Miss Jennie A. Curtis
.--Probably all of our readers are familiar with the story of the arrest by the rebels, and subsequent release, of Miss Jennie A. Curtis
,--we notice that many of the papers have insisted on calling her Mrs. Curtis
, and in fact the name has appeared in our own columns in that shape, but it is a mistake.
We do not publish the letter, as Miss Curtis
expressly says it is not intended to go into print.
She informs us that her business at Washington
was to visit her brother, who is a member of Capt. Thomas
' Company, we believe, her object being to see for herself how the regiment fared.
Her brother had never made any complaints, and she wanted to know how he was faring.
After satisfying herself on this point, she was induced by him to remain in the vicinity of the camp until the expiration of his sworn term of three months, when he expected to accompany her home.
She is now — or was at the time the letter was written — boarding at the Clarendon Hotel
, but will be home in a few days.
says the “secesh,” as she calls them, did not make much out of her, and adds:--“I was determined, if I was to die, to say all I had to say” --and we have no doubt she said it. As we have before stated, she is the daughter of Mr. Hiram Curtis
, of Albion
