In the Spring of 1862, he enlisted in Company B, Seventh Squadron, Rhode
Island Cavalry, for three months. Upon the expiration of his term of service, he returned
to his class in the Fall of 1862. In the Spring of 1863, he again left us, and enlisted in the
Navy, where he remained for about eighteen months.
After his return, he traveled through the West for a Philadelphia book firm, until
the Spring of 1867, when he took a course at Crittenden's Philadelphia Commercial
College, graduating July 11, 1867. He then returned to Dartmouth, and graduated with
the class of 68. Immediately after graduating, he went to Chicago, Illinois, and began the
study of law. He was never admitted to the bar, but remained there until after the great
fire of October 9, 1871, when he went to Minneapolis, Minnesota, and engaged in the
real-estate business. Not meeting with the success which he anticipated, he returned to
New Hampshire in April, 1873. In the Fall of that year, he entered Harvard Law School,
but was unable to finish his course on account of sickness. His mind became diseased,
and it became necessary to send him to the Asylum for the Insane, at Concord, New
Hampshire. He has been there since March 8, 1874.
He was never married.
