              [newspaper clipping]
  Among others who visited headquarters yesterday
to present a petition was a blood cousin of John
Morgan.  She is a beautiful young woman, sympa-
thizing altogether with the Rebels.  After she had
stated her case and was satisfied by Gen. Rosecrans
in person, she offered her hand and thanked him as
a woman should do.  Her petition was just and it
was justly granted.  During the interview she
stated that every male relative she had in the world
is in the Revel army.  Her husband is a surgeon;
her brother, St. Clair Morgan, is a captain, and sev-
eral cousins hold commissions.  One brother, Capt.
Sam. Morgan, was killed at Augusta Ky., and her
second cousin, Capt. Wash. Morgan, was mortally
wounded in a skirmish in Kentucky, and subse-
quently died.  Reference being made to John Mor-
gan, she indignantly denied that he had ever been
a guerrilla, and she went on to say that, whatever
else might be said of the famous John, �he was a
brave gentleman.�
