Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 2. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), chapter 5.29 (search)
Diary of Captain Robert E. Park, of Twelfth Alabama regiment. [continued from October Number.] December 9th, 1864 Letters have been received from Captain Hewlett, now at Fort Delaware; from Misses Lizzie Swartzwelder, Nena Kiger, Gertie Coffroth and Jennie Taylor, of Winchester, and Misses Anna McSherry, Mollie Harlan and Mary Alburtis, of Martinsburg. The dear young ladies who write me so promptly and so kindly have my warmest gratitude for their cheering letters. These charming, hitherto unknown Cousins, contribute greatly towards relieving the tedious, unvarying monotony of this humiliating prison life. Additional insults in different ways are the only change, and keep us in a constant state of excitement and indignation. The very confusion and turmoil is monotony. Private Sam Brewer, of my company, also wrote me from Elmira, New York, where he is confined as a prisoner of war. Sam was the well known, humorous sutler of the Twelfth Alabama. He says that a poor,

Several pretty girls called to see us, and entertained us very agreeably with their charming conversation. Among them were Misses Nena Kiger, Gertrude Coffroth, Sallie Hoffman, Jennie Taylor, and Lizzie Swartzwelder. They are true to the cause and encourage us much. September 25. (Sunday). All the churches in the city, except one, are filled with Yankee wounded. Our surgeons say our wounded will not number over 500, while theirs is between 4,000 and 5,000, nearly ten times greater than ours. Their killed is said to be equal to our killed and wounded together. Verily, a costly victory for them! Miss Janet Fauntleroy, a very pretty and intelligent young lady, came t
flames, lighted, we doubt not, by the torch of an incendiary. The theatre is a complete wreck — nothing left but a portion of the walls. All the valuable scenery, painted by the elder Grain, Getz, Heilge, and Italian artists employed by George Jones; all the wardrobe and "property," including some costly furniture and decorations; rich oil paintings and steel portraits of celebrated dramatists; manuscript plays, operas, and oratorios, all are involved in the common destruction. Miss Jennie Taylor, the custodian of the wardrobe, lost about $1,200 worth individually, while the whole stock wardrobe under her care, part of which belonged to Kunkel & Moxley; and part to Mrs. McGill, was probably worth from $1,000 to $5,000. Some members of the company lost quite heavily--Messrs. Ogden and Dalton several hundred dollars worth in books and wardrobe. Mr. Loebman, leader, and others, of the orchestra, lost between $300 and $400 in instruments and sheet music. The instruments destroyed
