Webster in the Hay Field.
From a Letter of thirty Years Ago, Published
In Boston Journal.
One fine morning during the middle
of August, 1832, we took the Marshfield
stage for Cohasset en route for Boston as
it passed our door in Scituate. The only
passenger within was a stout gentleman,
in whose face intelligence, good humor
and benovolence were strongly indexed.
The driver introduced hi in as John Taylor,
who resided on the Webster farm at
Franklin, N. II. Tie informed me that
he was returning from a living visit of a
day or two at the Marshfield farm, and
that Mr. Webster had been tarrying at his
house for some time, and was about leaving
on an excursion to the White mountains
with the hope t'at the disease called
"harvest cold," which had annually attacked
him, might prove powerless in an
atmosphere of that altitude. Without
transgressing the true rule of conduct in
questioning a strantrer about his guests
and friend, I availed myself of the opportunity
to gather some information of the
"great Secretary." There had been rumors
in the newspapers that his general
health and physical powers were on the
decline. To a question on that point Mr.
Taylor leplied :
" His health and bodily strength are
good for u man of his age. I w ill give you
a sample: Last Friday week we had four
teen tons of English hay well made and
ready to put in the barii in the afternoon.
It was a busy day on the farm, and all
that could handle a rake or a pitch-fork
were pressed into the service. When we
came in to lunch in the forenoon, Mr.
Webster entered the kitchen and in a
playful manner and tone of voice said :
""'John Taylor, what wages will you
give me to work for you this afternoon?'
' 'I will give you half a dollar, sir.'
"'Why, John Taylor, I can not afford
to work for that price, and you underrate
my abilities. I can pitch as much hay as
anv other man.'
" 'It is on the supposition, sir, that you
are a good nana tnar i oner you tnose wages;
we get' our best men for a dollar a
day,' I leplied.
"If that is the case, John Taylor, I am
your man. I will finish my correspondence
with the department, eat an early dinner,
and be ready to take the field with you."
'As nooning on that day was short, and
by the time the teams were ready Mr.
Webster made his appearance, we drove
into the field ; the hav laid in winrows.
Mr. W. and myself pitched on to the same
cart. A ton was put on the cart, when he
took the whip and drove it up to the barn,
leaving me in the meantime at work in
the field. When unloaded he returned
with the empty cart, upon which we
pitched a ton, "making in all three tons
between us that afternoon, and one ton
and one-half as his part of the work. It
was a hot afternoon, and I observed what
I had before seen when he used muscular
exertion, he sweat more profusely than
most men ; it literally poured off "of him
like rain. When I met him the next
morning, said he: 'John Taylor, I have
slept sounder and feel in better health
than usual; howl wish I could only live
as you do; a farmer's life is the" most
rational mode of existence ; good food,
home-raised, with healthful work for the
day and sound sleep for the night. It
gives a man a clear head, a large heart
and strong hands.'"
In reply to my inquiry about the well-known
anecdote of hanging the scythe,
Mr. Taylor repeated it to me in the words
of Mr. Webster,asthe latter had frequently
told him the story as they sat together
under the shade of the tree on which the
scythe was hung. The tree, by the way,
is an oak, which may yet stand for centuries
to adorn a landscape the scenes of
which Were so dear to the heart of the
great statesman, who was compellod to
throw off the cares of State for a season to
recruit his overworked and exhausted
energies; and when ho roamed over the
scenes of his childhood and viewed the
distant blue of his native mountains,
"whose invigorating breezes waved overj
the enameled meadows and r.istled through
the forest, the retrospective poetry of hie
favorite Gray must have struck a sympathetic
chord in his bosom.
