A. C. T. to John C. R. Taylor, 1 Aug. [1863]

My husband received your letter today, requesting him to inquire for your Son Bennett. As he is on a parole it will be my pleasure to assist you in any way I can—I learned a week ago, that your Son was in the battle, and I immediately wrote a friend to search for him—The restrictions at that time...

Henry Gantt to John C. R. Taylor, 22 Sept. 1863

I was very glad to hear from you that there was a probability of Bennetts being exchanged—I have written to Commissioner Ould & stated to him that Bennett was my Senior Capt & how important it was to the Regt at this time to have his services. I truly hope the exchange may be effected ...

Francis Eppes to Maria J. Eppes (Shine), 20 July 1864

Well my ever dearest Maria, you are at last (if we may credit Fanns letter) safely mor moored in the haven of yr. hopes! and enjoying the pleasant company of yr. hospitable friends; and in anticipation the renovating influences of the salubrious & invigorating clime to whc you have flown. You...

Moncure Robinson to Bennett Taylor, 22 Dec. 1864

It seems to me some time since we heard from You, & this reminds me that it is longer since I have written You. I have been more dilatory than otherwise in doing so, from my inability to say anything on the subject of the special exchange. I am not without hope, in regard to it, though I fear...

Ellen W. Randolph Coolidge to Bennett Taylor, 10 Jan. 1865

your letter of 1st Jan. to Mr Coolidge is received. We have heard nothing farther of the exchange, but in such matters, delays are so unavoidable, that we still hope for success. Nothing will be wanting on our part to ensure it. I have heard nothing lately from our friends, except that a letter...

Ellen W. Randolph Coolidge to Bennett Taylor, 17 Feb. 1865

your letter of the 9th has been received. You had not then got Mr C–s enclosure, the answer to our representative, Mr Rice and the few words added by himself. Matters do not look very hopeful for your exchange. yet I hope on, and remember that “relief is often nearest when it appears at the...

Charlotte R. Robinson to Bennett Taylor, 18 Feb. 1865

I heard yesterday that quite a number of Officers had left Johnsons Island last Saturday & again last night some passed through here. I do not know that it is true. I presume you would have written to me if you had been amongst the number. I went last Monday to ask Mrs Trist to write to Mr...

Ellen W. Randolph Coolidge to Bennett Taylor, 21 Feb. 1865

My son Algernon received a letter from my brother Jefferson, yesterday, dated 3d February, perhaps even later news than you have received. All well. I write principally to say that I feel to-day more encouraged in the matter of your exchange than I have done yet. Mr C. who has been unremitting in...

Charlotte R. Robinson to Bennett Taylor, [4? 7?] Mar. 1865

Mrs Emley & myself returned from Washington last night. Gen. Hancock who is the principal person there for the arrangement of the exchange of prisoners promised us, to have you, & Lieut: Moncure, sent from Johnsons Island amongst the first that are now to leave. I am sorry I could not go,...

Jane H. Nicholas Randolph to Lucy Colston Taylor, 2 Aug. 1865

I offered my congratulations to Bennett this morning, & I cannot sleep to night without tendering the same to you my dear Lucy (as I hope you will allow me hereafter to address you) on the happy relation in which you stand to each other Bennett will tell you that I have loved him more than...
