FWNCrouch from newspaper clipping

 'So I. moved on to Richmond, Va„ undertaking the same position in Dr. Minnegarode's Episcopal Church, St. Paul’s, and was promptly recompensed by a large class of teaching, which, with my salary, gave me an income of four thousand dollars per annum. My success here was nipped in the bud by the invasion of Colonel Ellsworth and his zou­ aves, styled "Pet Lambs of New York.” This marauding expedition, enjoining the murder of Jackson, hotelkeeper of Alexandria, Va., so exasperated me on principles of right and freedom that I joined the Confederate cause by enlisting in the First Regiment, Richmond Grays, Infantry. We were ordered to Norfolk after the destruction of the Cumberland and other shipping, and the firing of the Portsmouth navy yards. English principles made me a Confederate soldier, and under that holy inspiration I fought in every conflict throughout the State of Virginia, from Manassas to Appomattox. I was never sick a day, never absent a day, and never reported, awfl’ never had a furlough during the whole war.'
