Highland Recorder Fri. Nov. 29, 1895
Mr. James H. Trimble recently found a large dirk knife on the mountain east of Monterey, near what is known as the Solder's Path. The blade is about a foot long and is covered with rust. The handle is composed of material that was not affected by exposure. On a part of the handle next to the blade withother letters almost obliterated, is the word Lee. It is thought by some that the knife was the property of General Lee, he having lost it while here in 1862; however this is only guess work. Let the owner be who he will,
it is certainly a formidable weapon at short range if used properly.
