THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE.
1 don't believe that ten out of
every 10,000 peoplu in this country
know where tlio Declaration of Inde
pendence is. Most men in Washing
ton think thai it is in Independence
Hall, Philadelphia. Inasmuch ns
very intelligent men and women havu
naked mo (lining the past two or
tin cc years in many instances where
the otigiunl of tho "great charter
of our independence" is, and whero
Jefferson's til st draft is kept, and
what has become of tho desk on
which the Declaration was written
and the table on which it was signed,
I thought the other day that 1 would
tell nil that I know about their
whereabouts bcfoie another Inde
pendence Day passed over our heads.
The Declaration of Independence,
Jefferson's original draft, nnd the
desk on which be wrote it, arc all in
the libraiy of the Department of
State. The table on which the
Declaration was signed by the an
cestors of some of us will be gather
ed in there with the lest some day,
but just now it is in Independence
Hall in Philadelphia. I went up to
the Department of State yesterday
expressly to look nt the Declaration,
the dtaft and the desk. The libiary
of the Dcpaitment of State is on the
third floor, the entrance being just
in front of the elevator shaft. It is
a well-conceived loom, small, but
so well nnatigod and so tastefully
finished that it impresses you ns
larger than it is. It is two stoiies
high, witli alcoves on botli floors.
The central lectaugular room, upon
which the alcoves open, is well pro
portioned, and from its tiled lloor to
its well-modelled ceiling is pleasing
to the eye. As you t'lilcr through
the noi Uit door you look directly
thiough the south door and over a
poitico down the Potomac, beyond
Alexandria, the Washington monu
ment looming up in the middle dis
tance. On the eastern wjII of the
main room, between two alcoves,
hangs a cabinet of some well-polished
dark wood, neatly but plainly con
structed, with ery little ornamenta
tion. It is about five feet high and
THE DECLAKATION OF IXDEr-ENDEXCE.
From the key resting in the key
hole depends a card with the printed
legend : "The original of the De
claration of Independence." You
open the cabinet bj' pulliug on this
key, lor there is no knob of any
sort. The doors are carefully joined,
so that they open very slowly. With
in, at ihe back of the shallow cabi
net, fiamcd separately under glass,
are the original Declaration of Inde
pendence with the original signatures
and the original draft in Jefferson's
handwriting. The Declaration is on
one large sheet of parchment, and
hangs above the dralt, which is on
two sheets of the small legal cap
paper of that day, torn at the origi
nal creases. On the inside of tlio
northern door of the cabinet you see
a small cngiaving of Jefferson's
head in piofile, which shows what an
ugly nose he had. But yon turn
from that at once to the Declaration
and the draft. The paichment on
which the Declaration is written is
discolored in many places, and on
the edges and in one or two spots at
the surface slightly abraded. You
can read every word of it with ease,
although the ink has plainly faded ;
but when you come to the signatures
you lind that all have faded gicatly ;
that only a few-aro at all distinct;
that many arc cither indecipherable
or invisible, and that the rest can
only be recognized by straining at
once your eyesight and your memory.
The first man to sign the Declara
tion when, as Jeffeison afterward
said jokingly, the attacks of the
horseflies from the neighboring
stables upon the silk-stockinged legs
of the. members had become so in
tolerable that they weie obliged to
stop debating about it was John
Hancock. Everybody knows his
bold autograph, which, he said, as
he wrote it, John Bull could rend
without spectacles. I am sorry to
say that it no longer stands out
more plainly than the others.
In fact, it is not so distinct
as some of them. The " John "
is plain enough, though faded, but
the "Hancock" looks rugged. Look
ing at the other signatures generally
j'ou see that those of tho Now
Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode
Island and Connecticut members on
the extreme right, and those of the
Gcorjjia members on tho extreme
left, arc the only ones that can be
The signatures of Josiah Baitlctt
and William Whipple of New Hamp
shire arc at the head of this column.
