Confederate Memoranda on arrest of Daniel Scully, approximately 1862

Daniel Scully.-Born in Ireland; came to Canada 1842. Returned to Ireland and came to New York about 1848. Lived in New York and Canada about ten years. Four years ago was in Virginia and worked for the Loudon and Hampshire road. Worked at Louisa Court-House. Went to Moore County, N. C. and worked for Sowers. Came to Richmond and worked near here. Last spring went back to North Carolina; then started to go back to New York and Canada. Is a wagon maker. Says he is still a British subject and not a citizen of the United States or Confederate States. Seems reluctant to go to work unless he can be better clothed than he is now. Desires to get to Canada. This man seems to be a harmless wanderer. Perhaps he had better remain in prison until something more can be learned about him.
