Slaves Confined in Castle Thunder. - The officers in
charge of Castle Thunder and the Libby prisons, have very courteously furnished
us with the annexed list of slaves, the names of their owners, and, where it is
known, their place of residence. As the information is derived from the negroes
there may be mistakes in the names of their masters. Besides the following,
there are a number of negroes confined in the Confederate prisons claiming to be
free. We make this publication for the benefit of those citizens who have lost
[List of 70 slaves, male and female, young and old, not
in Libby Prison.
Charles Boswell, man, owned by Wm. Davis, Prince William
Edmund, man, owned by John Saunderson, Norfolk.
