The conviction that such was the Case with men of ood feelings and principle was produced by my witnessing the mental Sun rings of an intimate and valued Friend by whose Banda worthy num had fell. Several years had a Lap from la Iada of this Fiat re before i be Cutine Loqa rioted who Bim were soon after associated in the general Stafl of the army and for the greater part of two years shared the same tent or Barrack room amp often the smaller pallet. I had an Opportunity of seeing the agony be open Felt when his mind recurred to the event which had deprived society of a worthy member and himself of an esteemed and cherished acquaintance. Like the unhappy Hermit in the tragedy of Douglass be appeared in hrs sleep to Quot hold dialogues with Tho ghost of the victim of his Superior skill in the use arms or More perfect self pos session and a witness to them might have adopted the opinion of the Youthful Nerval that the happier lot was his who had fallen. Taking Tho rules which govern such matters As the criterion my Friend had nothing wherewith to accuse himself. The quarrel was indeed Quot fastened on generous As Brave he had done every thing in his Power to induce a withdrawal of the Challenge and when by a first fire his adversary was wounded to anxiously desired that the Altair might there terminate. His pro position rejected his second shot was fatal. What an instructive lesson Doea this Story present to him who would resort to this Mode of settling a personal difficulty amp possesses common sensibility and the principles of humanity and Honor. The sad alternatives his own death or u subsequent life of bitter regret find sorrow. A Short experience in the army convinced me also that fighting a Duel was not an undoubted test of True courage. I had known instances of duels and desperate Duel being fought by men who would not have been selected by officers who knew them to Lead a forlorn Hope. On the Contray 1 possess the most positive testimony to prove that some of the bravest of men would not be engaged in tin a Tair of that kind under any circun>stanoe8. C pm formally to my plan As stated in the Ooton of my letter to give you facts rather than arguments 1 present you with another reminiscence of my Early military life. I introduce it not Only to sustain my position but from the respect i entertain for the memory of a Gallant brother officer Wing since called to receive in another world his ref Riard for preferred Quot Tho Praise of god to the Praise of no in Quot in the summer of the year 1793, Lieut. Drake of the infantry of the Sud sub legion received a marked insult from another Broth or officer. Manifesting no disposition to Call him to account some of those who wished him Well a mongol whom 1 was Ono spoke to him on the subject expressing our fears that his reputation As an officer would greatly suffer if he permitted such an insult to pass unnoticed. The answer he gave to was that to cared not what opinion the officers might form of him he was determined to pursue his own course. That course was so novel in the army that it lost for him As i supposed it would the les pet of nearly All the officers. The ensuing summer gave or. Drake an Opportunity of vindicating most triumphantly his conduct and principles lie Hod been stationed in a Small fortress which had l can erected by general Wayne during the Winter Ufi Oitto s of which had been rendered remarkable by Tho defeat of St. Clair s army three years before. Tho Garrison consisted of a single Rifle company and thirty infantry and of the latter Drake was the imn re mediate commander in the beginning of july 1794, a detachment of the army Hundred men under the command of Mojor Mcmahon being encamped near the fort in which they bad the previous Day deposited a Quantity of provisions which they Hail escorted from the Eaton Mont of the army at Greenville Wero attacked Early in the morning by upwards of Throe thousand indians. The room made a Gallant resistance but it being turned on both flanks and in danger of being Surio Index a they Retreat iii to the it let in i oud around the Fuit. From tins too they were soon Dialo ged by the overpowering Force of Tho enemy in the Retreat Many wounded men were in Dao Gor of being left which being observed from the fort capt. Gibson directed his own lieutenant to Lake the infantry Drake s particular command and a portion of the re Lemon and Sally out to to Weir Relief. To this Drake objected and claimed Tho right to command his own men Ait As senior to the Othot lieutenant his right also to Tho whole command. 0, Verv tto i sir Quot said thee pain if such is your a a a take it.

Being possessed of a High Grade of talents and an amiable character he bad the sympathy of All the officers. With others 1 visited him after he had been removed to Bis quarters. He expressed a desire to see the officer with whom he had fought and was present at the interview. 1 wish i could describe As it merits this interesting scene. The circumstances attending it were so deeply impressed upon my mind that Twy can never be effaced As Long As memory holds us seat. In the tent re some half dozen officer the friends of the dying Man for As i have said be had from his amiable qualities Many and warm ones exhibiting unequivocal evidences of their sorrow. above the Remc and near the Bead of the rude Couch was the Manly form of the commandant of the corps to which both of the due lists belonged the Beau Ideal of chivalrous valor and the Chevalier de Bayard of the army endeavouring to stifle As Best to could the feelings which agitated his bosom. At a Little distance in full View of the victim of his passions sat the insensible but i must retain the indignation which i still feel. He was my brother officer it shared together the perils of a difficult War and in Battle 1 know that he did his duty and whatever might have been his conduct to others i never had personally and reason Tocom Atn of him. But thar heat appear gently at Leaa Teaf amp cited by the by burying in an untimely grave a Man who had never injured him whose Arm might be of Eek Edio the pending decisive bait Ltd with tha bit Berlo Tori Una Phant enemies of his country and whose Intel last might of some future time live been use fury amp played in its Council a the severe bodily pain which the dying officer Hud for some time suffit red bad escaped and that Calm and ease bad succeeded which is tie Harbinger of approaching death and which a gracious fro Vidaca Bas provided for the mortally wounded Soldier to enable Bim to offer a lat prayer for his Distant fas Nily if he has one or for Tho Pardon of to isor Sias.

I Bave already azaled an entire change in my seat menu on the subject of j dueling from those which i ennui trained upon my first entering the army and for which in it excuse can be Over but my extreme youth and the bad example continually before me.
