How Jefferson Was Warned.
. few years ago. visiting Char

' U.ersity of Virginia. 'Mr. Charles'
Kagey. took me for a drive to Monti

entrance to the park, the old negro
gate keeper sounded the bell that
announced to the mansion the coming
On our w..v through the grounds,
we stopped by a little graveyard, en
closed with an iron railing, to stand
with uncovered heads by the simple
shaft on which is carved: "Here is
buried Thomas Jefferson, Author of
the Declaration of Independence, of
the Virginia Statute for Religious
Freedom. and the Father of -the Uni
versity of Virginia.
Afterward. as we stood upon one
of -te columned porches of the house
In which he once lived. my friend

for life. escap:ng ;ri the British
General Tarletor. who was seeking
It w%as in the Spring of 1781. The
British army under the traitor Bene
dict Arnold and General Philips was
laying waste Eastern Virginia, andl
it looked as if Richmond must fall
into the enemies' hands. The legis
I lature left Richmond to meet at
Charlottesville and Thomas Jefferson,
who was then governor, came back
to his home at Monticello, two miles
from the town. In some way Corn
wallis learned of this action of the
legislature and sent General Tarleton
to capture its members and the gov
ernor. It seemed almost as if his
plans would not fail, for they were
carried out with the utmost secrecy
and Tarleton must reach Charlottes
ville before the tidings of his propQs
ed raid could possibly be carried
to the endangered men in the little,
shut in mountain village. If he had
succeeded, history would have been
written 'differently. In ihe legisla
ture were Richard Henry Lee,
Thomas Nelson, Jr., and Benjamin
Harrison, the ancestor of two of our
Presidents: Patrick Henry and other
nod men, and there was Jefferson.
We can not help asking, What if
Tarleton had succeeded? What if
Jefferson, Lee, Harrison, Patrick
Henry and the rest had been cap
tured, tried for treason, transported to
England, or perhaps hung?
We must still have in the end won
the battle. for Liberty and Indepen
dence. but how much longer would
have been the struggle. Jefferson
would never have been president. The
Louisiana purchase, told of in the
preceding article woui not have been
made. The great country west of the
M1ississippi wo'uld have been New
France. or we would have had before
us another bloody war.
Upon what seemingly little things,
hang great results. One morning in
early June. Tarleto'n reached Cuckoo
Tavern, about forty miles from Char
lottesville. A young -inn-keeper of
Charlottesville was at Cuckoo Tavern,
and he suspected Tarleton's design
and made up his mind to warn Jef
ferson and the legislature. He was
riding the "best-bred and fleetest
mare in seven counties" and he
knew of an old abandoned trail,
brier grown and almost impassable
shorter than the main road. by
which Tarleton's men must travel.
To think with him was to act, and
with the 'nough: he was off like the

more thaii n thirtyv miles, he reached
