‘“ [30] Jackson would not decide upon our suggestion at once? It was because he has to pray over it before he makes up his mind.” A moment after, the second returned to Jackson's quarters to get his sword, which he had forgotten, and as he entered found him on his knees praying.’ This is the whole story told by Dr. Dabney, who gives no names, as evidence of Jackson's unvarying attention to his religious duties.
