From the Richmond Whig, 10/21/1863

FREIGHT FOR YANKEE PRISONERS. A large quantity of freight, brought from Yankeeland, by the last truce boat, and intended for prisoners of war, now confined in the Libby prison, was sent up to Petersburg from City Point, Monday, and placed in the hands of the Southern Express Company for delivery. There were some six or eight dray loads of boxes altogether, sent from every State of the Union. Most of them contain provisions, clothing and reading matter.
