Mobile Advertiser & Register
June 11, 1861
learn from the San Antonio (Texas)
Ledger that in consequence of afflicting domestic intelligence received by Col.
Reeve, U. S.
army, Col. Van Dorn has extended the limits of Col. Reeveís patrol beyond the
limits of the Confederate States.† Col.
Reeve, it will be recollected, commanded the body of U.S. troops recently taken
prisoners by Col. Van Dornís command.
When any U. S. army
officer deals as generously with a prisoner of war as Col. Van Dorn has done
with Col. Reeve, we will certainly notice the fact.--N. O. Pic.
