|Alexander Swift Pendleton to Anzolette Page regarding the inauguration of the Confederate President
|12 February 1862
|Pendleton, Alexander Swift (1840-1864)
|Writes to ask his mother if his sisters, Mary and Rose, may travel to Richmond, Virginia to attend the inauguration of Jefferson Davis as Confederate President. Humorously phrases the request in military terms, describing the request for a "furlough" and his asking as part of a "solemn conspiracy" for which she "will be ready to cry treason!" Notes that his sister has written to their father for permission also. Goes into details about money and where they will stay to allay her fears.
