A statement is going the rounds of the papers . . .

. . . George D. Prentice is not the responsible editor of the Louisville Journal, the St. Louis Democrat contradicts it in authoritative terms, and says he is not only chief editor but chief proprietor.  His wife sympathizes with the Union cause, and devotes her money and time to the sick soldiers in the Louisville hospitals.  One of his sons is in the Southern Confederacy, but not two.

– Published in The Burlington Weekly Hawk-Eye, Burlington, Iowa, Saturday, March 22, 1862, p. 3
