Excerpt from The Story of a Trooper: With Much of Interest Concerning the Campaign on the Peninsula, Not Before Written

An eccentric gentleman, who had sold jewelry in Maiden Lane, thinking the Government might need an extra regiment or so of cavalry before the war was ended, had inserted in the Herald an advertisement, proposing a meeting at a hall on Broadway, for the purpose of considering measures to raise a regiment of volunteer cavalry. A Colonel was wanted, to whom would be presented a remarkable horse, of great value, and a near relation to Patchen. There was something attractive about the advertisement, as there also was about the wild, dashing life of a trooper. None but skillful horsemen were to apply, horsemanship being considered necessary to a useful trooper. It must be remembered that I am writing of what occurred before the Government made that greatest Of military dis coveries, that it is not necessary a man first learn to ride before you entrust him with a horse and equip ments, and send him, disabled with carbine, sabre and pistols, into the field to fight the enemy. There were those inclined to set this ambitious dealer in jewelry down as a very Indiscreet gentleman, to hazard his for tune on so dangerous an enterprise.
