[It is said that the Confederates Captured]

The Illustrated London News, vol. 44, no. 1262, p. 555.

June 4, 1864

It is said that the Confederates captured at Mansfield two waggons loaded with paper collars, and that General Dick Taylor returned the collars through a flag of truce, with a letter to General Banks, in which he said, "I have boiled, baked, and stewed these things, and can do nothing with them. We cannot eat them. They are a luxury for which we have no use, and I would like, therefore, to exchange them for a like quantity of hard tack."
