Southern Historical Society Papers, Volume 1. (ed. Reverend J. William Jones), Statement of General J. D. Imboden. (search)
ederate prisons ceased to exist, and on the 3d of May, 1865, I was myself a prisoner of war on parole at Augusta, Georgia. A few days later I was sent with other paroled Confederates to Hilton Head, South Carolina, where I met about 2,000 of the Andersonville prisoners, who had been sent up from Saint Augustine, to be thence shipped North. Their condition was much improved. Many of them were glad to see me, and four days later I embarked with several hundred of them on the steam transport Thetis for Fortress Monroe and have reason to believe that every man of them felt himself my friend rather than an enemy. It has been charged that Mr. Davis, as President of the Confederate States, was responsible for the sufferings of prisoners held in the South. During my four months connection with this disagreeable branch of Confederate military service, no communication direct or indirect, was ever received by me from Mr. Davis, and, so far as I remember, the records of the prison containe

cluding porcelain, and that they had glazes of glass, lead, and salt. Of the Athenian vases some are fluted, some of a jet black, and others a bright red. The Corinthians had a heavy coarse black ware. That of Athens was the lightest and most elegant, that of Sicyon the brightest and most ancient. The Greeks had also pink vases with black silhouettes. The Barberini or Portland vase is the largest and best preserved specimen of ancient paste glass. The figures represent the nuptials of Thetis and Peleus. For a treatise on vases, see Fosbroke's Encyclopaedia of Antiquities, 1.233-243. See also Rawlinson's Five great Empires, Vol. I. 389 – 391. Vat.

inst this, which meets us in Paradise Lost, Book IV.; for Horace had no more right to say that this liberta was the boldest of the daughters of Tyndarus— when she was none of them—than Milton had to call Adam the goodliest man of men since born his sons. The cases, you must confess, are parallel, and, to save your feelings, literary vanity, etc., etc., I will acknowledge that the case of Milton is the strongest and most obvious. Homer, however, settles the whole question. He says that Thetis went to heaven and implored Jupiter to honor her son, telling him, as a motive, that his life would be very short. But, on your ground, how could he be the most short-lived of the rest? My last example is similar to this one. In enumerating the Grecian heroes, and assigning them their several qualities and virtues, he gives Nereus beauty. Here it is again. Milton is a fool to this! The example is tangible,—it cannot be evaded; you may as well try to jump clear of space, or forget <
