September 27, 1865. Letter from Judah Benjamin defending Confederate treatment of Union prisoners; Alabama state legislature repeals order of secession declaring it null and void; heated debate over the abolition of slavery. Richmond Times quoted as saying that freed Blacks do not want to work. Five Catholic priests in St. Louis arrested for preaching without having taken the oath of allegiance; soldiers’ fairs are being held to raise money to help returning, wounded soldiers. Engagements beginning with the Indians around Fort Lawrence.  Detailed report on the proceedings of Captain Wirz’s trial in Andersonville - testimony about the abysmal treatment of prisoners; some testimony for the defense - most interesting. A large eight-page paper containing important post-war news, in overall excellent condition with some moderate separate of outside pages at left fold.
