Letter from John S. Carlile to E. M. Stanton Regarding Exchange of T. T. Mitchell and J. Barrett

WASHINGTON, January 22, 1862.

[Hon. E. M. STANTON, Secretary of War.]

DEAR SIR: Some time last fall Lieuts. C. B. Hall and Charles Freeman, of the First West Virginia Regiment, in the service of the United States, were captured at French's, near Romney. General Rosecrans will exchange for them two lieutenants of equal rank captured at Carnifix Ferry. Their names are J. Barrett, Hawkins County, Tenn., and T. T. Mitchel, Grayson County, Va. Our people are anxious for the return of Hall and Freeman, and I have to request of you in their name that some arrangement if possible be made by which the exchange can be had. Cannot a proposition be made through General Wool? Hall and Freeman are from Hancock County, Va., just across the river from your old home as I am informed, and their friends claim you as one of them and confidently look to you in this matter.

Very respectfully,


P. S. - Let me hear from you at your earliest convenience.
