From the Richmond Examiner, 10/4/1861

TO BE RELEASED. – Some twenty-five or 30 of Lincoln's soldiers who were permanently injured in the battle of the 21st, but who have since been cured in the General Hospital here, will be sent shortly to Fortress Monroe, under a flag of truce, if old Wool intimates a willingness to receive them. Some of them are minus legs, some arms. They are evidences, but sorrowful ones to be sure, of the success of their employer's force measures. In accordance with the humane policy by which his actions are dictated, he may decline to receive them.