Then come those of Samuel Adams,
John Adams, Robert Tient l'ayno
and Elbiidge Gerry of Massachu
setts. Then those of Stephen Hop
kins (whose hand shook, but with
palsy and not fear, nnd whoso auto
graph is legible when firmer signa
tures bnvp faded away) and William
Ellcry of Rhode Island. Then those
of Roger Sherman, Samuel Hunting
ton, William WilliamB and Oliver
Wolcott of Conneitlcut tho hitter
not so distinct ns tho rest. In the
next column to tho left the auto
graphs of William Floyd, Philip
Livingston, Francis Lewis and Lewis
Morris of New York can bo made
out with little dilliculty, although
the autograph of Motris seems to be
fading very rapidly. Of the New
Jersey members I could make out
the autographs of Richnid Stockton,
John Witherspoon nnd Finncis Hop
kinson. I tried to trace the signa
tures of tho other two, John Ilnrt
and Abraham Clink, but I had to
fall back on my imagination. The
only two in tlio next column, which
comprises the Pennsylvania and
Delaware delegations, decipherable
with the naked eye, seem to be
Robert Mortis nnd Benjamin Rush
of Pennsylvania. 1 looked in vain
for the names of Benjamin Franklin,
John Morton, Geotge Clymer, James
Smith, George Taylor, James Wilson
and George Ross of Pennsylvania,
ami Uresar Rodney, George Read
nnd Thomas Mclvean of Dclawate.
The name of Samuel Chase of Mary
land can be seen nt the head of the
next column. Thcic is just a sug
gestion of William Paca and the gal
lant Charles Carroll (who added "of
Carrollton" in order that there might
be no mistake) in two lines of wav
ing pale ink below Chase's auto
graph, but I could not discover the
name of Thomas Stone of Maryland.
I made out nnder these the names of
Gcotgo Wythe and Ricliaid Ileniy
Lee of Viiginin. I ttied to think
that I saw the signatuic of Thomas
Jeffeison, which I knew ought to
come next, but if 1 saw it it was
with the eye of faith. Nor could 1
sec the autoginphs of Thomas Nel
son, Jr., Francis Lightfoot Lee and
Cat tor Braxton, nor that of big Ben
jamin Harrison, also of Virginia.
It was the heavy Ilatrison, Jeffer
son says, who, when John Hancock
said something about tho necessity
of their "all hanging together," and
Benjamin Franklin added: "Yes,
indeed ; wc must all hang together,
or assuredly we shall all hang sepa
rately." It was Harrison who
growled at thin, little Elbridgc Gerry
of Massachusetts, in his deep bass :
"When it comes to the hanging I
shall have the advantage of 3-ou. It
will be all over with me long before
j'ou have done kicking in the air.'1
Harrison's fat signature is now as
ghostly as though it were his own
shade. I could not find the names
of the North Carolina signers, Wil
liam Hooper, Joseph llewes and
John Penn ; but underneath the
place where they ought to have been
I found the name of Edward Rut
ledge of South Carolina, and some
distance below it was that of Arthur
Middleton of the same State. But
in the interspace I 6aw neither of
the names of the other two South
Carolina signcis, Thomas Heyward,
Jr., and Thomas Lynch, Jr. Away
up in the upper left-hand corner the
name3 of the tlnec Geotgians stood
out distinctly Button Gwinnett,
Lyman Hall and George Walton ;
but the name of Matthew Thornton
of New Hampshire is neither with
the other New Ilampsliite names nor
anywhere else so far as I could see.
I wish the President or Secretaiy
Bayard would ask Congiess to ap
point a commission to restore the
niis-ing names on this immortal do
cument. A commission was created
by Congress a few years ago, I
think, for the purpose of restoring
the whole parchment to Us original
condition. I don't know what be
came of it, but evidently it did noth
ing; and, evidently, too, something
oiifjht to be done. I presume that
with pioper lenses every letter on
the paichment could be traced now,
but it may not be possible to do so
ten yrais hence. The original draft
in Jefferson's familiar handwriting
is as easy to rend as on the day he
penned it. You can trace every
change in the language made by his
collcugues on the committee. How
very unimpoitniit their interlinea
tions weie! No one has any claim
on Jefferson's fame as a mastcily
