Memoranda on A. Bailey, taken in Virginia, circa 1861-1862

A. Bailey.-Says his name is A. Lincoln Bailey. Says he was elected President of the United States and went to Washington to discharge the duties of that office. Does not tell me how he got to Virginia. Says he was born in Pennsylvania; has lived in New York and New Hampshire. He says he was in Richmond some years since in the store of J. Winston Jones, who he says is now dead. Says he was once a watchman and timekeepr in Joseph R. Anderson's works. He says he was arrested near Charlottesville attempting to make his way to Washington through the Valley. I examined this man carefully and can discover no symptons of derangement. I think he is feigning derangement to conceal his true character. His own statement makes him and alien enemy and I think he is a very suspicious one. I recommend he be held as an enemy alien under suspicion of being a spy.
