Beloved Brethren the events of the last three months have placed our coup trying greatly altered circumstances. The fortunes of War have brought us again under Federal Rule and it becomes us to wisely in our now new relation. The stars and stripes again wave Over us tis our National a and should by us be respected accordingly. 0ar lord anticipations of a by Erate nationality have in the Providence of god been disappointed and it becomc3u3 to submit quietly to this providential award. To Havo maintained a Long Una of oozy struggle our soldiers have fought bravely and although forced to sub rail to overwhelming numbers yet we have lost no Emnor Dur enemies being the judges. Now that our armies have been pm Erly surrendered and our Brave soldiers it is our duty to what Providence seems to have ordained for us. Let us All Deport ourselves As quiet peace Loving place making Citi Zens. Let us As far As practicable try to forget the drop i we have suffered from the Northern people and henceforth to cultivate the spirits of peace and Good neighbourhood. This is both our duty As christians and our interest As citizens Hope that none of our people Wilf for a moment countenance bushwhacking or guerilla warfare. These Are wrong in principle and practice and whatever Apo Loev men May have made for them during the War there can be none now. Above All let no paroled Soldier violate his parole by uniting in such enterprises. The oath on which Youl parole was Given was a solemn Appeal to god and it my to violated with impunity there Are.
