Ringing Words of Patrick Henry
Are Enshrined in Hearts of
Ail Free Men.
"I know not what course others may
take, but aa for me, give- me liberty
or Qlve me death 1"
THESE were the Ringing, closing
words of, Patrick llonry on
March 23, 1775, as lie delivered
his Immortal and eloquent address In
support of the resolutions passed by the
second revolutionary convention of
Virginia, of which he was an honored
delegate.
For six months the various colonies
had been making military prepara
tions. Lord Dunmoro in Virginia wrote
In December, 1774, to the earl of Dart
mouth: "Every county Is now arming a com
pany of 'men, whom they call an In
dependent company for the avowed
purpose of protecting their committees
and to be employed' against the govern
ment If occasion require."

Patrick Henry.
Introduced in the revolutionary con
gress in Virginia, it met some oppo
sition, not because it was premature,
but because Patrick.' Henry came out
more boldly for war than anyone in
the colonies had done before that time.
Nearly fifty years later Thomas Jef
ferson said: "After nil, It must be al
lowed that ratflek Henry was our
leader in the measures of the resolu
tions in Virginia, and in that respect
more is due to him . than to any other
person. ... He left us all be
hind." John Roane, who. heard Patrick Hen
ry's famous . speech, described it to
Edward Fontaine in 1834, and this
manuscript is In the library of Cornell
university :
"You remember, sir, the conclusion
of the speech, so often declaimed in
various ways by schoolboys 'Is life
so d,ear,' or peace so sweet, as to be
purchased at the price of chains and
slavery?- Forbid it, Almighty God ! I
know not what course others may
take, but as for me, give me liberty,
or give me death ! JJe gave each of

these words a meaning which, is not
conveyed by the reading or delivery
of them in the ordinary way.
"After a solemn pause, he raised
his eyes and chained hands toward
heaven, and prayed, in words and
tones which thrilled every heart, 'For
bid it, Almighty God I'. He then
turned toward the timid loyalists of
the house, who were quaking with ter
ror at the idea of the consequences of
participating in proceedings which
would be visited with the penalties of
treason by the British crown; and he
slowly bent his form yet nearer to the
earth, and said: 'I know not what
course others may take,' and he ac
companied the words with his hands
still crossed, while he seemed to be
weighted down with his emotion.
"Continuing, he lifted one hand firm
ly, as if, holding. a dagger, with the
point aimed at his breast. He stood
like a Roman senator defying Caesar,
while the unconquerable spirit of Cato
of Utlca flashed from.. every feature;
and he closed the grand appeal with
the solemn words, 'or give me death V
which sounded with the awful endence
of a hero's dirge, fearless of' death,
and Victorious in death; and he suit
ed the action to the word by a blow
upon, the left breast with the right
hand, which seemed to drive the dagger
to the patriot's heart."
An Urgent Celebration
By Willis Brook
My father was Marshal one Fourth of
July. '
And made a long-lasting impression,
With his sash and his sword and a
plume waving high,
As he gallantly rode a gay thorough
bred by
At the head of the gorgeous pro
cession. Ia a garlanded chariot next to the
tand , , . ..
My mother was Liberty's Goddess;
With a cap on her head and a sword
in her hand,
Begowned in the stripes of our glori
ous land, ,
Set off with a star-spangled bodice.
You see, this was ever so long, long
ago ."' .
Before they were known to each
other; ; '- ,
And.of course, since he wasnt so
much as her beau,
Neither one of them had any reason
to know
- .That they were my father and
mother.
Now the Marshal, you know, ia ex
pected to ride
Up and down the whole length of
the column;
And the Goddess is always supposed
to preside
As the guardian of Freedom, Amer
ica's pride,
With a dignity stately and solemn.
For a Marshal is one who's appointed
to see
That the marchers are all in their
stations;
And a Goddess, of course, is expected
v..
So far above earthly enticements that
sne -
Will indulge in no human flirtations.
But I've heard people say 'twas the
talk of the town
That this Marshal was so patriotic
He pranced and cavorted his steed up
and down
Within sight of the red, white and
blue of that gown
As if held there by fetters despotic.
And that Goddess, I'm told, without
turning h;r head.
Saw each of these purposeful
prances,
And reflected her colors from cheeks
blushing red
Under temples of white; and her eyes,
it is said.
Were bright with the blue of her
glances.
So, that's how it comes that the
Fourth, of July
Provokes me to glad celebration.
If the Marshal and Goddess' had let it
go by
And taken no part, who the dickens
would I
Have been, in the scheme of Crea
tion? - (Copyright)

DESIGNED FAMOUS OLD HALL
Philadelphia Lawyer . Architect of
Building Where Immortal Declara-,

Independence hall stands not only
as the place of rest for the Liberty
bell, but as the old Pennsylvania
statehouse, and the building wherin
.the Declaration of Independence was
'signed in 1776, with John Hancock at
its head. It is still in excellent pres
ervation, and its quaint red and white
front and brick belfry give it a,n air
of romance and antiquity.

forty years ago of the identical design,
now in the Pennsylvania Historical so
ciety's collection, set the question at
rest.
It was none other than Andrew Ham
ilton, who not only held high office in
the province, but as a lawyer made
the reputation of the Philadelphia bar.

The paragraph which led np to tho

now:
