Memoranda on arrest of Dr. P. Lawrence, Fayette County, Virginia. 1862.

Dr. P. Lawrence.-Was born in Montgomery County, Va.; removed to Fayette near two years since. He was arrested going to join the camp of Virginia militia. One Light had received a letter from Colonel Coleman requesting all the men from his vicinity to join the militia who could do so, and in consequence of this letter he started and was arrested on his way. Colonel Coleman proves that while he considered it dangerous to send a draft for the militia in that vicinity he did write such a letter, and that after his removal to Fayette he has conducted himself as a peacable citizen. Mr. W. Staples proves that while he lived in Montgomery County Lawrence was faithful to the South. He voted against secession, but is opposed to the Wheeling government and supports the Confederate Government. I recommend he be discharged on taking the oath of allegiance.
