home, the place we had heard nnd read so
much of, aud all woro soon on tho ground,
w hich seemed almost A sacred spot to us.
Passing up the long grnvoled and shaded
walk which led from tho old irou gato to
tho largo dwelling of our Tennessee hero,
tho path divided uud passed on each side
of a spot covered with ivy. On reaching
tho house a servant of Jackson, tlie
only one now living, met us at tlie
doer. Old Uncle Allred is a goad old
negro, who was born in 18(111, within
400 yards of where ho now lives. He
carried us first to tho tomb of Jackson,
which is situated in one corner of the
flower garden just east ol tho house; this
totuh is very imosihg and was erectod iu
lHlia. After we hud viewed the pretty trees,
the mnguolias, willows, and pretty (lowers
and read tho epitaph of his loving wilo
who sleeps at tho hero's si.de, we all gath
ered around Uncle Alfred and listened
w ith attentive car to his story of Jackson's
life w hich was related in a graphic manner
by his old servant, w ho is now eighty-six
years old. He loves to talk of Jackson
and his grand and noble deeds, und of his
kindness to his slaves and everybody.
When asked w hy there was uo epitaph on
his master's tomb he replied that Jackson
had requeued only hisuge, birth aud deutli
le carved on his tomb, saying thut hi.ilory
would tell the rest, nnd so it bus, for wo
have only to read history to find what a
great and good man An Irew Jackson was.
We left the grave where our hero waa
buried and returned to the hou-sa where
we registered our names, and while there
we saw many things ul interest; ninong
them were his library, hut-ruck, Indian
tomahawk, the Creek Indian's pie of peace,
