      Dear Tom,

      LOL!

      I appreciate your looking but when I read that account on pg. 198
      of Priest's book about Lee galloping to Cooke, it immediately set
      off alarum bells in my head.

      The source of Priest's citation about Lee galloping up,
      apparently, is a letter from Bart Johnson writing on March 17,
      1895 t oteh editor of Confederate Veteran. he says it is in the
      Lilley collection at the Washington County Library. I'll check
      it the nexttime I am there, but memory sources 32 years after the
      event set off my crap detector.
