From the Richmond Dispatch, 9/3/1862, p. 1, c. 7

Committed. - Yesterday's Dispatch contained an account of the examination, before Commissioner Wm. F. Watson, of Robert Blossingham, of Williamsburg, for having in his possession $30 counterfeit Confederate Treasury notes, and a pass permitting him to go to and return from Richmond, signed by Gen. McClellan. At the conclusion of the examination it was stated that the case had been sent before Gen. Winder for adjudication. That official, as we learn, committed Blossingham and a man named G. W. Davis (named in the pass from McClellan) to Castle Thunder till all the circumstances could be inquired into.
