VOL. VIII.- NO ai
and the Cherry
George and the Hatchet Episode
By ROBUTUS LOVE.
(CepjrHgM. 1107. by Robertus Love.]

]n the original cher
ry tree and
from the 1800
edition of Par
'•cMlJ, aon Weems'
"Life of George
|KVm With Curloas
able to Himself
Mr. m. l. wxxms. and Exemplary
to His Toting
Countrymen." The author prefaces the
anecdote with a brief paragraph. In
which he says "it la too valuable to be
loot and too true to be doubted." The
famous story begins on page 13 of the
hook. An old woman tella It
"When George," said she, "waa altout
six years old, he waa made the wealthy
master of a hatchet 1 of which, like
most little hoys, be was Immoderately
fond; and waa constantly going about
chopping every thing that came In hia
wey. One day, in the garden, where
• be often amused himself hacking bis
mother's pea-sticks, be unluckily tried
the edge of his hatchet on the body of
a beautiful young English cherry-tree,
which he hacked ao terribly, that I
, don't believe the tree ever got the bet
ter of It. The next morning the old
gentlemui. findlag out what had be
fallen his tree, which, by the way,
was a great favorite, came Into the
hense; and with much warmth asked
for tbe mischievous author, declaring
at the aame time, Hint tie would not
have taken Ova guineas for bis tree.
Presently George and his batcbet made
their appearance, 'Meorye,' said his
father, 'do you kuow who killed that
beautiful little cherry tree yonder In
the garden V Tbat was a toniih'qiiei
tiUH; anil George staggered under It for
a moment; but quickly recovered him
self: and looking at bla father, with
tbe sweet face of youth brightened
with the Inexpressible charm of all
coiiquerlug truth, be bravely cried out,
'I can't tell a tie, Pa; you knowT cant
tell a lie. 1 did cut It with my hatch
et.' 'Ruu to my srus. you dearest boy.',
cried hla father iu transmits; 'run to
ay anna; glad am I, Ceorge, tbat you
have killed my tree; for you have paid
me for It a thousand fold. Such au
aet of heroism In my sou la wprtli
more than a thousand trees, though
blossomed with silver, and their fruits
of purest gold.'" .
Is the Immortal cherry tree story true
•r untrue? To believe or not to believe
—that la tbe question. 80 far as the
fair fame of .George Washington ia
concerned. It does not matter au lota.
That la tlxeil. a star of the first mag
nitude. Doubtless there are many good
persona who trust fondly that little
George hacked tbe.tree with his hatch
et and owned up. On tlie other band,
there are many equally good persona
who, preferring to look upon Washing
ten aa a ma* rather than aa a divinity
* and aa a real boy rather than aa au
atupl child, deep down In their hearts
dealre to belter* that George never
owned a hatchet, that there never was
a cherry tree In Papa Waahlngtou'a
garden and that the harking -waa a
lucubration of a v hark writer.
We know whe tlrat published the
at«( 7. "Pamon" Weema, Rev. Mason
Locke Weema. one of Waahlngtou'a
earlleat biographers, did that. But It
seems that tbe story did not appear
nutll the fifth edition of the parson's
book, which waa first published In
WOO. two years after Washington's
death, under the quaint title of "A

