From the Richmond Examiner, 7/28/1863

THE YANKEE PRISONERS, now in Richmond, number 4,300, of which number 3,309 are at the Belle Isle encampment. Several thousand were sent Northward last week. Very few additional prisoners were received yesterday from all sources. The Central train brought none, for a wonder. – The Gettysburg fountain of "blue bellies" has about run dry.
