It is copied from the Olive i ranch published in boat on and edited with ability when on a tour to the West i met with the subject of this treatise at Utica new York. The grateful remembrance of the soldiers of the revolution by our country became tho subject of conversation. After there had been no interchange of opinion among us or. Bancroft observed that he had applied to Congress for a pension but owing to uie circumstance that ills name had keen stricken o t the Roll before he had nerved nine Montha to serve general Washington in a More hazardous relation he could not obtain it although he thought his circumstances and his claims for consideration were As great As any Soldier s.

One Day immediately after Washington a arrival at was detailed by the officer of the Day among the guard. It so happened that i was placed As Sentinel before the general a quarters at no Neon Elnick. About 1 of clock the Geu Lral s Carriage drove up which i Kue Vas a Soldier let it not As a Sentinel.

And when i ascended to the height must look round carefully and if 1 discovered any person i a St keep Ata distance from him and Sutler no one to take me.
