A Beaker of dispatches and Basil was Only my half brother. But he was a Man and i had killed him. The doctrine of destiny which i had heard my father so often quote and with which Basil had struggled but soon believed was mastering me. The More the thoughts came to me of late the More argument i brought to Bear upon it the deeper i became entangled in the meshes. Even the Jolly company of a squad of soldiers who journeyed with me to fort Greenville did not Servo to keep up my spirits. Arriving at Greenville Gen. Wayne read the letter from Atalie set his lips tightly together and motioned me from the room. A what had she written a i asked myself. A could it be possible she refused to come Back or had she condemned me that he should so unceremoniously Send me from the that evening he sent a messenger saying i was wanted immediately at his Headquarters. A sit Down a said the general As i entered. A you have made a Brave trip. You can Tell me much about the British fort which i will hear from you in the a but tale a she is probably now on her Way to Canada. She is going Home and will be ready to receive me there when i return to the a general i want to Tell you something of myself. I want you to know who i am that in a a a Bosh you Are a foolish youth. This is War Timo a and he flourished Atalie Slotter to show that he knew what i alluded to. A i wish to reach he continued Gen. Washington As soon As possible with dispatches. I think you Are the Man to serve me. You Are also to go to new York and to return by Way of Tho lakes taking note of the attitude of the British As you move. The responsibility is great but then i can Trust a thank you general Wayne. Your words shall be a part of my a go now get ready for journey draw up any plans of the fort on the Miami of the Lake you May think necessary and Day after to Morrow you Start for the to Day Greenville Ohio is hardly a Day and a night from new York. The close of the last Century found the position of mad Anthony Wayne at least two months Distant from the Capitol of the United states. Slowly and tediously the journey was made by boat on horseback by lumbering Stagecoach or on foot. With these difficulties ahead and with my responsibility i left fort Green vile Early in july 1794 and arrived at Philadelphia where i found president Washington and delivered my letters on the 20th of August. At that very moment mad Anthony Wayne had broken the Back of the Indian confederacy and firmly planted the Banner of Progress on Ohio soil. The cheer of Victory from mad Anthony Wayne a soldiers at fallen timbers was the death Knell of the american Indian. The race from that time to the has been passing with time into the past and soon the word a a extinct will be written at the close of the pages of history which chronicles their movements. The canaanites gave place to the children of Israel tile american Indian to the children of Progress. Over the mingled bodies of dead pioneers and Savages the car of Advance has rolled Westward. The world has never seen such another transformation scene and it never will. Still for tilings Quot How killed him a Quot yes. Is not that enough you i have respect for Many you have done for to i forgive you for what you did at the she held out her hand. I took it in mine. A and now we must say Good Bye. Perhaps it would be better to try and forget me. I myself know How hard the past is to forget. But i know that by and by it will All seem dream like though the old feelings Muy sometimes she was gone. The vision had faded. Tile brightness was past. The old doctrine which my father had spoken of destiny came forcibly to me. What series of offences doomed me to the life i Lead. What made my father a Denizen of the Paris sewers and a murderer. Why should ids life be so divergent from that of the portly merchant who was passing. I could not understand them. But Grey hairs bring Wisdom if one will study to know. As i write a civil War is in Progress. A Man sits in the presidential chair whose Early life was spent in a struggle against poverty. Why should he not have been a Village Loafer. Why should he not have remained unheard of and unknown. Why because he those not to be. Be cause he chose to be master and not the slave of circumstance. The wind should not carry him hither and thither As its fickleness would. A twas not destiny. A twas not Fate. I see it now. It was the Over mastering will which fought the eddying current and came straight to Harbor. But the lesson came too late. I have seen an Empire develop but today i am in poverty. I have digged and planted others have reaped. As i write the past rises before me. But it is covered about with a hazy Mist. Atalie comes to me in memory but she seems like one from another world. I know mad Anthony Wayne never saw her after the Victory upon the Maumee. His body rested for years on a Bank Over looking the Bay of Presque Isle. Around me is the hum of the Busy world. Cities stand where forests stood. Over the grave of Hulse Ron Detta a Monument has been erected it is a court House standing in the City where the a Glaize and the Maumee mingle their Waters. The forests Are no longer forests they Are Small tracts of Wood land. Idle and curious peo pie Point me out As one who was with mad Anthony Wayne. That is All. It seems so Long ago to them that they wonder How i could live All this time. The Days Are Long and weary and i have written this that the hours might seem Shorter and that they who read it May know that i was not a child of destiny. To Day i heard a boy repeat a Lino of verse. I know not who wrote it. They ring in my ears and seem to be the wailing of my own soul.
