Two of the wounded are known to have died. A few others probably will die, but I hope not many. The wounded are either on boats, or in hospitals at Savannah, and are as well taken care of perhaps as is possible in the circumstances. But doubtless great numbers have died, and will die, who might have been saved if they could at once have received the surgeon’s attention, and the nursing of home.