Why. asks the prying critic, to
whom ne secular history Is sacred,
did not Mr. WCema inclwde the sev
eral boyhood anecdotes In bis first
and other early editions? You may re
pJ> that perhaps he bad not beard of
the stortoa at that time. But tbe con
text of the book Itself dispenses with
that argument Parson Weems dis
tinctly atatea that both the cherry tree
story and another anecdote showing
the little George's goodness of heart.
- which also lie relates, wore told to hloi
by an aged lady twenty years befor
tl»-«t£M|t jrriti..* This Isdy. he
tnf her girlhood nt the family homs
opposite Fredericksburg, Va., wjiere
lay the orchard that grew the tree that
was hacked by the hatchet that George
had—lf he bad it.
Oeorge Waahlngtou ni born In 1732.
The hatchet Incident, happening when
he wan ale, must date from 17.18.
Nearly seveiity years passed before It
got Into print, yet for thirty year*
Washington bad been a famous char
acter. »ue la Inclluad to ask why Par
son Weems didn't use the atoQr In his
earlier editions. «»uce he says he had
known It for twenty years. Moreover,
why didn't lie tell us the uaoic of tbla
distant kinswoman of Washington,
since by his own n Amission he waa
writing the Ufa of the "greateet man
that ever 11 red?" Historians who
writ* actual facta are eager to give
authorities for their statements.
In hla first edition tbe parson de
clared. right on hla title page, tbat tbe
matter of tbe book was "faithfully
taken from authentic documents."
When the several stories were insert
ed. however, we find the title page al
luding to "curious anecdotes." with,
tbe reference to falthfulnesa and .au
thentic documents altogether eliminat
It la unfair to Parson Weems, how
ever, to place him in eomparisou with
historians. He was not a historian.
He was an exhoiier. Iu whatever be
wrote be made a special plea, fie set
out with a Axed and definite Intention,
and. though altogether locking In lit
erary artistry, be hewed to the line
untH he reached "Finis," In the case
of the Washington book his purpose
was to-plsco before tbe public, partic
ularly before young Americans, a pic
ture of a St. Washington, idealised, ha
loed. aureoled, uutil very few attri
butes merely human were left. He
aucceeded. and hi* work pleased the
public of his day and for many yean
thereafter. More than seventy edi
tions of Weems' "Washlngtou" were
ptibllMbed during the nineteenth cen
tury. In 1837 Joseph Alien of Phila
delphia purchased the copyright and
brought out the "twenty-seventh edl
tlou, greatly improved," though Mr
Weems bad beeu dead since 182 ft.
It enn do no harm to" give a brief ac
count of Parson Weems - life. As the
anecdotal biographer of Washlugtou

gave It up to go to England and pre

op In London to admit him to holy
orders. Heturulug to America, he waa
•till worse off, aa there was no Angli
can bishop In the new world at that
time. However, he finally became a
preacher, though It is said that bo
cared llttlo for creed, being willing to
preach In a church of any denomina
tion. H* appears never to have held a
regular rectorate. When he was about
thirty yeara old, ho became a book

for Matthow Caroy, the Philadelphia
publisher. He also itegan writing

Parson Weema had a reputation as
an amateur comedian and as one of
the best fiddlers lu Virginia. IWien he
had no opportunity to exhort through
sermons, be diverted tbe people through
music and ainusiug antics. He was, It
appears, a stern moralist and In many
respects an admirable character, a
credit to hla period. As an author Mr.
Weems eauuot withstand the fiirce

THAT Washington wss very well
off in tble world's goods Is a
matter of »oaiuiou knowledge.

matters Is 'hot so widely known. He

his success lu both tbess professions.

Tbs litters mentioned were written
by Washington to hla private secre

New Hairipehlre, -who occupied tbst
confidential post durtug the last six
teen years of tbe great mau'a life.

H Is well known that Washington
provided lu his will for the liberation
of his slaves sfter tlis death of his
widow. While he lived, however, he
took good care to see that his slaves
served, him properly and that they did
not permit dreams of liberty to disturb
their equilibrium. When the capital
of the iiaiiuu was removed to Phila
delphia, Washington took a number
of slaves from Ills Mount Vernon es
tate to serve in the presidential man
sion, a house rented by the president.
It appears from the following remarks
i In a letter to Mr. !.enr from Richmond
I f>st Washington was worried lest
I some of his negroes might obtain their
i liberty under Psnnsylvaula'^laws:

Ing rather than In extravagauee. He
urged economy upon all the king's
courtiers, an well as upon the gov«ru

the reckless, pIu IIKIIIK aristocracy. The
high fliers of French society laughed
loud and long, and they determined to
esrry out M. de Silhouette's advice by
a report to burlesque. Accordingly
they economized by wearing coats
without folds or ruftlos, using snuff
boxes made of plain wood and wear
lug hats without rosettes. Those who
had been patronizing portrait painters
turned to the "shadow picture" lu

Scarcely anybody was too poor to pay
