After conversational discussion, it was agreed to meet at the same place one week from that date. Meantime, each of us agreed to canvass among friends and bring them in to help. Next week forty of us assembled, (among them were ten former generals, seven colonels two lieutenant generals, one major, seven captains, two first lieutenants, six medical officers and three members who had been in the Confederate Congress.) and the noble and able Presbyterian divine, Dr. B.M.
