We, the undersigned, in behalf of the prisoners confined in Melville Prison, beg leave to express their highest approbation of the official conduct of Mr. Mitchell, agent for American prisoners of war at this depot, and to return him our sincere thanks for his exertions in our behalf, and of those who were so unfortunate as to be sent to England, as we are confident that nothing on the part of Mr. Mitchell was omitted to prevent their going.
Signed in behalf of all the officers confined at the depot of Melville Island.
