From the Richmond Dispatch, 1/12/1864

Escape from Castle Thunder. - In our notice yesterday we failed to announce that Wm. E. Meade, a private in our service, succeeded in effecting his escape. Meade was a guard at the prison, and finding himself detected in aiding in the escape of some of the prisoners confined therein, he took advantage of the confusion and made good his own exit from the prison. The efforts which are on foot to accomplish his capture are of such a nature as to warrant us in looking forward to the frustration of his designs.
