5 January, 1862

Memphis Daily Appeal, CS
The Federal prisoners who have been held in durance for the last three months at Little Rock were recently exchanged for two of Jeff Thompson’s men. They left for the dominions of Old Abe on Saturday last.
            The State Journal of the 24th says: “An escort arrived in this city, yesterday afternoon, bringing with them five Yankee soldiers, who were captured near Greenville, Mo., by some of Col. Borland’s command. The prisoners were lodged in jail for safe keeping.”
             Gov. Rector had left Little Rock for New Madrid, to visit his son, (a member of General Thompson’s staff) who was reported very ill.
