From the Richmond Dispatch, 11/4/1861, p. 2, c. 3
– Our attention has been called to the fact, that the soldiers who guard the
prisons, having no conveniences for warming their quarters, have been compelled
to adopt the expedient of building fires in the streets. We should think a
better arrangement might be provided for the comfort of the men who are detailed
for this tedious duty.
