Excerpt from Personal Recollections of the Revolutionary War
Nathaniel Warner and A. Robie; myself was one of the sergeants. Soon after the battle of Lexington, Capt. Warner took orders to raise a company, and invited me and other young men to enlist. I hesitated on account o... f my health. I had been out of health for about a year, and was supposed by some to be in a decline. But he said if I would sign, a number Of others would, and if my health continued bad, he would release me. I consulted my physician; he said it would be as likely to help as injure me. When the com pany was full and before we marched, he appointed me first line, and Daniel Collins second.
