the course of transfer from its !""'
of many years under a canopy now
removed, it was split in two. Tra
break was a renewal of an old or
that had been mended with cement.
The rock will present a united face
again when it is cemented and re
stored to its original baae at tne
water line on the harbor shore, to
which it will be lowered from ita

The accident recalled to historians
the fact that when the break first
occurred in 1775 it was pointed to

colonies from England.
Last night Plymouth Rock was cp

had been early on the scene and t?

the great fabric of the United States

briefly the early struggles of the
Pilgiima he went on:
"It ia clearer than anything else,
to those who look into it with con
siderate eyes, that these men. the
leaders ecoeciallv. had . nrnfnnnd
consciousness that they were engaged
in a vastly greater task than estab
lishing a colony. They felt In the
depths of their being that they were
laying the foundation of an empire
of a mighty nation. That which
counted then and has counted
since waa that they set the spiritual
above the material.
They never for a moment thonrht f

seems, if not actually avowed, to be !
