Written by an officer who was captured at Winchester, Va., and who died as a P.O.W.!

From Libby Prison, Richmond, Virginia


2 pages, 5 x 8, in ink, written by Lieutenant Levi Lupton, to his wife.

Libby Prison, Jan. 4th, 1864

Dear wife,

After my love to you and well wishes for your welfare I will inform you that I have just recíd a letter from you dated on the 14th of Dec.in which you stated that you were all well which I was truly glad to hear, but sorry to have you fret yourself on my account for I tell you truly we have plenty to eat and that which is good and wholesome. Our coffee and tea we get from home as they are very scarce here and as for suffering with cold I have got along fine. Last Saturday was the coldest day known here for years yet I was very comfortable. My partner Lieut. Manning* and me have five blankets and three comforters between us so you see we have enough of bedding to keep us warm sure. You state that Father wanted to sell his farm which I was sorry to hear. Unless I was able to buy it for I do not like it to go to strangers. If I had the means I would buy it mighty quick. Tell him I think he had better hold on to it a while yet, at any rate to consider the matter. Well in regard to exchange I donít know what to think, but I hope it will be soon, so good-by Dear. May the Lord help you in this your time is the prayer of your loving husband.

Lieut. L. Lupton

[To:] Mrs. E.H. Lupton

Monroe Co.
Ohio

Staining and light wear. Desirable Yankee officer's P.O.W. letter written from the notorious Libby Prison by one of "the boys in blue" who would not survive the war!

* Lieutenant John S. Manning, was 19 years old when he enlisted on August 15, 1862, as 1st sergeant, and was mustered into Co. A, 116th Ohio Infantry. He was promoted to 2nd lieutenant, on November 19, 1862; he was captured on June 15, 1863, at Winchester, Va.; promoted to 1st lieutenant, September 8, 1864; he was exchanged on March 5, 1865; and mustered out of the service on June 14, 1865, at Richmond, Va.

Levi Lupton, was 39 years old, when he enlisted on July 25, 1862, at Columbus, Ohio, as a 2nd lieutenant. He was commissioned into Co. C, 116th Ohio Infantry, on September 19, 1862, at Gallipolis, Ohio. He was promoted to 1st lieutenant on June 13, 1863, but was never mustered at that rank because he was captured the next day, June 14, 1863, at Winchester, Va.
