Genoral Leo's War Horso.
An ex-Confederate quarterimaster n
named Brown, living in West Vir- I
ginia, gives the following account of S<
General Lee's war -horse, Tiavellcher :
1Th1eo horse was bred by '1Mr. Johnt is
ston, nearkV the Dlite Sulphur Springs, di
Grecubrier county, West Viirginia. il
It was of the -Grey Eagle" stock, I
1111d, as i colt, took first premiw,
under the name of "Jeff Davis," at
the Lewisburg fairs for each of the
years 185) andi 1860. It was four
years old in the spring or sunner of
1861. Captail James W1'. Johnston, cc
son of Mr. Johnston above mention c
ed, sold me the horse for $175,
Confederate States notes, in the fall '1.
of 1861, when the Wise Legion, with
other troops unde(1r General Lee, l
were ceampedJ onl Sewell Mountain,
opposed by General Rosecrain.
While on Se i'ell General Lee fre
ciiently admiireid the horse, and more
than once jestingly remarked to me 1
to take good care of his colt, as he
expeeted to need it before the trou
ll e was over. 1, ats (uar,1ternsltter
of the regiment (Third Wis, or t
Sixtieth Virginia), had full privilege '
of the rear, and kept "Jeff" well
AV. stabled and groomed, at lent five
miles from the enemy. In Decen- HE
her, 1861, the regiment to which I
was aittacheid, then kniowni as the~
ASixtieth Virginia, Colonel Stark,
was ordlered to theO South Carolina
coast, whither General iLee had al
readly pre(mled us. Of course
"Jell" was taken along. Upon~i
meeting with General Lee at PoEco
taligo, South Carolina, he again in- -
qulire d abont his colt in his~ usual
wainning way. I then offered hlim
the horse as a gift, which he pirompt
Jl delinecd, in the fiendi~liest muan-a
ner, however ;at the samiie time
r eimarking thait if I wvould not will
luig sell him the horse, he wold
gladly use it for a week or two to)
learn'f its qualllites, &c. I then left 7
"J ff" at Gleneral L~ee's stable. In
aibotit a mionith after, 0one of his staff
011icer5 returined the horse to me1(,
with a note from Genera'tl Lee to
the effect that the animal suited him,a
bunt that he could no longer use so
valuable ai horse, ini such triouhi
louis timesi, 11111ess it were' his own;
thant if I wouild nt sell, pleanse to
keep1 the horse, with many thankils ;
thait if I woumld soll, the otheer would
pa~iy me imy price andlo tke miy rece'ip)t
for the amount, &c. I took anid re0
c'eipted for $200 Confederate States
notes, and "Jefi'' becante t~hie oer
ty of General Lee. This was ini Feb.
ruary, 1862. In the springl ouf 1868 C
-- General Lee wrote mue aL noEte staingo
thaiit his horse hadl murvived the warl, A
that it was known as -'lraveller" (Ir
recollected how lhe spltl~Ed the word CI
with two l's), and askinig for the a
pedigree. I obtained thes pedligio (s0i
from Cap~jtainl J. A. Jo~hnlstoni and ali
for'warded it to) Genera'l [Lee. Ths C
dletatils are mentioned to r'ecall the 'h
simpflle dlignity anld hoe ety of thetman1 si
even ini so trivial a matter as a horse hi
