Varina Davis, Jefferson Davis: Ex-President of the Confederate States of America, A Memoir by his Wife, Volume 2, Chapter 43: visit to New Orleans and admission to Fortress Monroe. (search)
cannot receive people as guests who hold Mr. Davis a prisoner. What this judicious, capable, delicate-minded man did for us could not be computed in money, or told in words; he and his gentle wife took the sting out of many indignities offered to us in our hours of misfortune. They were both objects of affection and esteem to Mr. Davis as long as he lived. Our sister, Miss Howell, came to the fort and remained with us, much to Mr. Davis's delight. The Right Reverend Bishop Lynch, Father O'Keefe, from Norfolk, the Reverends William Brand, Barton, and Minnegerode, the latter our beloved pastor, came often to see Mr. Davis, as well as charming people from Baltimore, Richmond, Norfolk, and the surrounding country; they generally remained to dinner, and left in the evening boat; wine and delicacies of all kinds were pressed upon us by our friends. The Bishop of Montreal sent green chartreuse from his own stores, and to this powerful digestive stimulant the little Mr. Davis ate was

Y., then United States Senator. The Second was ably officered and was one of the most famous of the New York cavalry regiments. Colonel Hull was killed at Cedar Creek, and Major O'Keefe fell in the final campaign. The Second was recruited from New York City, Long Island, Rensselaer and Washington counties, with two companies from Indiana, and two from Connecticut. The term of enlistment expired in September, 1864, when it returned home,leaving about 350 men in the field composed of recruits with unexpired terms, and veterans who had reenlisted. These men were organized into a battalion of four companies, and eight more companies composed of fresh recruits were added.
enemy is drawn up in line of battle about two miles to our front--one brigade in sight. As soon as I am sure that Rohrersville is occupied I shall move forward to attack the enemy. This may be two hours from now. If Harper's Ferry is fallen — and the cessation of firing makes me fear that it has — it is my opinion that I should be strongly reinforced. W. B. Franklin, Maj.-Gen. Commanding 6th. Corps. Gen. G. B. McClellan. Sept. 15, 11 A. M. general: I have received your despatch by Capt. O'Keefe. The enemy is in large force in my front, in two lines of battle stretching across the valley, and a large column of artillery and infantry on the right of the valley looking towards Harper's Ferry. They outnumber me two to one. It of course will not answer to pursue the enemy under these circumstances. I shall communicate with Burnside as soon as possible. In the meantime I shall wait here until I learn what is the prospect of reinforcement. I have not the force to justify an atta
in October, 1864, and in that of the death of the gallant Lieutenant Meigs, my Chief Engineer, who was killed while examining and mapping the country near Bridgewater just above Harrisonburg. This young officer was endeared to me on account of his invaluable knowledge of the country, his rapid sketching, his great intelligence, and his manly and soldierly qualities. I would also here especially mention the loss of two of my most efficient staff officers, Lieutenant-Colonels Kellogg and O'Keefe, both of whom died, after having passed through the dangers and privations of years of warfare; the former of fever consequent upon excessive labor during the campaign from Petersburg to Appomattox, the latter from wounds received at the battle of Five Forks. The report of the march from Winchester to Petersburg, to engage in the final campaign, has heretofore been furnished, but I consider it, in fact, a sequel to this. I attach hereto a abstract of ordnance and ordnance stores captu

Patriotic Clergy. The Rev. N. A. Okeson, of the Protestant Episcopal Church, in Norfolk, has joined a troop of Cavalry, and Rev. Mr. O'Keefe the Roman Catholic priest of that town is the captain of a volunteer company. When God thus calls upon the ministry to defend the holy cause, it must prevail.

him. After his departure she made three attempts before she succeeded in getting back to Norfolk. Finally, however, she succeeded, and a few days after her arrival she was summoned before Beast Batter, and obeyed the summons, accompanied by Father O'Keefe, of whose church she was a member. Butler questioned her closely as to where she had been, and what she witnessed in the Confederate States. She respectfully declined answering his questions, upon which he angrily threatened that he "would soon conquer her stubbornness." --Father O'Keefe here interfered, and informed Butley that it "was not stubbornness, but a regard for her promise to observe secrecy on such matters, without giving which she could not pass through the Confederate lines." He was insultingly told to mind his own business, and the drunken tyrant swore that, "before she passed from his hands, she should be transparent enough to see through her and enable him to learn all she knew."She was sent a prisoner to the Custo
ortsmouth: Rev. Mr. Wingfield, who was sentenced by Butter to sweep Portsmouth's streets in Penitentiary costume, was afterwards persuaded by Butler to take the oath, said persuasion consisting probably in a threat of Hatteras. Revs Mr. O'Keefe and Plunkett, the Catholic Pastors of Norfolk and Portsmouth, received telegraphic dispatches last Sunday fortnight from Butter, asking 1st, whether they had taken the oath; 2d, whether they said the usual prayer for the President of the United States before vespers.--Mr. O'Keefe replied that he had not taken the oath, as he owed no allegiance to Lincoln, and as to the prayer before vespers, he had never heard of H. Mr. Plunkett, who has not taken the oath, repaired to Fortress Monroe and had an interview with the Beast; which resulted in his being allowed "time to reflect." With these exceptions, all the clergy in the two titles have been forced to take the oath. It is reported that the magnificent mansion of Mrs W E Taylor is
