ilation is not a very valuable one. General Humphreys, in his Virginia Campaign of 1864 and 1865,Appendix C:, page 416, is more accurate, though his roster was evidently made upon returns dated about the first of the month of August, as the changes in my own command will show. Yours very truly, N. H. Harris. In Memoriam. Our readers will remember the name of Mrs. Waller in connection with our report of the Reunion of Morgan's men last July. The following announces her death: Chicago, December 15th, 1883. Editor of Southern Historical Papers, Richmond, Va.: It is with profound sorrow that I announce the sudden death of Mrs. Sarah Bell Waller, at her residence on Ashland avenue in this city about 8 o'clock P. M. Thursday the 13th. The thousands of Confederate prisoners of war who survive their confinement in camp Douglas near this city during the war, will remember this lady as one of the most active and efficient of those noble-hearted ladies who devoted themselve

for an indefinite term within the boundaries of a prison camp. When the news of the capture of his native city reached Chicago, restraint broke loose, and his one expressed determination was to escape from prison and rejoin the Southern army. Fofficer refused to take off the handcuffs, for the reason that he had received a telegram from the commanding officer at Chicago to keep the prisoner handcuffed. At about 10 o'clock the same day, under the escort of a company of infantry, Blanchafs removed from the youth. The court, however, disclaimed jurisdiction in the matter, and Blanchard was brought back to Chicago in handcuffs. Here he was incarcerated in the celebrated White Oak dungeon, in Camp Douglas, where he remained for somelerical work at headquarters regarding the exchange of prisoners. At this time, through the kindness of sympathizers in Chicago, he was enabled to dress in first-class citizens' clothes, in which garb he was not recognized as a rebel by the mass of

I concealed myself duabout to start. As it moved off I climbed up between two box-cars, and the next morning was in Chicago. Before leaving the prison a comrade told me to go to Mrs. Morris for help if I succeeded in reaching Chicago. The address he gave me was incorrect, but by the merest accident I found her. I shall never forget her kind, sympathizing face as I told my tale. A nobler woman never lived, and longed, and other Confederate soldiers, most of whom also belonged to Morgan's command. I left Chicago that evening, arriving the next day at Marshall, where, to my surprise, I found, comfortably esquietly organizing the disaffected element into a force with which they expected to pounce upon Chicago or Indianapolis, or perhaps both, release the Confederate prisoners, and then, joined by a volu

Mrs. Mary Blackburn Morris, wife of the late Judge Buckner Morris, of Chicago, sister of Ex-Gov. Luke P. Blackburn and Senator J. C. S. Blackburn, of Kentucky, died in Louisville on the 20th of Oct., in the 66th year of her age. Her services among Confederate prisoners at Camp Douglas, Rock Island, and other prisons and her active sympathy for our cause and its adherents (briefly alluded to in the narrative of Mr. Damon, published in this No., and deserving a fitting record), caused the arrest and imprisonment of Mrs. Morris and her husband, wrecked their splendid
