Aaron John Miller, a physician and surgeon in Revolutionary War, m. Esther
Burr; d. at Ludlow, November 4, 1838. AVas a member of State Legislature. The
following quotation from Palmer Journal illustrates the man: — " The first physi-
cian in Ludlow was Dr. Aaron John Miller. He was a very tidy sort of man, dis-
tinguished for wearing the highest-priced black broadcloth he could find, and always
eating molasses instead of butter on his bread, drinking clear tea and a very
little old New England, never any water. lie was a rapid talker, made his fever
powders of camphor-gum and loaf-sugar, and was never known to hurt his patients
with his medicines. He usually walked on his visits to patients, always accom-
panied by his little yellow dog. He was intolerant of others' opinions, and empha-
sized his own with frequent thrusts of his cane." The following acrostic, written
by him, was found among the papers of his son, the late Gordon B. Miller : —
" Great chief, Columbia venerates thy name,
Europe with awe proclaims thy deathless fame ;
On Asia's plains, where priests adore the sun,
Eajahs and nabobs own great Washington ;
Grim Alric's sons, who war eternal wage,
Earth's savage nations all revere our sage.

186 APPENDIX.

Wliere Pliiladelphia graces yonder plains,
Adorned witli laurel our loved hero reitins ;
Serene lie guides the helm of every State;
His skill in war and politics complete.
Illustrious statesman ! thou in virtue's cause
Now deign'st to sit. the guardian of our laws ;
Graced with the lovely olive branch of peace,
Thy praise, O Washington, shall never cease !
On thee this western world have turned their eyes,
« Ne'er to revert them till thou mount the skies."

From a piece of his entitled " Summer Evening Song of Connecticut Kiver," are
culled the following stanzas : —

" Flow on, loved Connecticut, majestic and slow,
And mingle thy waters with ocean below ;
The god of the sea with his brine-dripping bride
Exulting beholds thee still swelling his tide.

" The sun has gone down and the star of the west
Is spreading delighted his beams on thy breast.
While meek Lima, adorned with aspect serene,
To grace with her graces the beautiful scene.

" I was born near thy marge in the year 'forty-nine.
And love thee, still love thee and call thee divine ;
Not Ganges, nor Avon, nor Egypt's famed Nile,
Could ever so sweetly my cares all beguile."

His " Epitaph on Little Bute," a favorite dog of his, is of a different character: —

" Hard was the fate of little Bute ;
With hungry wolves he did dispute ;
Amid the strife of battle din
deceived a grip beneath the chin.

"Adieu my brother of the dust!

Those savage whelps are doubly cursed ;
With horrid shriek and doleful yell
I hear them howling now in Hell.'*

quently moved to Constantine. St. Joseiih C<)uiity, Mich., where he became a merchant, town

resentative to the legislature in 1853 and 1854:. and in 1S5G he was elected Judge of Probate
and served four years. In 1860, by invitation of Senator Chandler, he took the place of clerk
of the United States Senate Committee on Commerce, and during every session since he lias

health he returned to Washington at the beginning of the session, and was at his duties daily.
In fifteen minutes after entering the Capitol, on the morning of tlie 3d, he was found lifeless.

Senator Chandler says of him : He was one of the purest and truest men I have ever met

Every one has heard of his story about the pins, which he offered for sale from his
store with the assurance that the pin-maUer was dead and there was no further
chance to buy. Taking up a pair of spectacles once at the Town-house to try them,
lie averred he could see a hawk on Wilbraham mountain. Nor would he listen to
one word of disparagement of Ludlow. Some one remarking concerning the pov-
erty of her soil, he declared that a traveler once lost his horse near the Center, and
finding him in a field of corn, was obliged to clear a passage through the stalks
with an axe. He once told the wondering auditors that he drove his horse at the
time of a shower so fast that he himself kept ahead of the rain, while his dog swam
just behind the wagon for a long distance.

IN MEMORIAM. 193

CC. (See pages 90, 140.)

On the occasion of the death of Capt. Hubbard the following lines
•were penned bj Hon. G. M. Hsk of Palmer : —

CAPT, HEXRY A. HUBBARD.*

Comes there a mournful message,

On wings of lightning sped,
Thrilling the ear witii sadness,

Whispering, " He is dead \"

Brief is the touching stor}',

How at his country's call,
Went he forth in his armor,

To conquer or to fall.

Bravely his comrades leading, —
. On to the strife they go.
Bearing the nation's standard
To the soil of the foe.

Over the trackless ocean,

Rounding the stormy capes,
Where the hurricane dashes

The sea in mountain shapes

Hearing the distant thunder,

Seeing the murky smoke.
Knows he the strife of battle

Rages at Roanoke 1

Turns on his fevered pillow,

Starts with commanding word ;
Calls for his faithful comrades.

Asks for his trusty sword.

" Onward all! to the struggle !
Charge ! the foe is near !
Mount to his frowning ramparts!
Plant our standard there ! "

Wandering thus in fancy.

He leads his comrades on ;
Crushing the foe before him.

Until the field is won.

Hushed is the din of battle.
Hushed is the cannon's roar ;

•Died on shipboard, in Pamlico Sound, February 12, 1862, the fourth day after the battle at
Boauoke Island.

194 APPENDIX.

And sleeps the young Commamler, —
Sleeps to awake no more.

Homeward they gentl}' bear him,

Over the foamy track, —
Anxiously hearts are waiting,

Waiting the welcome back.

Sad, oh sad, is the welcome,

That greets the soldier's bier;
Voices are hushed in sorrow —

Rapidly falls the tear.

Solemn the muffled drum-heat,

Slow is the measured tread ;
Bearing the youthful captain,

To his home with the dead.

riark ! 'tis the parting volley,

Firing over his grave ! —
The last sad act is finished,

And rests the young and brave.

" Come to the bridal chamber,"
Bind on the weeper's brow
Laurel wreaths of the soldier,
Twined with the willow's bough.

" Green be the turf above him ; "
Peaceful his dreamless sleep ;
Ever in fond remembrance
His treasured meni'ry keep.
