Lyle settled in at the Homestead on the behest of [[Warren]] and [[Prudence]], who wished for a doctor that would assist with her pregnancy. Later, his name was defiled once more by the British in Boston, and Connor was sent to halt their proceedings permanently. Upon arriving, Lyle's courier informed him that the slander was being distributed by paper boys around Boston, and Connor bribed them to end the defilement of White's name. He then went in search of their overseer, who he either beat up or [[Pickpocketing|pickpocketed]], thus ending the defilement of Lyle's name.
Afterwards, Lyle became overwhelmed with treating the many wounded sailors of the Aquila following the Battle of the Chesapeake, to which he requested Connor to find someone with steady hands to assist him as a nurse and apprentice. Rushing to find someone, Connor located Diana, who he brought back to the medical station.
As Connor performed minor medical help nearby, such as realigning dislocated joints and treating cuts and burns, Lyle and Diana worked together on the more serious injuries. When all was done, Lyle was so impressed with Diana that he mentioned that she was more capable than any previous assistants he had worked with prior. He then took her on as his apprentice and nurse.
