attracted much attention was
General Felix [J. Robertson of
McLennan, Texas, who came to
town clad in the full uniform of
a Confederate g-eneral.

General Robertson, who is

at Port Sumpter when the first

accept the offer of the Pennsyl-
vania commission, which had
provided a comfortable room
for him in the dormitory of
Pennsylvania colleg"e, saying-
that he preferred camp life
with his men.
