The Tri-Weekly Telegraph - Houston, Texas Dated: May 24, 1865. Featured stories relate to the capture of President Jefferson Davis being captured by the Fourth Michigan Cavalry. Some argue that he actually turned himself in because he was being implicated in the murder of President Lincoln and wanted to clear his name. Two letters, on from General T. C. Hinton, explain that they refuse to admit that the cause is lost. Also there is Secretary of War Stanton's correspondence to London on the Death of President Lincoln.
