From the Richmond Examiner, 2/16/1864

THE ESCAPED YANKEE OFFICERS. No more re-captured Yankee officers were gathered in at the Libby yesterday. The number sticks at forty-eight. Possibly two or three more may be picked up, skipping about over the country; but the number re-captured already, and yet to be taken, will not exceed the half of the one hundred and nine who got off. Half a loaf is better than no loaf. As for Straight, the Confederacy got more than ten times his value when it received Morgan back, and can afford to let him run. Bon voyage, whiskey Straight!
