Regt. expedition against Louisburg, where it appears, after Louisburg was taken by the English, he was detailed to remain in the vicinity in command and to officiate as surgeon, and where in March, 1746, he died of disease, probably fever, a. 40 to 45. Tradition says that his preaching was ingenious and original, and that in surgery he was eminent. His person was spoken of as commanding, his eye black and piercing ‘almost to the annihilation of the object on which it rested.’ His habits were probably not as grave and severe as the church under his care deemed essential. The writer has in his possession two plans by him of his father's lands in Menotomy, made about the year 1725. Rev. Samuel Cooke, in Camb. Second Prect., records that on the evening of Sunday, 27 Jan. 1740, he conversed with Mr. Ammi R. Cutter—then probably on a visit to Menotomy, his birth-place. Ammi Ruhamah Cutter [H. U. 1752], his son, of Portsmouth, N. H., was surgeon of Rogers's Rangers in the French War, and Physician-General of the Eastern Department in the Revolutionary War. See Wyman's Chas., 266. 20
