I can assure you of a cordial welcome and the sympathy of early friends. Most truly yours, R. E. Lee. Mr. W. W. Corcoran. White Sulphur Springs, 14 August, 1869. My Dear Sir — I gratefully acknowledge the receipt of eight hundred and five dollars, the proceeds of the concert given by Madam Wieller, Mrs. McDowell, Misses Jones and Heald and Hon.

McHenry) that the South Carolina prisoners were notified that they could either take the oath or submit to the drawing of lots. Some weak minded ones yielded, but the majority remained firm. We were told after the drawing was over that it was for hostages to be retained by the United States Government for the safe return of three negroes, who, they affirmed, had been captured by the Confederate authorities in Charleston harbor. The unfortunate men selected by this drawing were Williams, McDowell and Cline,of the Second South Carolina cavalry, who were then confined in the old Carroll Prison, at Washington, District of Columbia.

From our quarters at Fort McHenry we had a delightful view of the city of Baltimore and suburbs; also of Fort Marshall, s

But the editor of the Nation caps the climax in disposing of Captain Judson by the following note: The case in regard to the breastplates seems closed. Mr. Henry C. Wayne, formerly in charge of the Bureau of Clothing, Equipage and Equipment of the Quartermaster-General's Office, United States army, writes to the Savannah Morning News, of July 19, that they were introduced into the army shortly before the rebellion, by General McDowell, for the protection of our officers and men in Indian fighting against lances, arrows and armes blanches generally. He had borrowed the idea from the French Cuirassicrs, during a trip to Europe for purposes of inspection.--Ed. Nation. We may add that our Southern papers have teemed with proofs that the aforesaid breastplates were frequently worn by Federal soldiers during the war, and if any one is still skeptical, if he will call at the office of the Southern Historical Society we

He was an intelligent young man, who guessed he had seen enough of war re like a witch than a Major-General. He became much excited, pointed out Jackson's position, General Shields', and General McDowell's, who was then at Warrenton, to act as McClellan's right wing. Then, with an ugly oath, he said: This great wagon 862. General R. S. Ewell: Your dispatch received. Hold your position — don't move. I have driven General Milroy from McDowell; through God's assistance, have captured most of his wagon train. Colonel S. B. Gibbons, Tenth Virginia, killed. Forwar has Providence to do with Milroy's wagon train? Mark my words, if this old fool keeps this thing up, and Shields joins McDowell, we will go up at Richmond! I'll stay here, but you go and do all you can to keep these people from getting together, a
