Confederate Memoranda on arrest of Thompson Moulding, Washington D. C.

Thompson Moulding.-Born in Fairfax County, Va.; has lived in Washington since December, 1858. Boatman. was taken in November or early December on a wood boat at Accotink, seeking a load of wood to take to Washington. His second trip. The captain and another hand escaped. Says he could not make a living in any other way. Says he holds up for the South. He hesitates much about taking the oath of allegiance, unless he can be sent to his sister's in Fairfax. He is ignorant, and something of his reluctance may be from ignorance. He says he will be forty-five the 21st February. He looks like a man of thirty to thirty-five. As this man was taken in an illicit commerce with the enemy, and he does not clearly show an attachment to our cause, I think he should be held as a prisoner of war.
