to 100 rations.
15 do. or tea, will be issued only to the sick or
wounded, on the recommendation of the Surgeon in charge, at the rate of twelve (12) pounds of sugar, five (5) pounds of ground or seven (7) pounds of green coffee, or one (1) pound of tea to the one hundred rations. This part of the ration will be allowed only for every other day.
The difference between the ration as above established, and the ration allowed by law to soldiers of the U. S. Army, constitutes the "savings" from which is formed the "Prison Fund."
VIII.—The Prison Fund is a credit with the Subsistence Department, and, at the request of the Commissary-General of Prisoners, may be transferred by the Commissary-General of Subsistence in manner prescribed by existing regulations for the transfer of Hospital Fund.
XVI.—When prisoners are seriously ill, their nearest relatives, being loyal, may be permitted to make them short visits; but under no other circumstances will visitors be admitted without the authority of the Commissary-General of Prisoners. At those places where the guard is inside the inclosure, persons having official business to transact with the Commander or other officer, will be admitted for such purposes, but will not be allowed to have any communication with prisoners.
