Woolsey family letters during the War for the Union

Dr. Hugh Lenox Hodge to Georgeanna Woosey.

Philadelphia, June, 1862.

Dear Georgy: Once more our paths have separated. . . . Upon my return with the wounded from the battle of Fair Oaks, I received appointment to a large hospital (1,500 beds), now building in West Philadelphia. I will live at home, but will be there a part of each day.

The Pennsylvania delegation to which, as you know, I was attached when at the White House and elsewhere, has been dissolved.
