From the Houston Telegraph
December 8, 1862
   The Jackson Mississippian gives the welcome information that the Meridian Miss. and Selma, Ala. road {the Northeast & Southwest RR and the Alabama & Mississippi Rivers RR} will be completed by the 10th inst. This will give us an all railroad communication again between Vicksburg and Richmond. {if you ignore the gap from Selma to Montgomery}
