.rrr Halm A Larse Doubt
' llisturlral Feat area-of Hal
lowed laeldeat.
c..r IVnJumln of New Yoik. pulilisher
Ti e Collector, has In li s possession u
I. Iter h believes ' proves conclu-
vely that Paul Revere never made tin
midnight ride attributed to him by Ixng
f. How and tradition.
The' document is a letter fro'n John
li.incock to Elbridge Gerry, dated Uex
Ington. April IS, 1775. at 9 o'cbck. This
was Ute night before the m.-morabla bat
tle and three hours before Paul Revere,
according to IjQngfclluw, "cross-Hl ' the
bridge into Medford tewn." The message
lear Sir: I am much obliged for your
notice. Il is sld the o!icers are gne
lui.g the Coticurd road, and I 'will send
word thither. 1 am full with you that we
oi iiht to be aertous, and 1 hope de
cision will be etfactual. I intend doing
myself the pleaaura if beli.g with vu li
n orrow. My. rejects to toe committee. I
am your real frieud, JOHN 1IAMh K
Mr. Itenjamin says that if ll.'n.Mck of
II. s committee ot safety, knew at 9 o'clock
11 at the troo)is had gone along the Con
cord r. ad and hoped they would be "se
rious," that lrf-xinsjton and Concord were
fully aroused lo the danger of tile coming
of Hiitlsii troops, and that there would
be no need for Paul Revere to send
Through the night his cry of alarm
To eveiy Middlesex village and farm.
The guarded expressions in the note, M.
l'.enjanitn says, are due to the troublous
limes, when Hancock might expect to
have his in. el seized and did not want to
have his correspondence betray more In
formation than was absolutely necessary.
His pcsitlon Is that this letter proves thai
by S o'clock th committee of safety was
well acquainted with the liritish plans
and had sent troops to Concord to b.i
ready. Therefore if the patriots were fully
prepared al o'clock, why make the mid
lilgnt r'lle to carry news which they had
uiready had for some lime?
A ((uettloa of Time.
The evidence .f ihe Hancock letter to
Gerry has been known, for it was pub
lished in lies in a rare "Ufe of Gerry,"
but tho dalo with the 'H o'clock" was
omitted, so that printed with others It
caused nd comment. In the origlnay copy
tho date is there In Hancock's writing.
Iaul Revere waa never famous until the
lAjngfellow poem appeared. Since then
historians, remembering that the stone
tower, which the poet's hero of "The
rtkeleto.i In Armour" had built for his
lady turned out t be the eld round mill
'which Rent-diet Arnold's grandfather had
erected, have been looking raluer askaju-e
at Paul, particularly a xingfellow pointed
him. Still historians are agreed that Paul
Revcro a.tuully did clis. and did some
riding, although not as Longfellow made
him do it.
After the learned professors had declared
their distrust of poetic history, they did
manage to find a plain prose version of
Paul Revere among the old manuscripts
or the Massachusetts Historical society
papers. It proved to be a letter written by
Paul Revere in 17!W to their secretary. Dr.
Relnap. Right then and thero Paul, as
Iongfellow wrote him, and Paul, as lie
wrote himself, began to disagree.
The first trouble was over the lantern to
be hung In the old North church for a sig
nal light. Even now historians are not
decided whether the tablet hung In Rostnn
commerorating the spot is placed In the
right church, or whether It was Robert
Newman or John Pulling who "climbed
the tower of the old North church by tho
wooden stairs with stealthy tread to the
belfry chamber overhead." Paul Just calls
him a friend, and so does Longfellow.
Having established the fact that there
was a church somewhere and a lantern
trouble begin to arise. Paul Revere him
self wrote that the signal was Invented by
him for the benefit of aome American of
ficers. "'Colonel Conant and others," In
Charlestown, to let them know when the
British crossed, fearing that any messenger
from Boston might le taken by the Hrltlsh.
A Borrowed Horse.
