'.The 4th day of July, 1914, was
one of extreme boat. Ou that day my

tin curly hour in the morning till Isto

we encamped for tbo night, our army
uccupyin the wost, whilo thut of the
eocmy was encamped on tho east sido
of the Creek. After our tents had
been pitchod I obterved a flag borne
by a mjn in peueaDl's dress, approach
ing my msrqao. He brought n loiter
from a lady woo occupied a large man
sion on tbo opposite sido of the Creok,
informing mo that she was the wile
of a member of Parliament who Wus
then at Quebec; tbat bcr children,
servants and a young ludy friend were
all alone with ber in tba bouse) thut
Gon. Rial had placed a leutiual before
ber door; and that sho ventured, with
great doubt, of tho propriety of the
request, to ask thut I would piles a
sentinel upon the bridge to protect her
againt stragglers from oar camp. I
assured tho messenger that the Judy's
request should be complied with. Ear
ly the next morning the same messen
ger, bearing a white flag, re-appeared
with a note from the samo Isdy, thank
ing me for tho protection she had en
joyed, adding that, in acknowledge

" I folt so much sbomo and mortili

a trap, that I cnuld scarcely fix my
mind upon tho duties which now dc
mnnded my undivided nttnntion. I
knew that I had committed a grst
indiscretion in accepting that singu
lar invitation, and that if tiny disaster
resulted from it I richly deserved to
looso both my eomniissien aud my
character. I constantly found myself
wondering whether the lady really in
tended to betray us, or whether wo
had been accidentally observed. Tlio
qbcHtiou would recur oven amidst tlu
excitement of battle. Fortunately my
presence aud services in tho field woro
notretpiirod until (iencrnls Porter nnd

iuiendod to betray ino, and nothing
but.tho accident of my aid, rising for
his handkerchief, saved us from cap

tered her. Thut nucxpoctod uieoting
would havo occasioned embarrassment
In cither contirrgoncy ; and it is ao' .
difficult to believe a lady of culturo
