the trustworthiness of his correspondent: Elkridge, August 31, 1862. Time and language would fall me if I attempted to give you an account of all that we hear of their outrages in New Orleans and the adjoining country. Don't believe Butler's lies about "Union sentiments" and loyal citizens there. If there is a place where the Federal are most detested, it is here in Louisiana. In New Orleans the ladies never go out of their houses if they can help it, and then are always armed as they soon returned. The servants had picked up their master's body and laid it out decently. The Federal robbed the house of silver, jewelry, and all valuables, and then went off to their boats. Another instance of savagery on the part of Butler: A friend of ours, in the last stages of consumption, was carried from New Orleans to Fort Jackson in spite of the entreaties of his poor wife that he might be permitted to die in peace, as his hours were numbered. The Federal sent him off. Of c
county below New Orleans, applied to General Shepley for advice in his character as Military Governor of the State. The correspondent of the New York Times says: These men informed the General that they came for freedom; they said their fellow-servants in other places were all leaving their masters, and that they wished also to improve their condition, but that it was not clear to their minds how was the best way to do so. They emphatically said, however, that they did not intend to labor much, if they could help it, without remuneration, and they concluded their requests and protests by asking that if they remained possibly at home they might have fair wages secured to them for their services. Gen. Shepley treated the matter with great consideration, and after conferring with Gen. Butler, permission was granted to these men to make terms with their master, who consented to have a partner in the transaction, and these men have gone to work, not as slaves, but as hired men.
