From the Richmond Dispatch, 11/20/1862, p. 1, c. 5

Supposed Liquor Shops Closed. – On Tuesday, the detectives connected with the office of Captain R. M. Booker, Assistant Provost Marshal of the Western District. proceeded to search the restaurant kept on 8th street, near the Spotswood Hotel, by Jim Cook and John Dabney, in search of liquor.—Very little of the fluid was found; but appearances being much against the parties, as violators of the proclamation forbidding the sale of liquor, their house was closed and they locked up in Freeland's factory, corner 6th and Cary streets, for trial. Yesterday two detectives from Major Griswold's office visited the confectionery store of C. Baumhard, South Main street, between 7th and 8th, and ordered the proprietor to shut up his shop, complaints having been entered that liquor was sold at the place.
