He had seen many of the important changes in the United States, beingborn under Washington's Administration, voting for James Monroereelection and every succeeding presidential election, always voting theWhit ticket, hence was a Republican from principal. Opposed to allsecret societies deeming them to be derogatory to the Christian religionto which he held with firm tenacity. He repeated the "Lord's Prayerseveral times before he lost his power of speech, which was about fortyeight hours before he expired. His sickness was brief, only being fromMonday until Thursday about 1 o'clock. Thus one less soldier for Christon earth - one more gone to fill up the ranks to Heaven. "We saw not theangels who met him there; The gates of the city we could not see; Overthe river, over the river, Father Lindsey stand waiting to welcome me."
