From the book, Records of the Columbia Historical Society, "When the law allowed the appointment of Chaplains he received his commission, dated May 31, 1862, and was honorably mustered out June 19, 1865. The services rendered by himself and Mrs. Smith to the soldiers in Judiciary Square Hospital can never be computed at their full value. Ministering to more than 11,000 men, his image was borne away stamped deeply upon as many hearts."
