From the Richmond Examiner, Wednesday, 7/23/1862, p. 2
THE LIBBY PRISON HOSPITAL. - This institution, formerly the
receptacle of all the Yankee prisoners, has been emptied of them, and is now
converted into a hospital, where are cared for about one thousand of the Yankee
wounded. The well prisoners have all, with the exception of a thousand or so,
been removed to Belle Isle. Lieutenant Turner is in charge of the prison with a
corps of very attentive and polite assistants.
