What was found in a prayer-book.

The following was found written on the fly-sheet of a prayerbook in one of the churches in Louisville:

Hurrah for John Morgan! The Marion of the [46] South, following his footsteps as much so as the Apostles followed the footsteps of Christ.

“There shall be a Southern Confederacy, so saith the Apostle Paul. See third verse, chapter fourth, Acts of the Apostles.”

“Hurrah for Jeff Davis! and the Southern Confederacy!----the Lincoln hordes and Hessians; polluting the homes and lands of Southern men! Hurrah for Stonewall Jackson, the Deliverer of the Southern Soil, to our Southern Brethren.”
