    Mississippi Confederate POW's Spiritual Guide, The Soldier's Prayer Book (Philadelphia: Protestant Episcopal Book Society, n.d.), 64 pp., 4.5" x 3", brown paper wraps. Inscribed "Richmond Robinson: Camp Douglas / Ill / March the 17th 1865" on inside front cover. Worn covers, light foxing and some soiling. Overall good condition. Included are service records for Private Richmond L. Robinson, Co. "G", 35th Mississippi Infantry. (Some of the entries state "35th Alabama" in error.) Hopefully this well-thumbed little book gave comfort to Robinson as he endured the noxious atmosphere of Camp Douglas.
