My father had been pastor of a church in that city for four years during my childhood, and had been much beloved by his people, who received me with more than old Virginia hospitality. I was charmed with everything I saw and every one I met, except that I was shocked and saddened by meeting everywhere young men of my own age in military uniform.

We never met save on the two occasions mentioned and could not possibly have seen each other at Williamsburg more than a moment. The rank,
