Washington, IX C. Feb. 3, 1889.
-.Vs your crty has recently had a
ntj-iinion of the Con federate veterasns,
ft may be interesting to relate s
incident of the closing scenes of tiw-
twar, as told of John S. Wise bv a
versatile story tellr of this city not
long ago. The las. cornniuniciitioB
that ever passe;! Itfsweer C?ot Lee
and Jefferson lAhf before the sur
rtntler at Apponmtor, was carried
by Johi Wi-ae, twff u the troops in
the field riear Famivrlle- ami the
government in Richmond. At that
time Wise was a boy, not quite nine
teen years old, and one can imagine
how very c-illow he must have been
in appearance at that age when now,
ut the age of forty-tiro, he lo:ks
like a boy still. When Wise started
mt with hw message from Davis it
was with little hope of erer reach
hig Lee, Tfcecowntry wasswarniiii"
with the triiunphamt troops of the
Northern armv, and throush these
hostile and jubilant forces the boy
; messenger had to pick his way. At
one time he swam his horse across a
stream with half a dozen Union
cavaliymen shooting at him; at
wner time barely escaped capture
in the woods or at the farm houses
as he stopped for food, and often
times he lay '-hid out" in the woods

Rut the thing that most imjiressed
itself iiKn his memory was his first
Hght of f(rd'rtl cavalry m the
march. A he was feeling his way
cauiiousiy upon the road running
along the bank of Appomattox river
one bright morning, he heard the
somui of mnsia ahead of him. He
hurriedly wishdrew up a rise beside
the ro.ul into a thick scrub oak
and pine undergrowth, where he
made himsvlf secure from observa
tion. Then, as the music came
nearer, he crept to the edge of the
rise, hugged he ground closely be-
uinu a log, and, e.p:ng over,
watched tire passing of a detach
ment of Sheridan's cavalry and
artillery. He had never seen the
Northern cavalry. He had onlv
knowledge of the worn-out and de
cimated cavalry of the Confederate;
a cavalry made up of half-starved
men and horses and nudes; a cavalry
in which the men were picturesque
in the ariety of tluir tatters and
rags, dirt and mixed equipments in
all, a sorry and forlorn looking sold
iery. The Federal troops wen
passing in quick trot in their pur-
1 hey laughed and jested and
Their carbines and sabres rattled a
merry accompaniment to the rumble
of the cannon wheels and the thun
