The Federal prisoner, if it be agreeable to you, will be sent to or near Hampton by a sergeant, who will receive the vidette, Carter, who was captured by your troops before the battle commenced. I do not think a more formal proceeding necessary. You have but one prisoner of mine, and he was not taken in battle. If my proposition to deliver one Federal prisoner at or near Hampton, by a sergeant, to be exchanged for private Carter, be accepted, please inform me, or the officer in command at Bethel Church, and it shall be done.

I am sorry that an officer so distinguished in the service of the United States as yourself could, for a moment, suppose that the wanton destruction of private property wouthe troops near this post, is being inflicted on men who have enlisted in the service of the United States, (not soldiers,) for plundering private property.
