Fort Monroe, Va., April 8, 1863.
Colonel W. HOFFMAN, Commissary-General of Prisoners.
COLONEL: Your letters of the 2nd and 6th instant with inclosures are just received. The lists of deceased Confederate soldiers are I suppose intended for the Confederate authorities. Please inform me by return mail whether I can depend upon the receiving of the prisoners held under the order of the Navy Department and also Zarvona at the same time with the officers. I cannot arrange exchange of naval officers and men without the former and a very advantageous exchange can now be effected for the latter. I am very desirous to get these old matters out of the way and now seems to be the best time to do it. I sent to Annapolis last evening about 150 released prisoners. Among them and who are declared exchanged are the following named officers. *
I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
WM. H. LUDLOW,
Lieutenant-Colonel and Agent for Exchange of Prisoners.
