"Richmond, Va. -- Nov. 11, 1861. -- My dear Sir, --- Upon the receipt of information sent through Mr. [James] Williams that Mr. [William L.] Yancey desired to return, a letter was written to him which authorized him to do so. The application was for recall but the authority was so given as to leave the question of his remaining at home, open for future consideration and decision - It was sent long since and he may now be on his way home. Very respectfully, -- (Signed) Jeffn Davis."
