Confederate Memoranda on William P. Flood, taken Virginia, Circa 1861-1862

William P. Flood.-Born in King George; raised in Jefferson County, Va.; lived in Winchester. Agent for several Virginia insurance companies. When General Jackson retreated from Winchester prisoner promised Colonel Ashby to procure a horse in Culpeper. He had some claims due his societies to collect in Culpeper. He made his escape from Winchester. He had a letter for one of Colonel Radford's men and rode through his lines to deliver it. Prisoner says he did not know he was acting improperly. He was arrested by Colonel Radford and sent on here. Lieutenant Turner testifies he has known prisoner for several years and he is a man of good character. I submit the letter received from Mr. [Alexander R.] Boteler in relation to this man. I have no doubt he is faithful to the South and recommend his discharge on taking the oath of allegiance.
