Memoranda on arrest of Matthew Milstead, Virginia. 1862

Matthew Milstead.-Sent with the two other person's above named [James C. Kelly and Robert Allen] above. This man is in the hospital, extremely sick, and his examination was consequently very imperfect. He represented himself to be a secessionist and firmly friendly to our cause. Colonel Brawner proves he was a man of good character, friendly to the South, and who voted for the President of the Confederate States and a member of the Confederate Congress. This man is in such feeble health that his longer confinement will endanger his life. I recommend his discharge on taking the oath of allegiance.
