From the Richmond Enquirer, 6/15/1861, p. 3, c. 5

PRISONERS. – A detachment from our army at Yorktown reached here on Thursday, bringing with them thirteen of the prisoners captured in the battle at “Bethel Church.” They were temporarily quartered at the Custom House, where many of our citizens evinced some degree of curiosity to get a peep at the captured Yankees. Some four or five of the thirteen claim to be Virginians. If this be the case they should receive less sympathy than the Yankees; for, while the latter are only unfortunate, the first are traitors to their State, and should be dealt with accordingly.
