  • Anecdote*: He wanted work as a sailor on a vessel from Liverpool NS, so left home to go there. Before he left his father asked him not to take part in privateering, a profitable activity many others were in. A man came to his lodgings and offered him a second mate position on a square rigged vessel redy to sail for the West Indies. The man who was supposed to go was supposedly unable, and he was promised good wages, so he accepted and went to the ship. He quickly found that she was a privateer and demanded to be put ashore. The captain laughed but promised he would put him on the first captured vessel and return him to Liverpool. They quickly took an American schooner, and Benjamin was sent back to NS in charge of a small crew and the "prize". But some of the schooner's crew were hiding in the hold, and during the night they came out, overpowered their captors, and set sail for Boston. The NS crew were now prisoners and were told they could swear allegiance to the US or be thrown overboard. All but Benjamin took the oath, and he ws thrown into the sea. He found something to cling to and begged them to make him a prisoner and spare his life. They offered him another chance to take the oath and he refused. An axe ws brought down on the hand grasping the vessel and he fell into the sea, but managed to grab the vessel again with his remaining hand, pleading for his life. The Americans repeated their offer, Benjamin said he still could not do it, the axe fell again, and he fell into the sea. [See "Down Shore Tales" by William A. Swim].1
