Confederate Memoranda on William H. Williamson, Virginia, circa 1861-1862

William H. Williamson (heretofore examined.)-I return herewith a pencil note received from Williamson. He expresses a desire to go to work here as a shoemaker if he cannot return home. I recommend his release on conditions he does not go within our lines on the Potomac without special permission of the commanding general to go there and remove his family. If it would not be improper I would suggest whenever this can be done it is the best diposition which can be made of all persons on the theater of action who may have incurred the suspicion of the commanding officers.
