REMINISCENCES

BY C. A. LAMB.
Written June, 1874

We were shown where the British marched up in front of the fort, where, with the artillery of the fort, they might have been cut off like the grass before the mower, but were suffered by Hull to march in and take possession without opposition. But the bell rings on the old Superior, and we must get aboard, or wait another week or two for her return from Buffalo. So we bid adieu to Michigan, and are soon homeward bound, where we arrive in due time, richly laden with the new experience of our Father's care over us and ours in our absence from each other. From this time, July, 1824, I labored, first, to supply for a part of the time the Baptist church in Wheeler, Steuben county. Then, in 1825, I was called to labor as pastor with the Baptist church in Italy, Yates county. I staid with them one year, and then resigned in favor of Brother Hosford, who finished his course in this State some years ago, I believe at Parma. I was next called to settle with the Second Baptist church in Pult-ney, Steuben county, New York. Here I was ordained forty-six years ago this present fall. About the 24th of August, 1829 I bade adieu to my friends and brethren in the State of New York, and set my face towards the then far-off Michigan. Coming by land to Buffalo, I found the steamboat that was next to leave for Detroit crowded to repletion with emigrants and their effects, so that I could not get my little all on board, and rather than leave what little I had behind, I concluded to avail myself of the chance of going in a nice schooner, the Commerce, about to start.
