except such as were declared exchanged by Exchange Notice No. 6, Sep-

Agent of Exchange.
HEADQUARTERS DEPARTMENT OF VIRGINIA,
Fort Monroe, October 17, 1863.
Hon. R. OULD, Agent of Exchange, Richmond, Va.:
SIR: On the 22d of May, 1863, Lieutenant-Colonel Ludlow, then agent
of exchange for the United States, inclosed you copies of General
Orders, No. 49, and No. 100, of War Department, announcing regula-
tions and instructions for the government of the U. S. forces in the field
in the matter of paroles, stating that these orders and the cartel are to
govern our forces. When the cartel conflicts with the orders they must
beset aside. The cartel requires that prisoners of war shall be delivered
at certain named places, and if they are not so delivered the paroles can-
not be valid.
In consequence of the usage which had governed both parties up to
that time, instructions were subsequently issued that paroles given
before the 22d of May should be considered valid, though deliveries had
not been made as required by the cartel.
In order to the putting in force these instructions it was not neces-
sary to ask your consent. We were only bound to notify you that from
that time the cartel would be rigidly adhered to by us, and the same
course would be exacted of the Confederate authorities. If you wish
paroles recognized when the parties were not delivered at the places
named in the cartel you " ask that paroles not in conformity with the
stipulations of the cartel should be regarded as valid."
I will now proceed to show you that your declaration of September
12 was not in accordance with the cartel. Your reference to acts of
Lieutenant-Colonel Ludlow does not sustain you, for according to your
own letter Lieutenant-Colonel L. was declaring an exchange to cover a
"balance due" on declarations previously made by you.
Here’s what’s next.
