Sarah Smith Stafford aged 77, is a bustling Little woman residing at Trenton new Jersey where she has lived for the last half Century although bom in Allentown n. J. In conversation she is the most affable ladies the Only difficulty being to follow the thread the narrative As her glib Tongue runs Over whole volumes unwritten history. She first attracted attention in Washington by the persistency with which she urged a claim hers pending before Congress. Although she met with Many rebuffs nothing could suppress her. Quot Congress Quot said so Quot will grow tired listening before i become tired so it happened for at length Congress Afi owed her claim $8,000 for pay said to be due her father Lieut. Stafford who served in the Bon homme Richard and the Little woman rejoiced. Miss Stafford s rooms Are full relics the revolution and the earlier Days. There is a sword used in King Phillip s War and another wielded by Ephraim Bacon at the Battle Bunker Hill an Indian Hatchet revolutionary canteens Cannon Baus from the Battle Trenton stirrups worn at the Battle Lexington a half gallon measure owned by Miles Standish and a Scarf and piece the court dress worn before the King in England by his wife mrs. Rose Standish John Barry s letter recommendation to James Bayard Stafford and a manuscript which Quot contains the trial and court martial Gen. Arnold at Morristown april 1780, for there is also a boarding sword used by John Paul Jones in the memorable engagement Between the Serapis and the Bon homme Richard and an English Quot Mas quit Quot captured from the British frigate Serapis september 23, 1779. But the most precious treasure among miss Stafford s relics is the Flag which led John Paul Jones to his most Brilliant victories. It was in rescuing these same stars and stripes from the enemy s grasp that lieutenant Stafford won glory for himself and Laid the foundation for his daughter s claim. At present the Flag is eight feet seven inches in length and six feet five inches in Width the edges however me evidence having been considerably diminished by relic Hunters whom miss Stafford characterizes As Quot More patriotic than there Are thirteen stripes seven red and six White. Ujan the White stripes in Large letters is this inscription Quot Flag the Bon homme Richard and Alliance the stars Are White a Blue Field they number Only twelve disposed in parallel rows. Before the adoption the National Flag by Congress some ladies in Philadelphia employed their Leisure hours in making a Flag which they presented to the Board Marine. Although there were at this time thirteen states in the Union one them had not yet subscribed to the articles confederation and As an Odd Star would destroy the regularity the Field the Good ladies the Quaker City inserted Only twelve stars in the Flag which they made. The Board Marine presented the Flag to John Paul Jones who Toolkit with him to the Ranger. It was afterwards transferred to the frigate Alliance and continued to wave Over the alternate fortunes our country till 1784. In that year the Alliance was sold to Robert Morris and the Board Marine resolved to present the historic Flag to Lieut. James Bayard Stafford in acknowledgement his meritorious services during the War. The identity the Flag Over which thare was some question has been completely settled As Well by the testimony it those who fought under it As by the report submitted to the House representatives in april 1860, by the committee revolutionary claims.
