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, 7 1/4 x 9 1/2, in pencil, written by Lieutenant Levi Lupton, to his wife.

Libby Prison, Sept. 11th, 1863

Dear wife,

After my love to you and the Children I will inform you that I recíd two letters from you today dated on the 22nd of August and the other on the 28th. I was very glad to hear from you, but sorry to hear that the babe was sick and Margy so poorly, but I trust the Good Lord will spare you all until I shall get home. This is my daily prayer and I try to exercise faith that it will be answered, but how soon I donít know for we cannot know anything about it until the time comes, but I trust the Lord will answer the fervent prayers that ascend here daily for deliverance. Dear am quite well and have plenty to eat though I have to buy some things. I want you and my friends to send me a small box of rations. You may make some preparations for it but donít send it until you get another letter from me for I may be at home pretty soon. You can [get] J.F. Hanson [and] Wm. Laurence to fix it up for you. If I stay here much longer I shall want 2 cotton shirts either check or calico, 2 pr. socks is all the clothing I shall need. Make the shirts without buttons. Tiptonís girls will help you if you need help. Dear please send me the following articles, 3 lbs. coffee scorched and ground, 4 lbs. sugar, extract of coffee, 1 lb. tea, 1 qt. pepper, 1 qt. spice, ground cinnamon, 1 bottle catsup, 1 small can apple butter, 1 small can peach or cherry butter, 1 bottle stomach bitter, 4 dozen sheets paper, 2 dozen envelopes is all. Do not send until you hear from me.

Your loving husband,

Lieut. L. Lupton

[To:] Mrs. E.H. Lupton
Jerusalem
Monroe Co.
Ohio

Staining and fold wear. Some of the words on page two are light and illegible. Officer's letter written from the notorious Libby Prison by one of "the boys in blue" who would not survive the war!

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. He spent time confined in Libby Prison, Richmond, Va., and at Macon, Ga., and Charleston, S.C., where he died on September 12, 1864.
