Landing of English 323 Years
Ago Remembered at
Cape Henry.
By the Associated Press.
CAPE HENRY, Va., April 26—Trib
ute was paid by 2,500 persons here to
<wy to the courage, fortitude and right
eousness of the brave little band of
Englishmen who came ashore at this
point 323 years ago to establish the
first permanent Anglo-Saxon civiliza
tion in a new world.
The throng stood within sight of a
rugged cross, planted on the wind
swept dunes, as Bishop A. C. Thomson
of the Episcopal diocese of Virginia
led the memorial services and lauded
the characters of the men who came
ashore from the three tiny ships—Sarah
Constant, Goodspeed and Discovery. The
cross stands where the colonists are
said first to have touched land to claim
the territory for God and King and
name the point Cape Henry.
Forced indoors by inclement weather,
the ceremonies were conducted in the
Cape Henry Casino. Mrs. Franz Nay
lor of Norfolk, named by the governor
to deliver the historical address, de
scribed the 127-day voyage, the land
ing at Cape Henry and the final settle
ment at Jamestown Island.
Short addresses were delivered by
Gov. John Garland Pollard of Virginia.
Gov. L. G Hardman of Georgia and
Brig. Gen. William F. Ladd of Con
“As we stand on this sacred spot we
feel gratitude to God and to our fore
fathers who braved the dangers of the
aea and fought successfully against
pestilence and savages to found the
greatest nation the world has ever
seen,” Gov. Pollard said. He paid trib
ute to the spirit of the doughty little
band, including Capt. John Smith, who
was in irons when the colonists came
ashore, but later the leader of the group.
Gov. Hardman said the courage and
■plrlt of the colonists had made Ameri
ca a great Nation and that this spirit
was still carrying on to greater things.
He said Virginians had set an example
of righteousness and courage, and called
attention to the words of Henry Clay,
a Virginian.
“Clay was for the abolition of slav
ery long before Lincoln," Gov. Hard
man said. “When told that this would
defeat him he said:
“ ‘I had rather be right than Presi
dent.’ ”
The Georgia governor praised Vir
ginia for the great men she had con
tributed to the Nation and added:
“And Harry Flood Byrd should fol
low Woodrow Wilson as Virginia's next
contribution to the United States.”

“Lost Cablegram”
Os War Incident
I Shown Not Lost'
Herrick Message Wilson
Failed to Recall Acted on j
by U. S., Biographer Says ;
By the Associated Press.
A search of State Department records
has disclosed that the celebrated Her
rick-Bryan “lost cablegram,” referred
to in a recently published Installment of
the biography of Ambassador Herrick,
apparently never was lost at all.
In fact, just 4 hours and 14 minutes ;
after the message reached the State
Department, the American Government
acted upon Herrick’s suggestion.
The "lost cablegram,” in which Am
bassador Herrick in Paris, suggested to
Secretary of State Bryan on. the eve of
the European war that the United j
States “make a strong plea for delay j
and moderation.” was reproduced by
Col. T. Bentley Mott, Herrick’s military
aide and biographer, in World’s Work
Magazine. The article quoted Mr. Her
rick as saying that President Wilson
told him later he never had seen this
The records show, however, that the
Herrick message arrived in the State De
partment at 7:30 p.m., July 28, 1914,
and that at 11:44 p.m. the following
message signed “Bryan,” was dispatched :
from the White House to Ambassador
Page at London:
“Is there in your opinion any likeli
hood that the good offices of the United
States if offered under article 3 of The
Hague convention wuold be acceptable
or serve any high purpose in the
present crisis?”
This message, the records show, was
enciphered in the White House that
night. Department officials say thct
President Wilson's failure to remember
the Herrick message months later Is
easily understood.
