As the representative of this Stale in the ML Ver non Ladles' Association of the Tnion it Is my duty to present again to the people of Ohio the claim which this nobis enterprise has upon them. Meat of them are familiar witn the lovely spot, nestled among trees on the banks of the Potomac, where George Washington lived and died, and where, at bis own request, bis ashes repose. This spot many of the noble women of our land felt to be so sacred that tbey determined to purchase It, te be held as a national national Inheritance. For tbla purpose the ML Vernon Ladles' Associa tion of the Cnlon was chartered In 1&56, and a 1 ce lt egent appointed for each State, with a Regent at their bead. These ladles then proceeded to raise gnu. 000, which was ths sum required for the purchase of ML Vernon, and by tbe year 1861 It was accomplished. accomplished. Since then the Association has been obliged to expend In repairs all the money they could raise to prevent lu falling Into Irreparable decay, as very little had been done to it since the deatb of Mia. Washington. In making these repairs great care has been taken to preserve tne Integrity of the building as left by Washington. In order to maintain ML Vernon properly we re-mire re-mire re-mire an endowment fund of Siu.OOO,. the Interest of which will be devoted exclusively to that purpose.
