-"On the 17th of December, the writer was informed of the serious illness of a private in his company - Robert McMennamin [sic] of Philadelphia,-then in the hospital.... Resolved to see him, and ignoring prison rules and persons, the writer watched the street and hailed the commandant through the bars; he came, listened and granted the urgent demand.... As the writer bent over him and received his dying words, -'Lieutenant, see to my mother and little children,' -...he realized the unutterable horror of war.... He died far from home and friends, and we know not where he sleeps his last sleep."

-"Hang up, bretheren, the portrait of Joseph Darrow.... You see
you the face of a boy of sixteen...combining...the intensest kindliness
with the most resolute firmness.... In thinking of him as a combatant
on the bloody field of Bull Run,...I have found it almost impossible
to conceive of him as engaged in the stern work of fighting;...and yet
we know there was an element in his character, which, at the proper
time, would have changed his whole aspect, and...would have
clothed it with the sternness, if not the fury of battle."

-From his funeral sermon, preached 27 OCT 1861
by B.H. Nadal, D.D., Sands Street M.E. Church, Brooklyn.
