Doc. 59: a Virginian who is not a traitor: response of Lieut. Mayo, U. S. N., to the proclamation of Gov. Letcher. U. S. Ship St. Mary's, Mare Island, Cal. To John Letcher, Governor of Virginia: Sir — I have this day seen for the first time an ordinance of the Convention issued--the injunction of secrecy being removed --in form of a proclamation by order of the Governor, by Geo. W. Munford, Secretary of the Commonwealth. One section of this ordinance reads thus: And that he (trfidy of Harper's Ferry and Gosport Navy Yard.
