Congressman Levy Writes
Convention as to His Views
for Monticello.
Daughters of the Confederacy, hold
ing tho final elona of their conven
tion at the New Wlllarrl today, re
flected all but two of their old officer,
theao two declining to aervH again. Soon
utcr the election the convention ap
plauded a statement with reference to
the right of the South to have seceded,
and a few minutes after that many
of the delegates were weeping nt the
words of Corporal Tanner, tho Union
veteran, who was similarly effective nt
ne Arlington monument unveiling Tues
day. This afternoon the convention prob
ably will hear read a letter from Con
gressman Jefferson Levy relative, to
Monticello and Mrs. Martin Littleton's
efforts to have the National Govern
ment buy It. The letter which has been
cnt to tho convention Is caustic. It
Mates that If Mrs. Littleton's "cam
paign were founded on a real nffctlon
and reverence for the memory of Jef
ferson, I could look upon It with dif
ferent eyes, and, however unpleasant It
might be to see an effort to wrest from
me this property. It would be some con
solation that I could respect the mo
tives of those behind tho movement."
Wants Only Fair Play.
"Cut this campaign has been attended
by numberless and wholl unneccasaiy
misstatements about Monticello, and
about my uncle. Commodore I.evj
those about m self, I suppose, I must
"I have said that I do not expect
gratitude, but I think that every Am
erican will feel that I uni entitled to
fair play. I have demonstrated In the
last thirty-three years that I have ap
preciated fully the Importance of imin
erl maintaining this historic place
Tho public will not be surprised tt.m I
urn unwilling to turn It over to a self
appointed director, whoc Interest In
the matter has been of the briefest, es
pecially In view of Hit character of
the campaign, of abuse of my family,
and of tho misstatements regarding the
care I have be8towd upon the estate
It Is proposed to nuke Monticello
it public place like Mt. Vernon. At
Monticello, the atmosphere of the honiu
of Jefferson Is maintained, and the
feeling of reverence for JefTerson Is
fostered. At Mt. Vernon, an admission
is charged and the home atmosphere
has been lost.
Owner Is Patriotic.
"The public may be assured that I
have not fallfd to gUv careful and
patriotic thought to tho cart of Mon
ticello In tho years that follow after
I can r,o longer see to It In person. If
my provisions for Its proper mainten
ance prove to be Inadequate, that. 1
submit, will bo time enough to consid
er the question of the Government tak
ing It."
In an Intrvlew In a morning news
paper Mrs. F. A. Walke, a Norfolk
(Va.) Daughter, Is made to sav that
Congressman Levy had personally as
sured her that the home of Jefferson
"would be given us." Mrs. Walku
stated this afternoon that she hod no
pledge, from Mr. Levy, und had been
erroneously quoted. It Is gossiped that
