Bygones of Monroe:

Former Residents of Monroe in New Orleans

The former residents of Monroe, spoken of by Lt. Col. Clark, have also been heard from by their friends, direct.  A letter from Casper Kaiser, says at one time arrested as a spy and placed in the calaboose where he was kept 17 days, with continual threats to take off his head.  He was finally set at liberty through the influence of the people for whom he had been at work, they testifying to his good character; but the judge declared that politically he deserved the gallows.  During all of last summer he could find nothing to do, and was at last forced to join a company of militia in which he was made a Sergeant.  On the arrival of Butler’s expedition, he succeeded in cutting loose from them.
Lawrence Groessle has been absent about three years, and during the last 15 months has not been heard from.  His friends had nearly given him up for dead.
