Excerpt from History of Medicine in New York, Three Centuries of Medical Progress, Vol. 2

In Spite of his intimate friendship with Franklin, Governor Col den, probably from his Official connections, continued to be in tensely loyal to Great Britain when the troubles with the Mother Country began. He insisted that the stamped paper made com pulsory by the famous stmp Act must be used, but soon found that the people of the colony were against him. Colden was now a very Old man, past eighty-seven, but he still had pluck, so he re tired to Fort George with a garrison of marines. It is said that he ordered the marines to fire on the populace when they were sedi tious, but the marines refused. In the disturbances which fol lowed, Colden's official carriage as lieutenant-governor was seized and burned, along with an effigy of himself, and it is said also of the devil. Finding life too uncomfortable under the circumstances in New York, Colden retired at the beginning of the Revolution to a large estate which he owned near Newburgh, called Coldenham. Here he occupied himself entirely with his favorite sciences, espe cially botany, electricity and mathematics. His home had been the meeting place for the learned men of the colonies, and his high est pleasure in life had been to entertain them, but the disturbance due to the Revolutionary War interfered with this, and the follow ing year, on September 28th, 1776, only a few months after the Declaration of Independence, the physician, scientist, governor, passed away.
