Memoranda on arrest of E. E. Hughes.

E. E. Hughes.-Born in Rockbridge County, Va.; learned the carpenter's trade; lived two years in the South; visited his mother and removed to Iowa in 1850. Owns a farm which with stock is worth $7,000; deeded it to his mother. Having heard the people in Virginia were in great want he came to Virginia to take care of his mother. Crossed the Ohio into Cabell County. Got directions from Southern men how to get through the country. Started to go through but was arrested in Logan County. Says he is unwilling to take the oath of allegiance because he might lose his property. This man is candid and honest. If he had taken the oath I would have recommended his release. I must advise he be held as an alien enemy prisoner.
