"I never once seen Lieutenant Hamilton loose his Gentleman's bearing when a pressed man was brought before him. Weather they cursed or pleaded he would tell them "Best volunteer, my man, for forced or willing we will have you either way".
- James Cullen, Remembrances of Eight years before the Mast, 1834.
