Memoranda on arrest of Oliver Jarrett

Oliver Jarrett.-Lives on Cabin Creek, Kanawha County, six miles above its mouth. Voted against secession, but when State seceeded went with it. Has never had anything to do with Northern troops. Once saw a party passing down the creek, but he kept out of their way. Has been from home once to buy groceries. Went to Malden; saw no Northern troops there. Willing to take the oath of allegiance. I recommend this man be discharged on taking the oath.
