Memoranda on arrest of Elias Beach, Fairfax, Virginia. 1862

Elias Beach.-Says he was born in Fairfax. Lives two miles and a half from Occoquan within our lines. Passed our lines once to go to mill at Accotink. Has had no communication with the enemy. Has not been to Alexandria since the middle of June, when he went to bring from Alexandria the cousin of his wife, Alfred Beach. Alfred Beach was a soldier in the Confederate service. Messrs. Huntt and Thomas proved him to be a man of good character. I recommend his discharge.
