Excerpt from In Memoriam, Brevet Colonel U. S. And N. Y. Vol; John Watts De Peyster, Junior, Died 12th April, 1873 Through the in uence of his father, a commission as first lieutenant in the 11th New York Cavalry, was now obtained for him, and he seems to have proceeded to service with his regiment at once, working hard to familiarize himself with the various duties of a cavalry officer. His extreme youth - he was not yet of age - his small stature and boyish appearance seem to have been obstacles in his way, which he felt sensibly, and when, shortly after, his State offers him a position as major in an artillery regiment, he writes to decline it, in the last letter of his which has come under my notice. In that letter he says that he feels he is not fit for the duties of major, being too young, and declines the offer with a simple modesty that shows well for his knowledge of himself.
