Your friend, Jefferson Davis. Before the receipt of the foregoing letter of the President, General Johnston addressed him as follows: headquarters, Manassas, September 12, 1861. Sir: I have had the honor to receive through the War Department a copy of the proceedings of Congress on August 3r, 1861, confirming the nominations made by the President of the Confederate States of five Generals of the Confederate Army and fixing their relative rank.

I beg to state further, with the most profound respect for b

Let us once more fling to the breeze the proud standard of Kentucky. In every valley and on every hill-top let its folds be kissed by the breezes of Heaven. Let our lone star shine, an emblem of hope, from the deep sky-blue of our banner, over the brothers who join in the grasp of friendship; and let the soldier's motto of our State bespeak, under the Providence of God, the strength of the cause which He commits to our hands.
