(Edited For Length)

WASHINGTON, D. C., April 6, 1862.
Brigadier General L. THOMAS,
Adjutant-General U. S. Army, War Department.

There are nearly if not quite 100 negroes among the prisoners captured at Donelson, most of whom were slaves and all of whom are considered as prisoners of war, receiving exactly the same treatment as other prisoners, and as evidence of this fact two of them have been paroled by Governor Tod on account of ill-health.

I remain, general, very respectfully, your obedient servant,


Assistant Inspector-General, U. S. Army.

I will add a round figure to the total that is currenty shown.
