Sir, I would like to be removed from here to Libby prison as I am a federal soldier and a regular prisoner of war. I was captured in Loudon Co Va on Friday the 25th day of Sept with my ??? arms and equipment by Col. White’s men and was on my way to Richmond under guard and I made my escape from them and was on my way back as far as wood stock and I was taken by Maj. Gilmer’s men again. I was to of been sent to Libby the next day but I am here yet. I was brout here with several deserters. I will thank you if you will have me removed to Libby or with my own men.
