Taylor, Adjutant General of the army in front of Fredericksburg, signed to the document, was pronounced by the Paymaster to be a forgery, and thereupon the party presenting the pay-roll was lodged in Castle Lightning, in charge of Capt. Booker. It is thought that there is a Captain Bennett attached to the 4th regiment, but the Paymaster did not believe that the individual who presented the pay-roll was the same man.
