Rebel Poisoning

More Rebel Poisoning        A letter dated Alexandria, Va., 5th  from a young  soldier on the way to join the 13th Massachusetts regiment, gives the following warning to beware of rebel women:  –“On the railroad between Baltimore and Washington, three members of one of the companies were poisoned by eating pies and cakes sole by women, and one died in ten minutes after eating an apple thus poisoned.”   Is there to be no end to such atrocities?
