Document on August Second.
According to the opinions of the
latest historical authorities both the
school children of by gone days ami
those of the present time have been
taught Incorrectly as to the projier In
dependence day of the nation. No one
dale see 111 x to devtdop such excltahh;
emotions ox does the mention of the
Fourth of July, but how unattractive
would It. xeern If we were to slate that
tho second of July Ix the day of fire
crackers, bombs and Kornan candles.
And yet. according to Mr. William 11.
Michael. Chief Clerk and Historian of
the Department of Ktate,, "The real In
dependence Day ix the second of July."
Since we bent over our childhood
histories we have always had an idea
that our fathers severed the ties with
t:reat Britain on the Fourth of July,
1 7TB, and we have had word of no less
an authority than Thomas Jefferson,
author of that hallowed Instrument,
that the Declaration was signed on
that dat. on whose anniversary the
great father of democracy died. But
Mr. Michael says no, and for years he
has tolled for bis country beneath the
same roof which shelters the sacred
document; has had tho nation's arch
ives at his Angers' ends.
I NDKI'KXDKXt'K ON JULY 2.
"The Independence of the United
States wax declared by resolution on
the 2d of July, and the adoption of the
form of Declaration on the 4th of July
wax a secondary matter," says Mr.
Michael. "It Ix a little strange that
more importance was not attached to
the 2d of July in connection with the
Declaration of Independence. The res
olution Introduced by Richard Henry
Iee, was passed on that day (July 2.
1770). Thlx was really the vital point
the crucial Juncture."
The real act of lndeendence, which
Mr. Michael has had reproduced In fac
simile, was then the Iec resolution
"That these United colonies are. and
of right ought to lie. free and Inde
pendent states; that they are absolved
from all allegiance to the British
Crown, nnd that nil political connection
between them anil the State of Creat
Britain Is. and ought to lie, totally
SKi.XKD AUJUST 2.
Concerning the actual date of the
Declaration's signing, Mr. Michael
says: "Mr. Jefferson in his account
states that all the members present
except Mr. Dickinson, signed the Dec
laration In the evening of the Fourth
of July. The Journal shows that no
one signed It that evening except Mr.
Hancock and Mr. Thomson. Tho
Journal entry Is: 'Signed. John Han
cock, President. Attest. Charles Thorn
son. Secretary. On August
2. the Declaration, as engrossed under
the order of Congress, was sicned bv
all of the members of Congress
What really did happen on July 4
of that year of years was the final
adoption of a draft of the "form of
announcing the fact to the world
that independence had been decreed
two davs before. Jefferson had writ
ten this draft In his Philadelphia
apartnMnts. consisting of a ready-fur
nlshcd parlor and bedroom in the new
brick house of Hynian Gratz. at the
soul h west corner of 7th and Market
streets, "on the outskirts of the city."
The Penn National Bank now occupy
ing the site of this dwelling. Is In the
very business heart of Philadelphia.
WKITTKN LATK IN JULY.
But the ' original Declaration," which
all pilgrims to Washington formerly
gazed upon in awe and reverence, was
not ordered written for more than two
weeks after that long but unjustly
hallowed July 4. On July 19. Con
gress ordered that the Declaration be
"fairly engrossed on parchment," and
that "the same, when engrossed, be
signed by every member of Congress."
Some time within the next two weeks
the beautiful pen work which thous
ands of Americans have since mar
veled at and admired was executed
uiion the great strip of sheepskin now
locked away In the Department of
State at Washington.
On August 2. 1770, just a month
after the real stroke of independence
this great sheepskin was unrolled in
the presence of the Continental Con
gress, in Independence Hall, with the
wording of the corrected draft it was
carefully "compared at the table."
This formality gone through with,
it whb spread out upon a desk and
signed by all of the members of Con
gress present. Fifty of these fathers
of the republic signed on that day.
Six of the revered "signers,, did not
affix their signatures until later dates

about August 27. Richard TTenrv T.ee.
Virginia; Eldrldge Oerry. Massachu

later, or 1781. Matthew Thornton,

take his seat until November four
months after the adoption of the Dec

not members of Congress on July 2
or 4, were allowed to sign on August

were Benjamin Rush, James Wilson,

The Day of Days Among: Uncle Sam's
Lnc.le Ram makes the Fourth of
July a greater day among his sailors
than even Christmas. Indeed. It Is
the greatest day for relaxation and
pleasure for Jackie In the whole year.
The early Secretaries of the navy
established the custom and It has been
almost, religiously maintained invio
late through the long line of officials
who have succeeded them.
Independence day belongs to the
Jackie. Jiix superiors recognize that
his life Is In some respects a bard
one. To Mm Is denied the ties of
family, the friendships and all the
other Interests and diversions of life
that make up the landsman's existence,
so for this reason Uncle Sam believes
that hlx sailors should have as many
holidays as possible.
To make Independence Day the big
gest day of all is to give the day a
special significance which cannot fall
In some desrrec at least to carry its
lesson of patriotic duty to thoo who
serve the republic on the seas.
Hence commodores and captains
always plan to remain In port on
July 4. Then, after dressing ship, fir

The Navy Department has wisely

ever an open field is available, the

from members of the same ship,
oftener between teams representing
different ships and in some extreme

quoth Aylward, "that you might do

knows that there was never a set of

There we shall bide, and it is like
enough that for a month or more you
may find us there, ere we are ready
for our voyage back to France."
'It was hard indeed for Alleyne to
break away from these two new but
hearty friends, and so strong was the
ccmbat between his conscience and his
inclinations that he dared not look
round, lest his resolution should slip
away from him.
The path which the young clerk hau
now to follow lay through a magnifi
cent forest of the very heaviest timber,
where the giant boles of oak and of
beech formed long aisles in every di
rection, shooting up their huge
branches to build the majestic arches
of Nature's own cathedral. It was
very still there in the heart of the
woodlands. The gentle rustle of the
branches and the distant cooing of
pigeons were the only sounds which
broke in upon the silence, save that
once Alleyne heard afar off a merry
call upon a hunting bugle and the
shrill yapping of the hounds. He
pushed on the quicker, twirling his
staff merrily, and look'nsr out at every

a rouKh, powerful peasant, with cap
