      Stephen,

      The museum at Antietam NBP has in one of its cases the original
      pencilled note from HKD to his father announcing the fall of
      Harpers Ferry.... does that help?

      To Be A Virginian, either by birth, marriage, adoption, or even
      on one's mother's side, is an introduction to any state in the
      Union, a passport to any foreign country, and a benediction from
      the Almighty God. --Anonymous
