Excerpt from The Journal of Isaac Senter: Physician and Surgeon to the Troops Detached From the American Army Encamped at Cambridge, Mass;, On a Secret Expedition Against Quebec, Under the Command of Col. Benedict Arnold, in September, 1775 The desire to possess the autographs and portraits of distinguished individuals has led to discoveries of great value to history and letters, and helped to preserve, particularly in a country where the past has had too little reverence, the materials of history itself. It is not known how, or why the original manuscript Journal of Dr. Senter was left in Philadelphia, nor how it came to the hands of its possessor - its existence became known in consequence of inquiries made by Dr. Lewis Roper, of this city, who wished to add to his collection of autographs a good specimen of the handwriting of General Arnold. It was given to him, that he might extract from it an original note of that officer, which the reader will find printed at page 32. His perception of the value of the Journal induced him to communicate it to the Society by which it is published, with permission to print it. It is now given entire, and some few references have been added, to other collections, which form the scanty materials for a history of events, in which the troops of Pennsylvania and Virginia maintained their well-earned reputation for endurance and valor. The circumstances connected with the desertion of the expedition by Colonel Enos, and the return of most of the men of his command, are very little known, and light, of some importance, is shed on the subject, for the first time, it is believed. It is proper to add, that the words in brackets are not in the original manuscript, but have been added to complete the sense wherever omissions were palpable.
