From the Richmond Dispatch, 11/14/1862, p. 1, c. 3

Prison Items. Only five prisoners were brought to the Libby prison yesterday. Two belonged to the 10th Connecticut regiment and were captured in Williamson, N. C. on the 10th; the other three were found on the 11th inst., while making their way through Matthews co. They belonged to the 139th regiment New York vols. They claim to be deserters, making their way from Fortress Monroe. Each was dressed in negro clothing, having swapped their uniform off for that kind of toggery.
