Heck, Mrs. Lucinda Jones, His son's wife, to whom he was deeply attached, and to whom he wrote many touchingly beautiful letters, full of the consolations and hopes of the Gospel, died while her husband (General W. H. F. Lee) was in a Northern prison, and on his return General Lee wrote him the following: camp, Orange county, April 24, 1864. I received last night, my dear son, your letter of the 22d. It has given me great comfort. God knows how I loved your dear, dear wife, how sweet her memory is to me, and how I mourn her loss. My grief could not be greater if you had been taken from me. You were both equally dear to me. My heart is too full to speak on this subject, nor can I write. But my grief is for ourselves, not for her. She is brighter and happier than ever—safe from all evil, and awaiting u

And I did not hesitate to reciprocate the courtesy, when men of my command wanted to unite with other denominations on a profession of repentance towards God and faith towards the Lord Jesus Christ. I remember that my good Brother Witherspoon told me, one day, that he had a good joke on Brother Jones, which was to the following effect: I had gone over to Davis's Mississippi Brigade, at Brother Witherspoon's invitation, and had cut the ice on a mill-pond, at Madison Run Station, Orange county, Virginia, and baptized a number of men. In the service I had read, without note or comment, some of the passages of Scripture bearing on the ordinance. The next day, one of the men, who had been active in the revival meetings, went to Chaplain Witherspoon and said: I do not think that you ought to invite Brother Jones to come over here any more. Why not? What has Brother Jones done that is wrong? Well, you know that, while there is no law or rule on the subject, it is generally under

and manifested the deepest concern for the salvation of his men, and the liveliest hope that we were about to be blessed with a general revival. But soon tidings came that Burnside had relieved McClellan and was moving on Fredericksburg—that Lee, with Longstreet's Corps, was hastening to confront him—and that Jackson was needed on the Rappahannock. The order to move is at once given, and the foot cavalry march, with their swinging stride, through the mountains and down through Madison, Orange, Spottsylvania, and Caroline counties, to take their appropriate place on the line of the Rappahannock, and bear their heroic part in the great battle of Fredericksburg on the memorable 13th of December. We had some precious seasons of worship on that march, and while awaiting the opening of the battle of Fredericksburg, and in laboring among the wounded of the battle, we found a number who had recently found Jesus. But, of course, the active campaign, the battle, and the severe winter w

Those were happy times, and long to be remembered. Old Blue Run Church will not soon be forgotten. Some of those men you had the pleasure of immersing in Orange county. These men held out well and went to work for Christ and, when they came home, united with the Church. Among the prominent workers in these meetings were thed religious papers among our men, which were generally very readily, and sometimes gladly, received. I was present a part of the time (luring the revival in Orange county after our troops returned from the battle of Gettysburg. There was great interest on the subject of religion then through our whole division. The preaching o
