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.
