Brown's army having arrived at the harbor from Niagara it was thought by him not necessary to detain the Militia there any longer and accordingly we were all sent home again--we fared verry well while in camp much better than I expected we should our provisions were good, and our duty light--the march out and back was verry fatigueing it being so verry muddy that we were forced sometimes to wade through it and water half leg deep however I stood it verry well much better than I thought I should when I started from home I was hearty all the while we were gone--if a man has his health he can endure almost anything but to be sick in such times is what I should dread above all the rest I saw several that were verry sick while I was gone, and to see how the poor fellows fared it was enough to make one shudder at the idea--I thought it would be impossible for me to endure the campaign before I went from home not having been used to such fare and fatigue as is necessary for a soldier to undergo but when I got away from home I found that I was much more hearty than I was at home and I could eat Uncle Sam's beef and bread with a good appetite" (letter from Smith to his brother, Azariah, November 1814 recorded in House, p. 625).
