From the Richmond Dispatch, 6/5/1861, p. 2
Good Workmen. - The Superintendent of the hands at
Marion Hill gives a most favorable report of the way Col. Pendleton's hands
handle the "pick, shovel and hoe." Being recently off duty on Railroad
work, they of course can do twice as much as the town darkies, though the latter
do the best they know how, and work with a will.
