afraid that if the property is divided

JUST A PLAIN WOMAN AT THAT.
Yet alias Anne Cunningham Saved
flaunt Vernon to the Nation.
The story of how Mount Vernon was
saved to the Nation by a woman was
entertainingly told to the Boston
Daughters of the American Revolu
tion by Miss Alice Longfellow recently.
Miss Longfellow's story was about
Miss Anne Cunningham , a gentlewom
an of old Virginia , who , when passing
up the Potomac river one day in 1S53
and hearing the steamer bell toll when
passing the grave of Washington , be
came possessed with the desire to re
store it. The place was then occupied
by a great-grand-nephew of the first
president , John Augustine Washing
ton. It was in a state of decay , and
the generous hospitality of the owner ,
who treated every passing stranger as
a guest , made the expenditure of money
tor repairs utterly impossible. When
Miss Cunningham ventured to tell him
of her plans he was filled with horror
that women should do that which
should so emphasize the degeneracy
of men. But the determined woman
sent out urgent appeals. Her first call
was to the women of the south , and
on July 12 , 1851 , the first meeting
was held. Edward Everett was one of
the first to offer his services , and as
a result of his lectures ? 6S,000 was con
tributed to the fund : Northern people
withdrew when they learned the prop
erty was to be turned over to Virginia ,
but on March 17 , 1S5G , the Ladies'
Mount Vernon Association was formed.
A certain congressman had vowed
he would defeat the association , but at
a critical time Mr. Washington showed
his loyalty , and just at the time when
Miss Cunningham was ready to die
from over-anxiety and discouragement
a definite conclusion was reached. After -
ter that she lay in a stupor for three
weeks. In addition to the actual price
of the plantation , $300,000 had to be
raised for repairs , and when matters
were progressing finely the Civil war
broke out and confusion was the re
sult. Mount Vernon was neutral
ground throughout the bitter struggle.
When the strife was ended Miss Cun
ningham went there to live , received
the aid of Sumner in gettting an in
demnity from the government , and
went on with the noble work she had
