From the Richmond Dispatch, 5/1/1863

Prison Items – George Folke, a free negro, was brought from Suffolk yesterday and lodged in Castle Thunder, for trial on the charge of carrying information to the enemy. Robert T. Moore, of the 18th Virginia Battalion, and five other soldiers, were lodged in the same place, to await sentence of court-martial. At the Libby Prison but one Yankee was received, and he belonged to Corcoran's old regiment, the 69th New York, and was captured a few days since near Suffolk, Va. A number of others were however, expected.