When Dr. Warren asked him to go to
Ixx':ngton to warn Hancock and Adams
there, he told 1.1s friend to raise the lan
tern as a signal to Conant in tae lie (Riv
vere) couldn't leave Boston. Having or
dered the lantern to be placed, Revere
quietly rowed across to Charleston and
borruwed Deacon LarMii's bursa. In Ids
letter Paul assures Dr. Belnap that the
horse, though belonging to the deacon, was
a good one. The historians do not raise
any great objection to the Revere docu
ment so fur. but it Inconsiderately de
stroys the first six stanias of Longfel
low's poem.
While Deacon Larkin's horse was being
addled. Revere met Richard Devens of
the committee of safety, who told him
that ten liritish officers iiad been seen
going up Hie lx-xiugton r ad at sundown
This supports Mr. Benjamin's argument
that the Gerry letter shows that the Com
mittee of Safety knew the danger three
hours before Paul Revere took to nigh?
Continuing his account. Revere says he
saw two British officers, and after leading
one into a clay pit, he turned Into the
Medford road to avoid the other, and
"alarmed almost every house to Lexing
ton." There he found Hancock and Adams
at the Rev. Mr. Clarke's, and there "we
refreshed ourselves'' and half an hour
later set out for Concord to protect the
stores. This prose account knocks out
Longfellow's eighth and eleventh stanias.
Worse, however, is to come. Paul Revero
himself doesn't profess to have reached
Concord. When half way there, the Brit
ish officers captured him, tk from him
Deacon Iirkin's good horse, and mounted
him on the worn-out. nag of a British
seigcant. They also addressed language to
him. which Ingfeow certainly never
would have Invited children to "listen and
hear."' Paul was forced to accompany the
British back to I-extngt un, as far as the
meeting house, whtrs he dodged tiiem, and
went to the tavern to help move the trunks
So the historians any stanri twelve
couldn't be true, granted any amount of
poetic license. He certainly never did
"come to the bridge In Concord town" as
the clock struck ! or at any other early
morning hour.
Having completely taken the wind from
Longfellow's sails, the prose letter ends
the midnight ride, and goes Into great de
tail on a subject not connected with the
However, lh historians arc not alto
gether satisfied with the Revere letter, for
he wrote it in liMi. twenty-four years after
the rid and, conceding his honesty, his
memory might easily have been bad. Con
sidering the many doubts which the learned
have come to have of Paul Revere' ride.
Mr. Benjamin bllcve that the evidence
c intaine 1 In the H'incock-Gerry letter
shows that It simply never happened at all,

And while I am suggesting topics, sayi
"Interpreter" in the American Magaiine,
there is another department of Mr. Rocke
feller's great business which originated
with him and which I wish he would be
explicit about, and that is the spy system.
Certainly Mr. Rockefeller will not venture
to attribute this peculiar activity to the
"over-real" of some employe "anxious for
his own or Ids company's advancement"
the general explanation he gives In the
first chapter of his reminiscences to the
criticisms made in tils conoern. I at
least know that far from being a rase of
overzeal the spying on competitors lies
been a well-organised and most efficiently
managed part of his business organization
for many years. I once had In my hands
a great bundle of the anonymous "repirts"
and "forms" which had been used and dis
carded by th bureau which looks after
tliis kind of thlng-a division of that great
bookkeeping system to which I see Mr.
Rockefeller attributes so much of the suc
cess of the Standard Oil company. The
bundle came to me In a curious wwy. A
boy employed by the Standard OH cosn
pany to burn uch papers regularly In tip:
furnace, noticed frequently on them aa he
stuffed them into the fire the name of 'a
man hi had once been kind to him. Tlio
man was an Independent dealer lu . olj.
The biy studied tho papers. He auw from
them how this man's shipments were re
ported from the freight offices by railroad
employe secretly to the tftandnrd. HV
found a telegram ordering agents to secure
a countermand of the orders saw retiorLs
that the ordering had been successfully
discharged. So often did he see this that
he became alarmed for Ids friend and
finally, unable to endure his secret, lie
gathered up comph te ots of the documents
and carried them at night to the man's
house. It was from there they came
to me. The paper" now are buried In the
mountain-high pile of testimony the gov
ernment is taking in its suit against the
