From the Richmond Examiner, 11/4/1861
RE-CAPTURED. – Two of the Yankee prisoners in this city were permitted on
Friday to enjoy temporary liberty on account of sickness. They left, of course,
but were re-captured on Saturday at Cox’s Ferry, on James river, about ten
miles below this city, and returned to prison yesterday morning. On Saturday
officer Davis returned to this city from Fincastle, bringing with him Israel, a
convict slave, who recently escaped from the fortification below this city.
