Iv.--origin of the Lee tomatoes.by W. Roy Mason, Major, C. S. A. one day in June, 1862, General Lee rode over to General Charles W. Field's headquarters at Meadow Bridge and asked for me. I would say here that on leaving home to enter the Army I carried a family letter of introduction to General Lee; and on account of that, and also my relationship to Colonel Charles Marshall, an aide on his staff, my visits at army headquarters were exceptionally pleasant. When General Lee approached me on this occasion, he said: Captain, can General Field spare you a little while? I replied, Certainly, General; what can I do for you? I have some property, he answered, in the hands of the enemy, and General McClellan has informed me that he would deliver it to me at any time I asked for it. Then, putting aside his jesting manner, he told me that his wife and Miss Mary Lee, his daughter, had been caught within the Federal lines at the White House, the residence of General W. H. F. Lee, his son

From a photograph of the painting by the Prince De Joinville, 1862, made from personal observation: persons represented: 1. Gen. F. J. Porter; 2. Gen. G. W. Morell; 3. Gen. George G. Meade (on horseback in the distance), and the following aides-de-camp; 4, Comte De Paris; 5. Colonel Radowitz; 6. Major Hammerstein; 7. Duc De Chartres; 8. Captain Mason. The view is from the left of the Federal position, looking in a north-westerly direction up the Chickahominy, shown at the left. The out-buildings (on the right) belonged to the Watts house, which, during the thick of the fight, was the headquarters of General Fitz John Porter. The wooded ravine in the middle of the picture was the point of contact of this part of the opposing lines. The horsemen in the swampy bottom-lands are intended to represent Cooke's Union cavalry.

The Confederates (the 55th and 60th Virginia regiments) advanced out of formation, in wedge shape, and with trailing arms, and began a hand-to-hand conflict over the guns, which were finally yielded to them [see p. 413]. service together in the 4th infantry, I moved to offer my hand as he dismounted. At the first motion, however, I saw he did not regard the occasion as one for renewing the old friendship, and I merely offered him some of my staff as an escort to Richmond. Major W. Roy Mason, who served on the staff of General C. W. Field, C. S. A., gives this account of the capture of General McCall at Glendale, on the evening of June 30th: we occupied as headquarters [at the close of the battle] the center of an old road that ran through a dense pine-wood which the enemy had occupied only two hours before, and the dead and wounded were lying about us. General field asked me to remain with the other members of the staff, and volunteered to go down to a water-course, w

Marching on Manassas. by W. Roy Mason, Major, C. S. A. On the 23d of August, as our brigade (Field's, of Hill's division) was passing through an oak forest several miles from our starting-point in the morning, General Field and his staff riding leisurely at its head, we were hailed by General Fitzhugh Lee, who, with his staff, had alighted on one side of the road. He requested us to dismount, as he had something to show us. He then slipped behind a big oak-tree, and, in a moment or two, emerged dressed in the long blue cloak of a Federal general that reached nearly down to his feet, and wearing a Federal general's hat with its big plume. This masquerade was accompanied by a burst of jolly laughter from him that might have been heard for a hundred yards. We inquired as to what this meant, and he told us that the night before he had made a raid upon Pope's Headquarters, near Catlett's Station, with orders to capture him. He had surrounded his tent, but upon going in had found only

Notes of a Confederate staff-officer. by W. Roy Mason, Major, C. S. A. Fredericksburg was the first great battle that I saw in its entire scope. Here the situation of the country — a champaign tract inclosed in hills — offered the opportunity of seeing the troops on both sides, and the movements down the entire lines. I witnessed the magnificent charges made on our left by Meagher's Irish Brigade, and was also a sorrowful witness of the death of our noble T. R. R. Cobb of Georgia, who fels who were visitors in Fredericksburg to inquire for her. Being told of our visit, she requested her son-in-law to ask me in. When jocularly asked by him if she was going to invite a gentleman into her sick-room, the old lady replied: Yes, ask Major Mason in,--we were old soldiers together. After Burnside had withdrawn his forces across the Rappahannock, General Lee rode over to Marye's Heights, where I then was, and said to me: Captain, those people [meaning the enemy] have sent over a flag

hich had been cut off—Colonel Conner, afterwards General Conner, being the senior, and in command of it, attacking at the same time in flank. This ended the fighting for that day. Our losses, as might be inferred from such open, hard fighting, were heavy—the enemy's, though, much more so. Among the casualties in my division which now, at this distance of time, recur to me were: Colonel Little, commanding Eleventh Georgia, wounded; Colonel Jack Brown, of Georgia, my aide-de-camp, Lieutenant W. Roy Mason, badly wounded, falling into the hands of the enemy, and General Gregg's aide de-camp killed. Brigadier-General Girardy was killed early in the action, at the time his brigade broke. He had only a few days before been raised from the rank of Major and assigned to that brigade, and fell in his first action with his new rank. He was said to be a gallant, meritorious officer. Previous to this battle being fought General R. E. Lee had arrived from Petersburg; but he did not take c

April 26, 1863. The facts from Port Royal seem to be that on Thursday about a hundred Yankees creamed over and destroyed the solue with which some of our soldiers had been fishing and the boats, and burned five wagons carried off the mules, robbed several houses, and returned. We had only a few cavalrymen in the neighborhood. It is reported that a large force of Yankee infantry have marched through King George county, and their artillery and cavalry are seen in large numbers opposites. Fort Moyal Many citizens of King George county have been arrested, and sent to the prison ship at Aquia Creek. Among others I have the names of Col. E. T. Tayloe, W. Roy Mason, Charles Mason, Dr. Stuart, Dr. Hone, and others. Messrs. Charles Jait and Lawrence Washington of Westmoreland, were arrested previously. No news here. The sun and wind to day have dried the roads very much. We are quiet but expectant, hopeful and confident. My private opinion still is the Yankees are leaving.
tation has since been re-established. Signal Hill is on the plantation of Mr. Henry Cox, about two miles and a half below Chaffin's Bluff. Our little fleet of ironclads performed their work effectually, and their gallant officers and crews are entitled to much credit for the accuracy of their fire. The report that Brigadier-General Chambliss was killed in the fight of Tuesday is confirmed. His dead body was sent into our lines by the enemy on Wednesday under flag of truce. Captain W. Roy Mason, jr., of General Fields's staff, is badly wounded and a prisoner. He has been sent to Fortress Monroe. Colonel Oates, of Georgia, (Fields's division,) and Lieutenant-Colonel Carmichael, of the Twenty-eighth Georgia regiment, were also badly wounded in Tuesday's battle. Lieutenant Lewis, of the Eighteenth North Carolina regiment, Lane's brigade, was killed. The enemy has possession of Newmarket or Jennings's Hill, at the intersection of the Newmarket and Long Bridge roads, and occ
