Sister Mine: So you do remem
ber "the things of long ago, and are
glad to live them over in your imagi
nation; 'and you say "we thought
that clumsy old vehicle with the red
Morocco lining the grandest thing
in all the world." So we did, sister
mine, and I am very pleased at your
remembrance of it.
In those days carriages were near
ly as large as some rooms one sees
the present time and so sub
stantial! The horses looked so
heavy, trotting in so stately a style.
that they would be sneered at as too
low in this last age. The dignified
old negro driver seemed just to fit
in, for young darkies rarely ever
handled the reins "before the war."
Rut now the vehicles are mere
hams not made for durability-
only for glare and glitter and so
heap that most anybody can own
Surely to us older ones who have
seen so many changes "since the
war," these seem degenerate days
in some respects. The "bottom rail
is on top" now, and blood, family
and merit sink into insignificance
before money and that new com
modity called "cheek." But I digress!
Dear sister, can you picture our
visits to grandpapa? Just think of
that clear, pebbly spring, that rip
pled from the bottom of the great
sink-hole, and what a fearful climb
it was to us when our feet were
small! And dou't you know that in
after years, when we re-visited the
place, that awful sink-hole seemed
a mere depression compared to our
childish ideas? Ana on leant you
ust taste that sweet honey and the
snowy biscuits tnai granamama
seemed always to have on hand?
And as for that chicken gravy
none ever tasted liRe it I It was
'food fer te gots," as an old German
used to say.
I am reminded of the jolliest time
of all the year, exceptChrlstmas. It
was "ice tilling time and by-the-wav
this was something few child
ren enjoyed, for it was not everyone
who owned an lce-nouse.
Owing to fickle winters, ice did
not form every year; so that when
the ice was pronounced thick enough
(that is from three to four inches on
the average) it was a great time
with us. The two doors of the ice
house had been left open all sum
mer, and now it had been cleaned
out: fresh straw had been crammed
in between the lining ana tne out
ide. and great loads of sawdust
hauled ready for the ice. When the
day arrived everything was astir so
much earlier than usual, vve, sis
ter dear, had scarcely slept the
night before, so full were we of the
coming morrow. JNo ijueen oi tne
Mav had ever anticipated more
pleasure than did we two little
tots as "uaii me eariy, motner
dear," fell from our lips after being
tucked in bed and admonished to
go to leep.
So, when the morning came, every
one on the place was running to and
fro. servants bustling about ana
fragrant odors from the kitchen in
dicated more cooking than usual
for "the hands" had to be fed, al
though we lived in town this same
Chattertowu. How we ran from
house to kitchen, making cook cross
as a Dean Aim now anxiously we
strained our eyes for a sight of the
first wagon-load of ice from some
Dond near town!
As we sat upon the fence, well
cloaked and hooded, we clapped our
little hands for joy, never once
thinking of Jack Frost's nimble flng
ers as he touched and tinted our
cheeks and noses, until they fairly
glistened; or may be mother would
call us in "to warm" all of which
we thought quite a waste of time
and as the rumbling wagons drew
near, and the "four horse team'
champed their bits, while their
sides smoked like a furnace, we
would eagerly watch the great blocks
of frozen water dash and slide into
the vawninir mouth ready to receiv
them! And now. can you not fancy
vou hear the clear ringing voices of
the brawny negro men as tney sung
at their work, now and then stop
ping long enough to get a "swig'
out of the fat brown jug that was al
wavs in its place at such times?
Yes, and we thought nothing of
then ; not much use for temperance
laws. Negroes were "treated a
Christmas time with egg-nog, and
every oue, great and small, was
called up early in the morning and
civen a "dram," all of which was
considered the right thing; for cus
torn had made it proper; but then i
those days drunkeness was not
disease, as liquors were pure.
Negroes were eating their white
bread then, for never were peopl
happier than they. No responsi
bilitv, well cared for, plenty to eat
and to wear, nothing to lose all
gain though freedom was what
thev all looked foward to. And
thought it so strange too, that old
black mammy would always say
when asked what she would rather
have. "Give me my freedom." But
I have spun this too long. Good
bye, until the next.
