The foregoing roll was made from memory by C. B. Price, a mem- ber of the old company, who now resides at Hansonville, Russell county, Va.

I have been at work on it for one year. If any name has been omitted or is spelled incorrectly, I hope it will be reported to me, as I wish the roster to be complete before it is impossible to get it, as the survivors will have soon passed away.

C. B. Price was corporal of Company C, 37th Regiment, Virginia Infantry.

Company C was enlisted in Russell county, Va., April, 1861, went immediately to the front, and was in the war from start to finish.

[From the Richmond, Va., Times-Dispatch, Jan. 12, 1904.]



Rev. Dr. J. William Jones writes The Times- Dispatch this inter- esting letter in connection with the death of General Gordon:

i. In publishing my sketch of General Gordon, your printers make me quote from General R. E. Lee, instead of General R. E. Rodes, as saying in his official report: " Colonel Gordon handled his regi- ment in a manner that I have never seen nor heard equalled during the war."
