WASHINGTON AND THE AMERICAN ARMY
NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE

marched over the Neck, through the fortification gates, and entered Boston in triumph. And now, for the first time since the Pilgrims landed, Massachusetts was free from the dominion of England. May she never again be subject to foreign rule-never again feel the rod of oppression!"
" Dear Grandfather," asked little Alice, "did General Washington bring our chair back to Boston?"
" I know not how long the chair remained at Cambridge," said Grandfather. "Had it stayed there till this time, it could not have found a better shelter. The mansion which General Washington occupied is still standing, and his apartments have since been tenanted by several eminent men. Governor Everett, while a professor in the university, resided there. So, at an after period, did Mr. Sparks, whose labors have connected his name with the immortality of Washington. And at this very time a venerable friend of your Grandfather, after long pilgrimages beyond the sea, has set up his staff of rest at Washington's headquarters."
" You mean Professor Longfellow, Grandfather," said Laurence. "Oh, how I should love to see the author of those beautiful Voices of the Night!"
" We will visit him next summer," answered Grandfather, "and take Clara and little Alice with us-and Charley too, if he will be quiet."
