For almost 106 years the people
of this State have reposed belief in
the pleading tradition that Wake
county X. C. was named in honor of
Esther Wake, the beautiful sister-in-law
of Governor Tryon, the Royalit,
who near the time of the Revolution
ary war, by oppressive taxation,
reared a palace in New Iierne which
was at that time the stateliest mansion
on the American continent, and the
belief has been taught and held that
by the galeiitry cf our ancestors
the name was retained, when the
names of Tryon, liute, and Dobbs
counties were changed for more pa
The Raleigh correspondent of the
Charlotte Ob-erver sas inconocl.i;-ls
have now arisen who deny that
Esther Wake ever existed, and assert
that the whole tradition is a myth.
Much lias been written about it. On
application to Jude Walter Clark,
your correspondent lean.s that he
has already written Mr. Noel Gains
burg, who has so long represented
Noith Carolina in the public recoida
cfiice in Loiah n, rc quoting him to
open correspondence with the head
of the Tryon family, ar.d learn the
truth of the Esther Wake matter.
Admiral Tryon, who last year
weiit down with, his battle-ship, the
Victoria, in the Mid.terianean, was a
grandson of Gov. Tryon. Judge
Clark is also endeavoring, through
the same medium, to open communi
cation with the representatives if
Gov. Josiah Mart.n, the last royal
Governor el Noith Cariiina. lie
thinks tli it in the private papers of
Governors Tryon and Martin tlure
may be valuable hiiloiical material

Gov. Martin's papots something
which will throw additional light on
the immortal "Mecklenburg De
claration." Xewbern Journal.
