Letter From L. Thomas to MG John Wool Regarding Release of R. D. Shepherd, January 22, 1862.

Washington, January 22, 1862.

Maj. Gen. John E. Wool, U.S. Army, Fort Monroe, Va.

SIR: Hon. A. R. Boteler, of Virginia, has through a friend asked the release or exchange of his son-in-law, R. D. Shepherd, and four other persons named Abram Shepherd, George Johnston, George McGlincy and Conrad Crowl, all of whom are confined as prisoners in the Department of the Potomac. As it is understood there is willingness to release a corresponding number of our prisoners instead of them you are desired by the General-in-Chief to propose an exchange for the following named: Leonard Clark, private of Harrison County, Va., taken prisoner in the Cheat Mountain last fall, Jonathan Morris, James E. Wood, John Alford and Thomas S. Ross, taken at Guyandotte.

I am, sir, &c.,

L.[orenzo] Thomas,
