IHE TORY DK.N.



WHEN YOUTH IS DONE. 263

As a rule however Tories were not so sensitive; they entered into the
management of public affairs by voting and holding office, after such privi-
leges had been reluctantly given them. In 1783 the town of New Haven
voted to instruct their representatives " to use their influence with the next
General Assembly in an especial manner, to prevent the return of these mis-
creants who have deserted their country's cause and joined the enemies of this
and the United States of America during the late contest." But one year after
this, Dr. Stiles wrote in his diary, " This day, town meeting voted to readmit
the Tories." When the city of New Haven was organized in 1784 there were
eight Tories in the common council and about one-third of all the voters in New
Haven were Tories. This proportion of Tories may be above the average, but
throughout the state, after peace. Patriots and Tories generally dwelt together
in harmony, in striking contrast to the Revolutionary times.

Prejudice, passion and social contagion are responsible for much that calm
deliberation would not have prompted. We can all pity the Tory, but the pur-
pose of this paper is Tory history with neither condemnation nor approval ;
still I must say that whatever unwarranted abuses the Tory may have received,
those high in authority, the General Assembly, Governor and Council of Safety,
\^ere always ready to forgive and "ever willing to exercise lenity and mercy —
as far as may be consisent with justice and publick safety." They had large
and noble hearts, full of " tenderness and compassion," and thus our state was
much more indulgent and charitable to the Tories, than most of our sister
states.



WHEN YOUTH IS DONE.



BY ELIZABETH ALDEN CURTIS.



We cannot hope the waning days will pass
And leave no trace upon the plumed lea,
Time's foot fall down the years, though light and free.

Still browns the sward, and sears the ripened grass.

So gazing deeply in life's misted glass

Young charms that, wraith-like, for the nonce we see,

Fade swiftly, as the early sunsets flee
When night comes down to wrap the still morass.

But there be tender twilights for our years
When we may turn us to abiding cheers.

Then, sweet my love, reach down your hand to me,
That standing pulse to pulse, and twain in one.

We fix our perfect joy in memory,
To bless and warm our hearts when youth is done.
