From the Richmond Dispatch, 11/6/1862, p. 1, c. 4

Dead Body Found. – The body of a dead man, (name unknown,) was drawn out of the dock yesterday morning at 10 o’clock, and laid on the South bank, between the dock and James river, just below the Libby prison. It was still in the same position at a late hour yesterday evening, no effort having been made to remove and inter the body, which, from appearances, had been some time in the water.
