Brigadier-General T. H. Holmes, Fort Caswell: My confidential aide, Mr. Winslow, will hand you this letter.
He will report to me any suggestions you have to make regarding the public defence.
I recommend him to the attention of yourself and the commandant of Fort Macon.
The same day a letter was written Marshall Parks at Norfolk, saying Winslow would call on him and give a verbal reply to a letter which Parks had written the Governor.
The last entry in this interesting book is to Governor Letcher, of Virginia, and says: This will be handed you by my confidential aide, Hon. W. Winslow, who will have communication with you upon public matters of interest to our respective governments.
He is charged, also, with a request to you to supply us with such cannon as you may have to spare and may be desirable to us.
note.—It will be seen that the State had up to April 23d 30,000 rifles (Springfields, calibre 58, mainly), seized in the Fayetteville arsenal; there were 2,000 in the hand
