02/06/1862 - In a letter to Confederate Lt. Col. William Whann Mackall, A.A.G., Dr. Cliffe said, "I have been shown a dispatch form Brig. Gen [Thomas Carmichael] Hindman stating that I am reported by Lt. Shannon & others of Texas Rangers to have used defamatory and seditious language towards the Southern Confederacy and to have stated that I was forced to go into the Southern Army as Surgeon to prevent my property from being taken, and that I otherwise manifested decided hostility to our cause and preference for the North. Also that the tenor of my conversation in connection with the battle of Fishing Creek was to discourage our Soldiers. In the absence of other than general charges I can only say that there is not a single word of truth in relation to the whole matter unless it be that a candid statement of the reverse at Fishing Creek be so considered. Touching my entering the Service as Surgeon for that or any other cause, I am sure did not form a part of any conversation in which I engaged and it may not be improper in this connection to state that since my connection with the Army, no act or conversation of mine has been done or expressed otherwise than that of loyaltyto the section in which every interest I have is centered. Respectfully Danl B Cliffe, Bowling Green, KY, Feby 6th, 1862
