From the Richmond Dispatch, 5/1/1862, p. 2, c. 3

Released. – Mrs. Ann E. Scott was released from Castle Godwin yesterday on taking the oath of allegiance. It is understood that she will stop in Richmond. Mrs. Scott was received here as a prisoner about two months since, having been sent down by General Hill on the charge of crossing our lines at Leesburg and communicating with the enemy. – The nature of her communication with the foe has not transpired. Perhaps she may have acted as a young widow anxious of distinguishing herself some department of human industry that the Confederate General could not appreciate.
