From the Richmond Enquirer, 8/8/1862
THE MILITARY PRISONS. - In the course of a few days the
military prisons in and around Richmond will be comparatively clear of inmates.
The exchange will have swept away the greater number of them, and the parole of
honor the rest. The Yankees who have hitherto been with us seem exceedingly
scrupulous of their honor, in this connection, and when they give their parole
that they will not fight until regularly exchanged, it may be relied on.
