George Bancroft, History of the United States from the Discovery of the American Continent, Vol. 10, Chapter
From Norfolk.[special correspondence of the Dispatch.] Norfolk, Va., July 3, 1861. I yesterday saw the letter of Pyle, the accomplice of one C. W. Bryan, mention of whom was made as attempting to give information to the enemy. It was written to his mother in Washington, and is filled with falsehoods from beginning to end. He says that he will be forced to take the cath of allegiance to the South, if he remains in Portsmouth — a thing he will never do, until starvation shall be the mea
allusion to the Stars and Stripes on the Lincoln ships in our waters, but says he cannot get to them.
He longs to be with the hordes of Abolition, and would gladly assist in the subjugation of our soil.
He says there are but 7,000 troops here.
Pyle, when last seen, was going down the river in a small boat, and has so far escaped the vigilance of the police.
I hear that a man, whose name I did not learn, was arrested as a spy on yesterday, and brought to headquarters, Col. Huger.
