Later she ordered that $1000 worth of something be sent to the hospitals. What was it?

I'm confused. Some years ago, I wrote a small article for something about how generous Mary Lincoln could be, especially with wounded soldiers. I thought that she received a $1000 donation from a man in Boston to use for soldiers' relief and ordered the $200 worth of lemons and $100 worth of oranges from that donation.

She also arranged for baskets of goodies and flowers to be sent to hospitals. Was there an additional $1000 of something that she ordered?
