Deaths at Scutari Hospital, January 1855

Southport Visiter, Feb 15th 1855

A letter from Scutari received in Liverpool :-

"On the 23rd I went over to Scutari to see the hospital. May I never see such a sight again. It was dreadful to see the poor fellows, some just recovering, others dying fast of their wounds, dysentry, etc. I saw 72 bodies put into a pit, and men trampling on the lower rows, as to make room for others. We had 2 or 3 of the wounds shown to us and I was obliged to rush out into the open air."
