State Convention. (search)
State Convention. Wednesday, Nov. 27, 1861. The Convention was opened with prayer by the Rev. Dr. Burrows, of the First Baptist Church. The Cash of Judge Pitts. Mr. Morris submitted the following report: The Committee appointed to inquire into the loyalty of Judge E. P. Pitts to the State of Virginia and to the Confederate States, have examined such testimony as they were able to obtain in this city, and while the evidence before them is calculated to cast strong suspicion on the loyalty of Judge Pitts, yet in their opinion it would not justify his removal from office without affording him an opportunity to defend himself. They therefore ask to be discharged from the further consideration of the matter, and that the General Assembly be requested to investigate the subject. But in as much as it may be impossible to give notice to Judge Pitts by personal service of the process, they submit the accompanying ordinance for the purpose of supplying that defect.
