THE LINDSAY LETTER.
John McNeillus in Laurens County, And
Part, at Least, of the Famous Letter
Is a Hoax.
It is very ctoinclusive that part of

Coroner F. Al. Lindsay. both of

it will be remenhered. was written
from a town in 01hio to Samuel At
chison. of near Whitmire. The au
thor of the letter stated that he was
living in ( )hio and that Tohn Me
Neillus and Sanuel Spence. were
living rear him and doing w_ell.
The letter created somewhat of a
snsation here at the time. inas
much as it was supposed by the
relat;ve oi Lindsay and Spence
that they were long since dead. Mc
Neills and Spence were members
of Capt. John C. \\ilson's ccm
p)anl in the Civil war. while Lind
sav was a member of Ouitman's
rifles. It was supposed that Mc
Neillus had deserted at Gettysburg.
.\McNeillus aftrwards came south.
however. and emnplhatically stated
that he had been captured at Get

Chancellorsville. Spence wvas
among the missing but Capt. \\'il

is conclusive evidence that a part
