Memoranda on arrest of Seth Jarrett

Seth Jarrett.-Brother of the above [Oliver Jarrett]; makes the same statement with his brother, except he says when Wise's Legion was on the Kanawha he worked to fix guns and swords for Slusher Brady, Augustas Manser and other persons who were going to join the Southern army. Will take the oath of allegiance. I recommend his discharge on taking the oath. Note that these men were in the hospital when the other Paint and Cabin Creek men were examined, and the general remarks I made as to those men apply to the two now under consideration, viz, I think all these men were removed as a measure of precaution when our army was on the Kanawha.
