Subject: RE: Signal Regulations Were Bendable

Message Detail:
I'm not clear whether you're a "volunteer" (free-lance) spy, one employed by "higher authority" (such as Longstreet's Harrison, sent to him by SecWar), or other possibilities. (Don't forget the counterintel role of the CS Detectives employed by the Provost M.G.) One thing...go easy on the concept of payment. You're in this for patriotic reasons (e.g., too old or whatever to shoulder a musket. Cash you receive is to cover your expenses behind the lines or to enable you to run agents, who insist on gold. The notion that CS agents were "paid" has gotten a bum rap.
