A lamp was kept constantly burning in each of the prisoners' rooms. The furniture of each prisoner was a hospital bed with iron bedstead, a stool, table and a movable stool closet. A Bible was allowed each, and afterwards a prayer-book and tobacco were added. These regulations must have been directed or supervised by C. A.

On the 24th of May, 1865, Miles reported to Dana: * * * Yesterday I directed that irons be put on Davis' ankles, which he violently resisted, but became more quiet afterward.
