Memoranda on arrest of M. L. Kendrick, Loudon, Virginia. 1862

M. L. Kendrick.-Born in Loudoun County,; lives eight miles from Leesburg in the direction of Fairfax Court-House. Arrested 3d August. Marketed to our camp at Fairfax Court-House. Was well acquainted with the men in Rogers' artiilery. Had a brother in that company who had been sick with the measles. Says the soldiers requested him to bring them some whisky. He bought four gallons; sold to two men each one pint. General Stuart ordered his whisky to be seized and arrested him. Before it was seized he gave two gallons to a man named Connell. The whisky was poured out. Says he is a Southern man. Would have volunteered, but when his brother left home he was the only person to take care of an aged and infirm mother and his sisters. No charge has been sent against this mali. His long confinement here is a severe punishment for his offense. I recommend his discharge on taking the oath of allegiance.
