was apparently calm and collected, but very reticent, only replying to the committee that he would communicate with us at the residence of Mr. Paul, in the city of Petersburg, that (Sunday) night at 10 o'clock. This place was suggested as Major Giles B. Cook, who was a member of General Lee's staff, was a kinsman or connection of Mr. Paul, and a frequent visitor at his house.

Zzzhow they Bridged the Blackwater. When we reached this bridge we were halted and dismounted to await the arrangements being made by the pioneer people for us to cross.

Hayes, afterwards President of the United States, commanding one of his brigades; and with General Cook was Major William McKinley, of Ohio, on his staff, who may be President of the United States unless something else happens.
