Prisoners of War.
Letters by flag of truce inform us that among the prisoners at the old Capitol prison, in Washington
, is Captain Richard E. Frayser
, of this city, an officer of the signal corps.
He was captured on the 20th of June. A letter from Fort Delaware
says that the following members of the Third company Richmond Howitzers are in that prison: Captain B. H. Smith
Jr., Sergeant T. H. Quarles
, Corporal Claiborne Hunt
, Privates Breeden
, De Leon
and Jones. Bohannon
and W. H. Roberts
are both wounded and in the Federal
hospital — the former badly hurt in the leg and body and the latter slightly in the hand.
All the others are doing very well and are in good health.
