I have other letters from Magill, but I haven't transcribed them. But I don't recall any problems of conscience mentioned. He was very determine to fight for his country. There were quite a few Quakers who fought for the cause as I am sure you know. The most famous, Colonel(later General) Langhorne Wister of the 150th Pa. In fact, Wister had 5 other brothers who in one way or another fought during the war. The Wister family are descendent from James Logan, personal secretary to William Penn.
