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.
