[277] in the Federal prisons was in like round numbers but 220,000; that of the former there were 22,570 deaths, and of the latter 26,436 deaths; a difference in favor of the Confederates of 3,866, notwithstanding the 50,000 excess in our hands. Thus the percentage of deaths in Confederate prisons was about 8 3-10, while that in the Federal prisons was 12, a difference of about 37-10 per cent. in favor of the Confederates.
