Abstract:

Mitchel writes that he has written for the Richmond Dispatch in the past but currently has no connection with it as he is unable to write under the censorship of [John M.] Schofield's Adjutant General. He discisses Didier's proposal to establish a weekly in Baltimore to be called "Southern Society," noting that only sensational or obscene writing succeeds. He himself knows Southern Society well and believes it to be in its "death throes." He feels Didier's project may have some suceess because Baltimore is the most Southern of Southern cities and comments on Albert Bledsoe's "Quarterly." He concludes by stating that he has a family to support and cannot write for Didier without adequate compensation.

A magazine photograph of Mitchl and a brief printed biography are included.
