That Cherry Tree
Au Editorial by the Society Editor.)
The old cherry tree story ha» changed a lot since It was tlrst told
by M L. Weems, the \irglnia parson, who. In 1780, vstoIo "A Life of
Georgy Washington With Curious Anecdotes Equally Honorable to Him
self and Exemplary to His Young Countrymen."
Thus,, many Delaware generations have pictured the cherry tree as
prone on the ground after George was through using his little hatchet
on it Such was not tho case, however. What young George really did
was "to bark the tree so terribly 1 don't believe the tree over got tho
better of it," according to the reliable Weems.
Then there Is considerable variance as to what his father said to
George and what George said to his father after the ruined tree was
discovered. Weems, father of the story, quota tho very words, thus:
" 'George.' said his father, 'do you know who killed Uiat beautiful
llttio cherry tree yonder in the garden?'
"Looking at his father with the sweet face of youth, brightened with
the inexpressible charm of conquering truth, he bravely cried out;
"'I cannot t il a lie, pa. You know I can't V 11 a He. I did cut it
with my little hatchet.'
Henry Cabot Lodge, m his biography of George Washington, which
WllmlnglODtaa* have read. give, almost a chapter to Weems.
whom he regards as a genial oid lur. Lodge doesn't believe the cherry
tree story at all. He rails the oh rj tree «i or . 'Iiopl.issly ,.nd rid.cu
lou.Iy falae." Olbor.hlatorlana hold the same view, but the cherry tree ■
story still blossoms in Delaware and all Hie other >Ules even Februarv
22—and may It continue go to do to the end of Urn . because, true oV j
false. It Is a good slory which points « moral and makes for truth
telling by American boys and girl,
■ " 'Hun to my arms, you dearest, boy,' cried hl» father In transports.
'Run lo my arms. Glad I am, George, that you killed my tree, for you
have paid mo for it a thousand.old. Such an act of heroism lo my son
Is worth moru than 1.000 fre s, though blossomed with silver and Ihtlr
fruit» of purest gold."'
