From the Richmond Dispatch, 7/19/1864, p.1, c 5

Robbery. On Sunday night the storeroom of Mrs. Virginia Henson, living on Marshall street, near Buchanan's Spring, was broken into and robbed of a large lot of bacon, lard, sugar, butter, &c. Mrs. H was from home all day on Sunday until about 10:00 o'clock at night so it is probable that some of the servants in the neighborhood who were cognizant of her absence committed the robbery.
