Artemus Ward on Jeff. Davis:

Jeff. Davis is not poplar here. She is regarded as a Southern sympathiser. & yit I’m told he was kind to his Parents. She ran away from ’em many years ago, and has never bin back. This was showin ’em a good deal of consideration when we reflect what his conduck has been. Her captur in female apparel confooses me in regard in his sex, & you see I speak of him as a her as frekent as otherwise, & I guess he feels so hisself.
