Eliphalet Fox was born circa 1644 at Concord, Massachusetts (no record surviving).1 His father's will, 25 Jan 1657/58, leaves his estate in the hands of wife Hannah until my eldest son Eliphalet shall arrive at the age of one and twenty years; at which time Eliphalet shall inherit two-thirds of the estate, the remainder secured to his mother until her death, on condition that he agrees to pay each of his siblings (of whom only Elizabeth is named) £5 each.3

concerted effort on the part of the Daughters of the American Revolution towards providing a strong antidote to the anarchistic teachings which are openly proclaimed in public places and circulated through printed matter.

Mary P. Jenney, Historian, Cincinnati Chapter.


By Post Wheeler.

"Is our flag Haunting?

Or do they bear it low?

And where are all the columns

That \ve watched so?"

"Lad, the flag is drooping;

Look, and you will see.

The minute gun is firing—

What is that to me?"

"Is our flag waving?

Or is it draped with woe?

And where are all the comrades

That we loved so?"

"Lad, the flag is weeping,

The drum is muffled, too.

The minute gun is booming-

What is that to you?"

"Is our flag flying,

And goes it toward the foe?

And where are all the brave boys

That we cheered so?"

Lad, the flag is flying!

'Twill fly forever thus!

The minute gun is silent—

What is that to us?"

" All merit comes

From daring the unequal:

All glory comes from daring to begin.

Fame loves the state

That, reckless of the sequel.

Fights long and well, though it may lose or win.

" With eyes to the front all.

And with guns horizontal.

Stood our sires."

"Their every battlefield is holy ground

Which breathes of nations saved, not worlds tm 'one.
