Excerpt from Lessons From Our North Carolina Records: An Address Read Before the Faculty and Students of Trinity College, November 27, 1888
From my present helpless condition one would scarcely think so, but the fact is that during the late war I had the honor to command a regi ment in Lee's army, and one of my companies, Company G, was com posed at its organization almost entirely of Trinity men, boys I might almost say, very many of them were; and the remembrance of that company has always made a warm spot in my heart for Trinity. And well does its memory deserve to be cherished, for your college register as well as its own roster bears mournful attest how faithful it was, even unto death. Therefore, when Trinity called, it was not in me to refuse, to make the effort, at least, to come. And then too a lesson I learned from old Company G, was that every North Carolinian must go promptly and cheerfully to the front whenever called upon for service in behalf of North Carolina, and so, Mr. President and gentlemen, I am here to-day.
