Letter to John E. Mulford requesting status of J. J. Snyder, John S. Laird, and Richard Lewis October 26, 1864.

Memoranda sent to Maj. John E. Mulford.

Capt. J. J. Snyder, Thirty-first Louisiana Infantry, is now held as a prisoner at Johnson's island. He was captured and paroled at Vicksburg July 4, 1863. He has never been declared exchanged. He was arrested in Louisiana last February, and at the time claimed his rights as a paroled officer. His representations were disregarded and he is now held as a prisoner. Will you not release him on parole?

Chaplain John S. Laird, First Missouri Regiment, is held as a prisoner at Johnsons Island. This is in direct violation of our agreement, and I hope he will be immediately released.

Please inform me where Lieut. Richard Lewis, of the Palmetto [S. C.] Sharpshooters, is? He fell wounded in your bands on the 7th October last in the fight on the Darbytown road. His family do not know whether he is dead or alive.
