Our Army Correspondence.
Annapolis, Sept. 15, 1862.
The following is a list of the 1st Vermont Cavalry prisoners who died at Lynchburg:
Joseh Taylor, Private, Co. G, died July 1, Langdon H. Nichols, Corporal, Co. C, died July 27; --- Reynolds, Private, Co. G, died July 29; --- Wickware, Private, Co. G, died July 29; Albert Kennerson, Private, Co. D, died August 6; Merrit Bassett, Private Co. F, died August 5.
Orris P. Knights, Corporal Co. B, left at Lynchburg sick, died afterwards.
Zebina Landon, Corporal, Co. A, I have learned from a reliable sourced, died in the hospital at Richmond about ten days before we left.
We have been starved, and lived without soap, lowsy, ragged and shoeless. On the whole, we are glad to reach out lines again, even in our sad plight. From behind the curtain, more anon. Sergt.
