Hardcover, VERY GOOD, out of print, Green Boards with gilt titles, corners mildly bumped, 405 pp. Inscribed on fep "For Mr. Hooper-with kindly thoughts from Louise Karling, July 29th, 1929". History. Benjamin Chambers was captain of the pioneers from the Susquehanna to the vast domain of Lord Baltimore. He administered justice and arbitrated disputes. He was a prayerful man; but his musket-flints were picked afresh every morning. He preferred peace, but was ever ready for war. He constructed a stone fort, armed it with two four-pounder fieldpieces, and made the walls of the inclosure the ramparts of the settlement not only against the savages, but against the royal troops themselves. James Chambers rose to the rank of colonel and was, in 1783, elected a member of the Socity of Cincinnati. He afterwards attained a brigadier-generalship in the state militia. (Mr. Chambers died while he was revising this book for the press, and the cheery lines which close his introductory note were amongst the last which he wrote. )
