Excerpt from Between the Lines: Secret Service Stories Told Fifty Years After
Fifty years ago! Gracious me! It makes me think of my age to talk of it. Yes, just fifty years ago was enacted the greatest tragedy the world ever saw, the CIVIL war.
I entered the service ... at twenty and one-half years of age and served th'ree and one-half years.
At different times I have told of some of my experiences, which seemed to interest. Sometimes I have talked to literary men, story writers, who have expressed a desire to write me up in maga zines and newspapers, but lack of the romantic in my make up, notwithstanding romance might be seen in the stories which to me were but cold facts, has kept me from consenting.
