After thebattle of Perrysville a comrade, Philip Parnell, became suddenly ill andwas unable to keep up with the company. Mr. Clark would not desert himalthough his friends pleaded that there was no necessity of endangeringthe lives of them both, as the enemy was hot in their pursuit, andbegged him to take safety in flight. This he refused to do, and hisquick eyes soon discovered a cave into which he dragged his friend moredead than alive and did all he could to relieve his suffering while theenemy passed them. They remained there until Parnell was able totravel, when they joined their company who supposed they had been takenprisoner. He had the interest of the G. A. R. truly at heart andgreatly enjoyed the meetings with the old boys."
