From the Richmond Whig, 1/28/1862, p. 3, c. 3
THE HIGH BRIDGE. - A bill has passed both Houses of the General Assembly, authorizing a change on the line of the south side railroad, so as to avoid the "High Bridge" near Farmville, the altitude of which has deterred many persons from travelling over the road. Timid passengers who have passed over this lofty bridge, in a train of cars, have involuntarily closed their eyes, and committed themselves to the care of Providence. The railroad company will promote their interests, and relieve the travelling community, by proceeding forthwith to make the contemplated change in the line of the road.
