would pass before us! Washington,
there in the ball room, with all thai
dignity and air of heroic devotion
which threw such majesty around the
Father of his country, leading with Mrs
Richard Dobbs Spaight in a minuet at a
ball given in honor of the great chieftain
during his visit to New Berne. Miss Mary
Leech had married the Colonel Spaight
about two years before. If not equal- ,
ling the ball given by the citizens to
Washington in the palace, it was never
theless splendid and comprised much of
the beauty and fashion of the town.
Col. Leech had spared neither cost nor !
trouble to make the entertainment de
lightful. Among the fairest of this fair,
on that memorable evening. Mrs.
Speight's beauty was pre-eminently
conspicuous. Her form was faultless,
her face, animated by wit and liveli
ness, was lovely. The writer knew
quite iutimately "Aunt" Betty Kyler,
a "cake seller," tho servant of Mrs.
Spaight and who waited upon her at
this ball, as well as at her wedding.
She continued the slave of tho family
until her death, which occurred about
1845, though for years living to herself
and having her own time. This old
colored woman would often exhibit to

actress. At will, the tears would as i ID CO BTATHM ifkQQ

a spriDg and the next moment would
follow tbe heartiest peals of laughter.
She could represent the different char
acters at a ball and could and did "trip,
with ease," "the light fantastic toe,"
until prevented by the infirmities of old
age. It was interesting to hear her
stories of '"ye" olden time.
In 1792 Richard Dobbs Spaight was
chosen, by the Legislature, Governor of
the State, and Wheeler states, "he was
the first native North Carolinian chosen
her Chief Magistrate," and continues,
"it is not very complimentary to the
State that ber first seven Governors,
from Caswell, in 1776, to Martin, in
1793, and all of the signers of the Decla
ration of Independence, were born in
other States, "?.
But the historian certainly errs rela
tive to tbe marriage of Gov. Spaight
and Miss Mary Leech, as well as to the
date of the visit of Washington to New
bern, which, was on the invitation of
Gov. Spaight. Wheeler says: "After
serving his constitutional term of three ;
years, Gov. Spaight was succeeded in
1795 by Samuel Ashe, and retired, as he
hoped for ever, from the cares of public
life. About this time, being then
thirty-seven years of age, he married
Miss Mary Leech, of Holmesburg, Pa.,
who was of the highest social position. ;
and of one of the oldest and most in1 u -eotial
families." Now, to quote from
a diary kept in Newbern at the time hy
a prominent family, there will he pri ii
conflicting statements, as follows:
Monday. Sept. 21st, 1789. Went to
Wilson Blount's, where I spent the
evening. Saw Polly Leech there. She I
is to be married next Thursday to Co!.
Spaight. She is a lovely girl. "
This would seem to make the mar
riage in Newbern where no doubt it
occurred, on the 25th of September,
Richard Dobbs Spaight was born in
Newbern in 1758, in a small house on
the lot where is now the residence of
Mrs. Alex. Holton, corner Broad and
Craven streets. Therefore, when mar
ried, he was 31 years of age. His
father was an Irishman. Richard
Spaight. His mother was the sister of; -, ,
Gov. Dobbs, and under him his father J UxllN 11. LlilXL) i
held a prominent place.
Miss Mary Leech was generally e llled , LMGIMd;!!-,
Polly, as most of the Mary's were in
those days. Also, the Ann's were Fouixdcrs a:".;1 'A a i !,:.

was more dignified with proper names.
In this generation there is less formal
ity again, only the "ie" is substituted
for the "y. " Thus it is now Pollie and
Sallie and Susie, etc. .Well, fashion
rules the women and women control
the men in our generation.
Again Wheeler errs when he staffs
that Charles Spaight was born in lCO.
Mrs. John R. Donnell, his sister, was
born in that year and died in 1831, juet
one month after her brother, who was
younger and only a few weeks before ,
his death had been elected to the Legis
lature. They were both stricken down
very unexpectedly to their family and
