disabled" soldiers would be released soon from hospitals and sent home.
Suggestions were offered for aiding and dealing with the soldiers, who were being released because the Civil War had ended.
