The Female Surgeon.
--A letter dated "Castle Thunder," Richmond
, has been received by the mother of Miss Dr. Mary Walker
, from which it appears that the Surgeon
bears her imprisonment lightly.
The following is an extract from her letter:
"I hope that you are not grieving about me because I am a prisoner of war. I am living in a three story brick castle, with plenty to eat and a clean bed to sleep in. I have a room mate; a young lady of about 20 years of age, from near Corinth
, (Miss Martha Manual
.) I am much happier than I might be in some relations of life where I might be envied by other ladies.
The officers are gentlemanly and kind, and it will not be long before I am exchanged. --Penkes Paper.
