Cartel ship landed at Milford two hundred sick soldiers from the
Sugar House and Ship Prisons of New York. These miserable
victims of inhuman incarceration were suffering with small-pox
and other loathsome diseases ; and it was difficult, in those days
of dreaded small-pox, to get nurses. Our hero volunteered for
this service, and died of the disease. A soldiers' monument stands
in Milford, erected to the forty-six soldiers, who died in Milford
during January, 1777; and in 1872, the Legislature of Connecticut

resolved to have placed, on one side of this monument, an inscrip-
tion to Mr. Stow. An inscription was selected, composed by
George F. Tattle, one of his descendants, but in 1875 the fnnds
had not been collected to cut it.

The second volume of the Publications of the New Haven Colo-
nial Historical Society, in an article by Thomas R. Trowbridge, Jr.,
gives the following sketch :

"The house which has the reputation of being the most ancient
in Milford, is the one known as the ' Stowe house,' standing on
Wharf street, near the harbor. It was built at least as early as
1689, of medium size, two stories, with a high garret, covered with
a gable roof, and, as usual with houses of that period, it has a
heavy oaken frame, and is so compactly put together that there is
no reason why it should not stand many years to come. In this
house lived, during the Revolutionary War, that sterling patriot,
Stepheu Stow.

" In December, 1776, shortly before night, there appeared off
the harbor of Milford a British vessel, carrying at her foretop 'a
iiag of truce.' Darkness increasing, she was not again seen. Near
to the beach was the house of Capt. Isaac Miles (also an earnest
patriot), who with his sons sitting before his fire, hearing unusual
noises outside, opened the doors and found the yard tilled with a
large number of wild, forlorn-looking creatures, in most deplorable
condition, and suffering for want of food and clothing.

" On that bitter winter night, they had been turned ashore, and
left on the beach to shift for themselves. The sympathies of the
Miles family and neighbors sheltered these released American
prisoners for the night. In a day or two, they were removed to
the Town Hall, which was prepared for them. In this building
(still standing), the work of death at once commenced among
these unfortunate men, who, stricken with fever, were so reduced

in strength that they easily fell victims to its virulence. Here it
■was that the heroic work of Stephen Stow was done. Day and
night his faithful ministrations to the sick and dying, and his
unceasing, constant care of these men, was his sole occupation,
till, becoming physically exhausted, he contracted the fever and
fell a victim in his work of kindness, leaving a name to most
should rank with John Howard's, who a little later gave up his
life among the hospitals of Russia.*

* Barber's History of the Colony of Connecticut contains, from the "Connecticut Gazette" the following
statement :

Derby, February ISth, 1764.

On the evening- of the 7th, there was a violent storm of hail and rain. The next morning after was ob-
served a large breach in a hill on the west side of the old ri\'er, supposed to be occasioned by some subterra-
nean wind or fire. "The breach was said to be twenty feet deep and one hundred thirteen long, and about
sixty rods of land covered with the gravel and sand. Four trees, of one foot diameter, were carried one
hundred and seventy -three feet, and supposed to be forced up forty feet. Some small stones stuck fast in a
green tree." "A large, dry log, better than ten feet in diameter, was carried up so far in the air, that by
the forceof the fall ene end of it stuck so fast in the ground that it kept the other end up. Tlie narrowest
part of the breach is about thirt3" feet at the surface of the ground ; and the bottom of the breach is
crooking, winding much like the streaks of lightning. The above account was taken by exact rule by ua."
