She said she had come to Alexandria and was staying there with a friend, waiting to see me. Can you wait there without difficulty until I can send down and see about this matter at Wytheville? She said she would thankfully, and that I would find her story correct. I immediately sent to Col.

I wrote him the story and asked him to investigate it and to purchase the title to that house in the name of Mrs. Mumford, and charge the amount to me, and telegraph me if it was all right. He telegraphed me within a day or two that the matter was as I had supposed, and he would attend to it. The morning I got that despatch, Mrs. Mumford came again to my office.

of similar meetings. We have yet to attend one characterized by so much harmony, and, as above stated, so spirited. After the adjournment of the meeting, notice was given that a secession pole would be raised. The crowd immediately retired to the spot, and we soon had the pleasure of seeing the banner of the Confederated States floating in the breeze.
