Limited news service. Our company shortly after this was divided. The Federals, finding the place was in too crowded a condition, sent off a considerable number of the prisoners to Elmira, in New York State, including the greater part of our people. We parted, as may be supposed, with many expressions of regret. We had been thrown together so much under very trying circumstances that we felt the separation a good deal. It was with intense feeling that those of us who remained heard, from time to time, from new prisoners coming in, of the varying fortunes of the war.

About a month or so afterwards those of our party captured on the 9th of June, who had been sent to Elmira, as well as those left behind at Point Lookout, with the sad exception of two or three who died while in prison, among the number Mr. Wm. B. Egerton, were happily restored to freedom.
