His name is Wm. Fitzgerald, who, according to the Baltimore American, is "a high-toned, educated gentleman, and once a class-mate of Gov. Letcher's." It appears that this unfortunate loyal citizen, after getting into the Castle, addressed a letter to his former class-mate and received the following answer, which is furnished to the American by Birch, and which it considers one of the most "shocking cruelties of the war;" Executive Department, Richmond, June 25, 1863.
