From the Richmond Dispatch, 3/18/1862, p. 2, c. 3

Good Men and True. All of the workmen at the Virginia Armory took the allegiance to the Southern Confederacy last week, not grudgingly, but most willingly The work they do daily testifies to their fidelity, for never were bees more eager in gathering in their stores of sweets than the industrious operatives there in fabricating all manner of uncomfortable appliances for the delectation of our expected Yankee guests. It is, perhaps, not proper to allude to what the ordnance department may be doing to arm the people, but we may be pardoned for saying, that no visitor to the Armory can leave the building without the conviction that that particular department is putting its best foot foremost.
