Letter from Ro. Ould to Lieut. Gen. U.S. Grant Regarding Lieut. O.H. Lumpkin. March 11, 1865

RICHMOND, March 11, 1865.

Lieut. Gen. U. S. GRANT, U. S. Army:

SIR: Lient. O. H. Lumpkin, Second Tennessee Cavalry, who was captured in Mississippi in April, 1863, and who was a prisoner at Johnson's Island for twenty months, was taken in handcuffs from the latter place on the 20th ultimo in charge of a detective officer and carried to Washington. He was seen by one of our returned officers at Pittsburg on his way. Lieutenant Lumpkin was unable to ascertain the cause of this proceeding. It is said to have been done in pursuance of special orders from Washington. I will thank you for any information upon this subject. Will you not cause Lieutenant Lumpkin to be delivered to us?

Respectfully, your obedient servant,

Agent of Exchange.
