you declined answering this question: "Do you call yourself a loyal man in letter and spirit to-day?"
Mr. A — I do not decline to answer now. If I were to put my own interpretation upon it is should say I am; but I don't know, sir.
General.--Well, sir, perhaps, I can teach you. Now, sir, what is the name of that gentleman who had taken the oath, and while coming out of the Custom House with you, made the remark that he "would like to spit upon the Northern Yankees."
Mr. A.--Mr Chas Reid.
I declined to answer on my former examinant on because I had not his consent to tell, sir; but since that I have seen him, and he has given me his consent to mention his name.
General — Where is Mr. Reld?
Mr. A — He is in Norfolk.
General.--(To an Aid.) Telegraph to Col Whelden, (Provost Marshal, Norfolk,) to arrest Mr. Charles Reid and send him here.
He lives on Main street.
General — He stated that as he came out from taking the oath?
Mr. A — Yes. sir.
