  "HOW IT WAS THAT JEFF DAVIS DIDN'T TAKE WASHINGTON."  
 
 
Frank Leslie's Budget of Fun
 
September 01, 1861
   
 
 
Jeff Davis (to Beauregard)
“But, I say, Bully Beau, are not those fellows running the wrong way?”
Beauregard
That's a fact, our Bull Run has here come to a pretty sudden stop. Uncle Abe's blockaded the bridges—there's the Banks of the Potomac above—gunboats below—and there's Wool gathering near Richmond! We're getting into a pretty tightish fix! Confound that McClellan, why the deuce didn't they keep Patterson? He was the man for us!”
