Sy Scholfield quotes him in "The Life of Henry A. Wise of Virginia, 1806-1876" by Barton Haxall Wise (Macmillan, 1899), p. 118: "If you had not left the house at ten o'clock that night, if you had stayed four hours later, you would have seen me. I was born at two o'clock in the morning of December 27, 1846."
