Confederate Memoranda on Arrest of Joseph Plaskett, Fairfax, Virginia.

Joseph Plaskett.-Born in England. Lived in Fairfax nearly eight years. Has remained closely at home since the war began. Has only once in ten weeks been to mill. Says he is friendly to the Southern cause. Gave one valuable horse to a Fairfax company of cavalry; another impressed for the Southern army. Has had no communication of any kind with the enemy. Mr. Huntt and Mr. Thomas proved him to be a man of good character. I recommend his discharge on taking the oath of allegiance.
