Preface.

These sketches were written to lessen the tedium of my lengthy imprisonment; and if they serve to recall to my prison-companions the scenes enacted in the old Warehouse, and enlist the interest and sympathies of the reader, they will have accomplished all that is desired by the publication of them. With the exception of "Homeward Bound," they were all written within prison walls, and brought to the North sewn securely in the lining of an overcoat. I confidently trust to my brother-officers for their testimony as to their fidelity of description of our "domestic economy," and the accuracy of detail in the varied incidents in our prison-life in the Tobacco Warehouse. W. C. H.
