Confederate Memoranda on William Smith, taken in Virginia, circa 1861-1862.

William Smith.-Born in Loudon; went to Maryland 17th of June. Says he staid below Frederickstown working on farm of his step-mother's brother. Several times came to Berlin. Crossed over 2d of August; returned 4th of August. Was not interrupted by the pickets. Crossed again when he was arrested. This is one of the men sent by General Hill. I refer to his letter and the affidavits filed with my last report, especailly Crumbaker's. The impression of this man's character made on me by his examination is that he is a bold, artful, unscrupulous man who went over to the enemy when the militia were called out. I think he is able to play the part of a spy. I recommend he be held as a prisoner.
