It was at this critical porlod or
my cscapo which, when detailed to
tho public in my lectures through
out tho western States caused un
usual commonts by tho press. Somo
maintained that it would ho Impos
sible for a person In my exhausted
condition at that tlmo, consequent
on my long 'imprisonment, to pass
through tho trying ordeal to which
1 was subjected toy this homo guard
who completed my capture at tho
time I knocked on tho bottom of
that kitchen door, asking for food,
then In the last stage of starvation.
But tho comrades of tho Grand Army
stood by me, and believed. They
knew that such atrocities as partici
pated upon mo when recaptured
(which at this late date, to relate
would causo unnecessary contro
versy and add but a little to the
Interest of 'my story) was common
with theso men when upon tho trail
of an escaped prisoner of war. I
wish my readers to understand I do
not charge these persecutions to tho
regular enlisted soldier who did his
lighting at tho front, wlf,ero you
found tho man of courage, but to
tho homo guard human vampires
dressed In the cloth of the Southern
soldier, to which they wero no more
entitled than Old Nick would bo to
tho sacred robes of Heaven. These
scavengers for blood, men who wero
void of honor when tho demon of
their nature was temporarily van
quished and tho spirit of goodness
illuminated their soul; men capable
to dark deeds who repellod the least
suspicion of a thought that tended
towards mercy. These wero tho peo
ple that trailed and hounded the
prisoner of wnr that would daro to
break away, and mako an effort for
It was theso vicious agencies that
deterred many from making an ef
fort to get away from theso pens of
pestilence and vermin, knowing from
others' experience, who had tried and
failed, that there was a slight chance
to succeed, but a stronger one to lose
one's life. The swamps and tho val
leys were often whitened with their
bleaching bones. In all due fairness
to tho Southern soldier to maintain
their escape, the men who fought val
iantly at tho front, I must draw tho
line and separate them from these
merciless whelps that wero placed
over prisoners of war, or that hung
upon the outskirts of a prison
ready to hunt them down.
When the Southern Confederacy
called its roll of men heartless and
merciless and placed them in charge,
they could not have selected a more
fiendish set had the gates of Hell
been opened to them, but all this was
sanctioned by a few not all.
Six hundred and thirty-five days
in their different prisons gave me a
thorough knowledge of the class that
were upholding their cause.
There were scenes and occurrences
in my prison life that wero I to tell
you of ten minutes' happenings each
day, In the way I see them, would
discount fiction and qualify you to
judge as to their character as soldiers.
Oh, you who heard not of this woe,
Listen till you hear tho tale.

Passing through Newberry It seemed
to bo tho delight of my captors to
completo my torture, they practising
tho extent of tholr Ingenuity whllo
standing at a well at the outskirts
of tho town, refreshing 'themselves
but not a drop for tho poor, miser
able Yankee. (Readers, I shall draw
tho screen again.) One of them
started In ndvanco as wo left tho

crowd. After my first night's exper

cruelties the were capable of, and

was too far gono to care. Death
would have 'been a relief.

In its prison record a sorrowing tale
of woe and want, and death, which
I hope never to see chronicled.
It is February, 1SG5. There is a
new lot of guards on hand. Some
thing new Is stirring the prison au
thorities. The guards are preparing
to leave. 'Where now are they going
to take us? Can It be worse?

My very soul Is aflame with the
