GOSSIP ABOUT G}O. WASHINGTON.
Hie Heine and' Habits in Philadelphia.
`From contributtop to Yleirlbana,HotOe. by
ttrace <1 eenwond.)
Awhile since, in, looking over a Phila
delphia Directory for 1797, my heart gave
a great bound as I came upon the entry:
"Washington, George,l9o , lllgh street."
To the disgrace of , Philadelphia. , 'that
honse,tecond only in historic interest to
Independence Hall, was many years ago
•But, for a feW charmed hours of - a mid

before my eyes `in his habit as he lived;'.'
and yetshe only magic conjuration was
the clear memory of a gracious old man,
who, in his early childhood, was neigh.'
bor•of Washington, his parents living, I
believe, on Sixth street, near High.
At the house of a friend in Philadel
phia, I was so fortunate as to meet Kr.
Robert E. Gray, a - than"past foursomy
but wonderfully well preserved—looking
much younger than his years—a gentle•
man of the old school in courteousness of
manner, in elegance and neatness of
dress, stately in figure, with a fresh and
handsome countenance. In person and
demeanor, he reminded me strongly, of
Walter Savage Landor, as I saw him in
his eighty first year. •
When I asked this noble relic of the
past for his recollections of Washington,
he said: "Bless you, I little to tell.
I was so very young at the time when I
knew him that I have only childish re
collections, mere trifles, which will
scarcely interest you." On my assuring
hini that these were just the things I
wanted to hear, he talked modestly, and
with much questioning, of the old.days
of Philadelphia, and of the great Presi
dent and his household.
, In his childhood, he said, the place
where we theu were, on Tenth street near
Arch, with the-roar of the great city about
us, was quite in the rural districts. He
remembered going to bathe in the little
pond, near the corner of Sixth and Arch
streets, a secluded an& shaded spot.
High reet, the fashionable avenue, was
only paved as far up as . Ninth, but it was
planted with rows of the Lombardy pop
lar nearly out to the Schuylkill, and was
the favorite Sunday promenade of the
"Washington's house," said Mr. Gray.,
"was thought a very fine mansion. It
was what was called 'a house and a halt'
—that is, the hall was not in the middle,
but had two windows at the right, and one
window at the left. It was two stories
and a half high, with dormer windows.
It was rented for the President, of Robert
Morris, but originally belonged to Gallo
way, the Tory." •
\\•• Was'- Washington the stately and
formal personage he has been repre
"Yes be was a very dignified "gentle
man, with the , most elegant manners—
very nice in his dress, careful and punct
ual. I suppose he would be thought a
little stiff now,a days."
"Did you ever hear him laugh heartily?"
"Why, no, I thinkl never did." ,
"Was he alwayssgrave. as you remem
ber him, or did he-smile now and then ?"
"Why, bless von, yes, he always smiled
on children! lie was particularly popu
lar with small boys: When he went In
state to Independence Hall,‘ln his cream
colored chariot, drawn by six ,P,ays, and
with postilions and oiat-riders, and when
he set out for and returned front \ Mount
Vernon, we boys were on hand; he;pould
always count us in, to. Luna and wave
our hats for him, and he used to torch '
his hat to us as politely as though we hid
been so many veteran soldiers on parade."
"Were you ever in his house, as 'a
- "Oh ! yes; after his _great dinners he
used to tell the steward to let in the littie
fellows and we, the boys of the immed,
ate nei:thborhood, who were never far oft
on such occasions, crowded about the
table and made quick work with•tthe re.;
nuts and raisins." " '
t, "Washingto n had a bad habit of ptice
ing up`and down the largalront room on
the first floor, in the early'twilight„ . with
bis bands behind him; awl one evening a
little boy, who had never seen him, in
attempting to climb up to an open win.
dow to look in upon him, fell and hurt
himself. Washington heard him cry,'

be was very softehearted, at"leut toward

told the h.., that he was the President,
A ....an for all that. Then he had the
_giant give the little fellow some nuts
and cakes and dismissed him."
• I asked Mr. Gray if he- remembered
the Custis children.
"Yes," he said; "I often saw them at
the windows, or driving out with Mrs-
Washington in her English coach."
They did not seem to have left a very
vivid and human impression on his mem
ory. With their fine clothes and com
pany manners. with their attendants,
tutors, dancing and music masters, they
seemed very strange, inaccessible, and
unneviable little personages to all the
happy, free•and-easy children of the
"Do you remember Washington's
levees, and Mrs. Washington's drawing
rooms?" I asked.
"Yes, I remember hearing about them.
All the evening parties were over by nine
o'clock, and the President's house was
dark and silent by., ten. They were,great
affairs, but I was 'too young to know

lateen .1 was veryfound of - visiting his
Stables, early in the morninvat the hour
when, he always went to inspect them. I
'liked, to see him at that work, for he
seemed to enjoy .it himself. Like Presi
,dent Grant, he was a great lover of horses.
I can almost think I see him now, come
striding out of his house, across the yard
to the stables, booted and spurred, but
bare•headed and In his shirt•sleeves."
"Washington in his shirt-sleeves!".
"Yes, madam; but he was always
Washington. The grooms stood asice,
silent and respectful, while he examined
every stall and manger, and regularly
went Over every horse—l mean, he passed
over a portion of its coat his large white
hand, always looking to see if it was
Boiled, or if any loose hairs had come off
on it. If so, the groom was reprimanded
and ordered to do his work over. G4n.
erally, however, Washington would say:
'Very well. Now, John, get pit Pres
cott and Jackson.' his white chargers.

"Did he ride at so early an hoar?" .
"Yes. Generally between five and
six of a pleasant morning he was off; and
he almost - always rode up to Point.no-
Point, on the Delaware, a little way above
Richmond. He was a fine horseman,
and, being a long-bodied man, looked
grandly, on horseback. It was a sight
worth getting up early to see."
Here came a pause, and then I pro
pounded the momentous old question:
"Did. Washington ever swear?"
"Well; as for that, I cannot speak from
my own observation. Washington had
great self-control—he was a moral man—
's religions man, for those times, and 'did
not swear Upon . small occasions, and, I
should say, never before children; but,
from what I have heard my father and old
soldiers say, I think he must have blazed
away considerably in times of great ex
citement. lie was very tender of his fa
vorite horse, and at one time I remember
to have heard a young aid or secretary
ask leaie to ride one of his white charg
ers, on the way to Mount Vernon, and
the General allowed Erato, but cau tioned
him not,to rein up the horse too tightly.
After a while Washington saw he was
worrying the animal, and cautioned him
again; bat the fellow kept on pulling and
jerking at the bit until the creature be
came almost unmanageable.
"Then Washington broke upon him,
like a whole battery, ordered him to dis
mount, and swore tremendously. I re
member, too, that I once heard an army
officer tell about his cursing some,General
who disobeyed him in battle."
"Lee, at.Monaiionth ? "
"Yes, I believe so. Anyhow, my in
foment said it, was the greatest sort of
swearing, yet wasn't so awful as Wash
ington's face at the time. He said, I re
member: never saw the devil before.'
"These things were told of him, but
not told against him. It was the fashion
of those times. However, I never heard
a rough word from him, or saw his face
when it was not peaceful and pleasant."
