Such being the case, if any unusual proceeding is instituted against Captain De Jarnette, or if he is treated in any manner other than as a prisoner of war, we will be reluctantly compelled to adopt retaliatory measures.
Respectfully, your obedient servant,
Agent of Exchange.

Commanding Confederate Forces, Morris Island, S. C.:
SIR: Your proposition for a mutual parole of wounded prisoners is acceded to, the paroled men to be exchanged at once.
