In the name of the great Jehovah...

 Day 131

“I ordered the commander to came forth instantly at which the captain immediately to the door with his breeches in his hand, when I ordered him to deliver to me the fort immediately he asked me by what authority I demanded it, I answered, ‘In the name of the great Jehovah and the Continental Congress.’ ”
