CHAPTER VI
For several weeks Walter and I
his mother were constantly togeth
er discussing Walters father ex
pressing great anxiety for his re
turn believing that he was living
and that only death would finally
separate them
Walter had now been on the
plantation sufficient time to know
all the servants connected with
the premises It was during the
days of slavery and old man Bar
telle was the owner of quite a
number of negroes It was Wal
ters custom to visit the cabins of
evenings Rafter tea and listen to
the old darkies tell of his mother
how good and kind she was to
them They never knew his fath
er but for his mothers sake and
the sake of her sou they wanted
him to return
Each day a boy was sent to the
postoffice returning without a
letter from the absent one Each
disappointment increased the anx
iety of the mother and son and
often they could be seen weeping
as though their hearts would break
While a letter was anxiously ex
pected from Mr Gifford Walter
received regular answers from his
epistles to Aunt Lizzie She
wrote lovingly telling him how
happy she was over the finding of
his mother and ere long she be
lieved his father would tome to
him Walter got much comfort
from Aunt Lizzies letters and
it did his mother great good toI
read them
Walter was now well acquainted
in the neighborhood and had
made quite a number of friends
among the young people at Mid I
way He had been going for the
mail several months One morn
ing in May 1857 he said to his
mother before starting I be
lieve we will hear from father this
day When he reached the post
office he found a letter addressed
to his grandfather mailed at New
Orleans He felt sure that it wasi
from his father and hurried home I
as buickly as possible He told
his mother that he believed he
had the right letter and he walk
ed into his grandfathers room
his mother following The old
gentleman opened the letter and
in an instant he exclaimed Vi
ola 1 your husband Walters fath
er lives and we will soon have
with us The letter read
New ORLEANS May 257
Mr James Bartelle
BartelleMidway
Midway Ky
Dear Sir
By accident I picked up an old
Cincinnati paper this morning
and in glancing over it I saw an
advertisement with your name t 0
it saying I would be gladly re
ceived at your house From the
advertisement I judge that my be
loved wife is living I have trav
ed this country over hoping to find
her a xfinally believing that she
was deaul settled in New Orleans
but not one moment of enjoyment
have I experienced since she dis
appeared from your house a few
marriageIf
If you still desire to see me an
swer at once
onceVery trulyEUGENE
EUGENE GIFFORD
015 5th Street
The reading of the letter brought
much joy to the Bartelle house
hold Viola looked ten years
younger and Walter was so en
thused with the information that
he was to soon see and know his
father that he went over the plan
tation telling the glad tidings to
all the servants v
A letter went by return mail
telling Mr Gifford to come as
speedily as possible that Viola
was living and that her anxiety
could not be expressed Trave
was slower in those days and the
family calculated that it would
likely be two weeks before Eugene
could reach his wifes home In
wa as
detailed to go for Aunt Lizzie e
Viola and Walter desinug that she
f be present when Mr Gifford ar
rived In a few days theold lady
I was driven up to the Bartelle man
sion Walter and his mother were
delighted to see her and for sever
al days they entertained each oth
er with stories of the past and the
early approachof Walters father
Aunt Lizzie speaking to Viola
said I knew from the day you
lauded at my house that there was
no scandal attached to you
a mystery that would come
out right in the end and it is a
source of much joy to me to know
that my predictions have proven
true When I see you and your
husband and Walter united the
anxiety ofmy life will have been
gratified I could then return to
my humbleipme in Adair county
and live out the remainder of my
days in peace and happinessu
knowing that you and yours were
comfortably situated She was
told that she could have a home
at the Bartelle residence the re
mainder of her life if she desired
No said she I have a little
interest back in the hills and
when I see you all united it will
b e my duty to return to my hum
ble home My husband has been
buried for many years on a little
knoll not fur from my house and
when my time comes to go I want
to be laid beside him At this
juncture Walter dashed into the
room saying Grandfather be
iovcs father will reach home this
day All eyes were immediately
turned in the direction of the
big gate hoping to see a buggy
approaching They did not look
but a few minutes until they dis
covered vehicle rapidly advanc
ing Violas heart was in a flutter
The buggy passes through the gate
and the occupant is now coming
hurriedly up the drive Viola and
Walter are outside the house and
re making rapid steps to the
yard enterauce the vehicle stops
a gentleman alights and in an in
taut is in the arms of Viola
They embraced each other time
und again when suddenly Viola
exclaimed Eugene I this is our
son whom you have never seen
Then Walter was taken into his
fathers arms and presently all
three went into the house Mr
and Mrs Bartelle were perfectly
carried away with Mr Giffords
appearance and Aunt Lizzie
fairly shouted with joy
It was indeed a happy meeting
The husband and wife separated
for nearly sixteen years the hus
band not knowing that he was a
father until his sou was introduc
ed to him by his loving wife
meetingn
Eugene related why he left home
He heard that Viola had suddenly
disappeared from her home and
that her uncle Mr Ben Bartelle
tiwas out looking for her This al
most crazed him but when he was
told that Violas uncle had return
ed without any trace of her he
became perfectly desperate and
started on the hunt himself He
traveled over nearly all the States
visited the large cities and after I
an unsuccessful search of several
years settled in New Orleans
believing that Viola was dead He
had written a number of letters
but never received an answer He
was chinking in a largo retail st re
in New Orleans and that it was a
mere accident that he saw the ad
vertisement which brought him
home A gentleman had return
ed a pair of shoes wrapped in an
old newsper and in untieing the
bundle he discoved the notice I
am now here said Mr Gifford t
a happy man with a prom
ise to you Viola and Walter to re
main until separated by death
There is but little more to b e
told Mr Bartelle and wife gave
Viola the farm and a number of
horses and cattle and a large sum
ot money property equal to It in
value was settled upon Jennie
the old people divided time with
>
their two daughters until removed
by death Walter took to medi
cine and graduated from a New
York University and after his
marriage he located in Georgia
successfully practicing his pro
fession Mr St Clair remained
with Mr Gifford and Mr Ben
Bartelle found a home with Mr
Newby in Mississippi Aunti
Lizzie was substantially remain
bed She returned to her Adair
county home and some years ago
was buried beside her husband
about halfway between Columbia
and Old Neatsville People to
this day in passing the burying
place often remark there lies the
remains of Aunt Lizzie Sharp
who in her life time was known
all over this country as a Good
Samaritan
