that he believed the whole thing had
been arranged between the assodla

on him. I then told him if he would
consent to overcome minor objections
that I would prove to the country the
position of the association by going
before the next Legislature and ask
ing it to make any change he required
but he must let the association pay
the money, and not feel his State or
himself were lowered by the act.

It was at this time that her suffer

to travel lying prone on an air bed.
But still she kept to her work. - In
1857 the ??harter allowing the Ladles'
Mount Vcrnon Association to take
charge of Mount Vcrnon for till time
was introduced in the Virginia Legis
lature, in language that met Mr.
Washington's wishes. In spite of Ann
Cunningham's heroic work it was
beaten, but in the early part of 1858
the bill granting the charter was pass
ed and made a law.
Here is what she wrote to a friend
In description of the Immediate sequel
of ihat legislation:
"Bui the wear and tear of the last
j struggle bad been too much for me,
and on the day appointed by Mr.
j Washington for the lawyers and the
two vice regents to meet and witness
I the signing of the papers in my room
I awoke with a struggle for breath

'another for hours. The friends were)
horrified for fear that I should die be

"After the lawyers bad waited a
long time and even offered to postpone
and leave my system was clamed. One
of their number was sent to see if 1
was of sound mind! All the papers
were read in due form, and then a
gentleman knelt beside my couch and
held the papers for my .signature; my
lifeless lingers could hold a pen but
a few moments, could only make two
or three letters at a time. Finally all
was got through with and the papers
with my fearful scrawl carried to the
archives of the State. I was in a
mental stupor for three weeks! Has

in by February 22, 1859, and only two
years intervened between that time
and tho outbreak of the civil war.
Formal possession of the homo and Its
surrounding grounds was taken by the
Ladies' Association, February 22, ISGO,
but prior to that repairs had been be
gun on the buildings. In fact. Miss
Cunningham, having accomplished the
purchase of the sacred spot, found her
self confronted with the necessity of
repairing the place and of restoring
it to what it had been when Washing
ton lived in it.
For this additional funds had to be
raised, fairs were given, money was
collected, and in several instances the
vice regents gave liberally of their
own money. The repairs were hard
ly under way when the war broke.
Ai that time Miss Cunningham was
on her inothor's plantation in South
Carolina. Her first thought was for
the preservation of Washington's home

all through the bitter struggle the

North not only kept .Mount Vernon
