Patrticulars respecting the five famale prisoners in Camp Douglas Prison, Illinois.

REBECCA PARRISH, born in Lee County, Georgia; about 28 years of age; has always lived in Sumter County, Georgia,till this last year; has been three years and a half married; her parents live in BARBOUR County, Alabama; removed with her husband, a soldier in the Confederate service, and two children to Island No. 10 about the first of March last. Her husband and two children had died by the middle of April, since which time she has lived under the protection of her brother, and on the 15th of April she was taken prisoner with her brother, a soldier in the Confederate service, at Island No. 10. Having no friends there and no money to take her home, she preferred remaining with her brother, although the medical men in charge at Madison, Wis., would have given her her liberty and sent her back as far as Cairo.
