This was the style of the better sort of houses in those Days and they Are still occasionally seen in the old settlements of Virginia. Mrs. A he Nutoff. It has been related to me of one Whoso authority i cannot doubt that the first meeting of colonel Wal Hiag ton with his future wife was olt Ira by accidental and too place eat my use of or. Chamberlayne who resided on Pam Ukey one of the branches of York River. Washington was on his Way to Williamsburg on somewhat pressing business when he met or. Chamberlayne who according to the Good .ot4 Virginia custom which for Bida n traveller to Para the door with oat Ming homage at the fireside of Boalt Alliy insisted on Hia a Topping an Lily or Fyfo i Fatt a i Anat it. Washington complied unwillingly for his business was urgent. But it is said that he was in no haste to depart for he bad met the lady of his Fate in the person of mrs. Martha Custis of the White House county of new Kent in Virginia. I have now before me a copy of an original picture of this lady taken about the Tim of which i am treating when she captivated the affections of Washington. It represents a figure rather Bellow the Middle Sie with Hasle eyes and hair of the same color finely rounded a rms a Beauty i Ful Chest and taper Waist dressed in a Blue milk Robe of the fashion of the Timeto and altogether furnishing a very sufficient apology to a Young eau Tieman of seven and Twenty for delaying his journey and perhaps forgetting his errand for a time. The Sun went Down and Rose again before Washington departed for Williams Burg leaving his heart behind him and perhaps carrying in Obei away in Exchange. Haying completed Bis business at the seat of govern ent he soon after visited the White House and being accustomed As my inform ant says to energetic and per Saver ing action won the lady and carried Lier to from a crowd of rival. The marriage took place in the Winter of 1750, but at what precise Date is not to be found in any record nor is it i believe within the recollection of any person Liui i a my Poi session a manuscript contain ing the particulars of various conversations with old Jeremy Washington s Black servant who was with him at Ruddock s defeat and accompanied him on his wedding expedition to the White House. Old Jeremy is still living while i am now writing and in full Possession of his faculties. His memory is most especially preserved and As might be expected he delights to talk of Massa George. The whole series of conversations was taken Down verbatim in the Peculiar phraseology of the old Man and it a quite impossible to read a record of Tia lining Chron Cia Oft a Early Days of Washington without receiving the Aill conviction of its perfect truth. Cribe on the fair Tablet within his own innocent bosom. Fear not that i am Atout at this late hour to inflict on you a lesson on general , academies and colleges have been founded for the education of the mind and heart to these we must leave them but what has been to encourage the education of the band the heart and the mind should indeed be enlightened pure and undefiled but the hand must be Busy and skilful. The secret of Lappinen consists in never suffering the energies to stagnate. Fortunately to the Farmer s business there a no want of constant employment if you can accustom your children to patient and cheerful labor you have secured for them the Means of happen eat and Independence. In other Tationa of life there must be a fortunate stretched on the Rock of a Tao easy hair who by their everlasting Yawn confess the pains and penalties of idl Neas a trat Mil Quot to two Sto ifa ii i Tievy r to Vade a Farmers dwelling. In training your children to willing Industry do not Over task their strength let them feel that they can be useful and their assistance is valued. There Are various employments in the House the Garden and the Field Well adapted to to Weir tender years never let their la Bor be such in kind or amount As shall make it disgusting and if possible make them derive from their labor some compensation in Money or relax Alienor indulgence never withhold the merited paise or them never to expect others to do for them that which they can As Well do for themselves but to rely a ion their own strength and to Trust to their own energies. Whatever May be their own Prospect in life teach them to depend on their own resources. Help them to cultivate an affectionate accommodating Dis p it Safion moderation in their pleas ures. Teach them to reverence god and love work a neither despise labor nor Iii Bandry which the Moat High god has them to Bear the Yoke in their youth and to do with All Diligence whatever their hands find to do so shall secure for them the competencies and happiness of which the mischance of this world cannot deprive them. And when you shall have performed All life a duties and enjoyed life s pleasures when a your earthly Hull fall into ruins when your wearied frames shall find quiet repose beneath the soil you Hae faithfully cultivated and when your spirits like shocks of Corn fully Ripe shall be gathered in store houses not made with hands eternal in the heavens your grateful children shall arise Aud bless your memory they shall be living monuments which shall Bear record that you Laid for them a nearly life habits of patient cheerful and contented Industry the foundation for a Manly virtuous and honorable Independence.
