From the Richmond Dispatch, 11/25/1862, p. 1, c.

Garroted. Mr. Francis T. Isbell was met on Sunday night about 9 o'clock, above Brook avenue, on Marshall street, by three men who inquired the way to the Louisiana Hospital. While he was directing them how to go, one of the men threw his arm around his neck and attempted to put his hand over his mouth. Mr. Isbell succeeded in ridding himself of the first assailant, but the other two coming up, he was knocked down and would have been robbed had not his cries attracted persons to the spot, when the robbers took to their heels.
