A DOCUMENTARY HISTORY. 845 

Called to this Station by your Will I shall endeavour to per- 
form the Duties incumbent on me according to the best of my 
Abilities. Good Order in the transaction of business is so 
Evidently necessary, that I shall expect your assistance in pre- 
serving it on all occasions. As our Aim is to improve in Friend- 
ship and general Information every Member should strive to 
do something for the benefit of the whole as well as for his own 
Improvement. But the pursuit of Knowledge is in some respect 
much like many other pursuits in Life and he who makes 
the greatest Exertion will generally progress fastest. Although 
from our situation in Life we can hardly hope soon to arrive at 
great Eminence in the Improvement of the mind ; yet should no 
one be Discouraged on that Account. Let us consider that 
between the most learned and the most unlearned there are A 
great many Intermediate stations that may be filled with Honour 
and Credit to ourselves, and perhaps with Advantage to the 
Community in which we live. Nor should any Member think 
himself Deficient in point of genius or natural Abilities, A 
portion of which is given to every Man; And the great difference 
that is seen amongst Men arises much more from what they 
Acquire by their own Industry and Application than from any- 
thing that is Born with them. 

If A Man has good common Sense (and most of Men do have 
it) there is no doubt that he is capable of Improving to such a 
degree as to Cut A good figure in the world. 

Dr. Franklin is an Instance in point, and it is both Pleasant 
and Instructive to trace his rise and progress through life. From 
the most humble beginning he rose to the highest Honours of the 
state; And all in Consequence of his own Industry. Let us not 
despair of following his Example. 

The Question was then read for A Discussion, Which is the 
most Advantage to the Farmer to keep Ewes or Cows? 

After some calculations where made and offered on the sub- 
ject it was unanimously carried in favour of Cows. 

The Question next read for Discussion: Which bears the 
greatest Character A great States-Man or A great General? 

After A long Debate it was Decided as follows. 

In favour of the General, 6. In favour of the States Man. 4>

By the Compiler. 

The following is copied from the notes of one of the debaters, 
(a bachelor) on the question: From which do we derive the most 
advantage, the conversation of men or women? 
Mr. President: 

It is with pleasure I rise to express my sentiments on this 
question. To support that sex so long held as inferior to ours, 
by them who are unwilling or incapable of participating in the 
mild benign pleasures of Female Society. 

Where let me ask is this boasted superior claimed by man. 
Is it in intellectual or moral excellance. No. I defy my op- 



878 A DOCUMENTARY HISTORY. 

ponents to point it out, on the contrary I shall take upon me as 
the firm advocate of the fair sex, to establish that in this partic- 
ular, they are far superior to man. 

That the moral man is more indebted to the influence of 
female society for those virtues for which he is so much re- 
spected by society, and to which he is indebted for his happiness. 

Is it in his pugilistic strength or athlecticity, let them not be 
named in comparison with female accomplishments, or let us 
turn our eyes to the Esquimaux, South Sea Islands, or the frozen 
region of Lapland, and we shall then see the women who under- 
take to perform all the labors of the field as much above us 
in this particular, as we imagine ourselves superior to our 
women. 

Is it in the military or political line. I must confess that in 
general men have been superior in the art of human slaughter 
and procuring human misery and degradation, but even to this 
position a Semiramis, Baodeica, Queen Elizabeth, The Empress 
Catharine II and the maid of Orleans, Joan DeArc, form direct 
and explicit exceptions; when then I again ask is this boasted 
superiority to be found. I may perhaps be answered in general 
terms that it is in knowledge and information. On this head 
permit me to make a few observations, and in the first place I 
ask, does superior knowledge add to the happiness of man. 

This I question. I am convinced can only be answered 
in the negative, when we consider under the three following 
positions. 

I St. It does not add to our happiness because with knowl- 
edge, a knowledge of our wants and imperfections are encreased. 
without the means of satisfying or removing them. 

2d. That there is no satisfaction to be received from the 
persuit of knowledge. A person who sets out to learn every- 
thing, will find that the further he proceeds the greater will his 
disappointment be. he can only learn his ignorance of things 
of which he before had no idea. 

3d. that it damps his present enjoyment by the knowledge 
of these things which may destroy it. 

Pleasures are always damped by a knowledge of the various 
.accidents which momently hang over, ready to destroy it. not 



A DOCUMENTARY HISTORY. 879' 

perceived by the ignorant who enjoy the present good without 
the fear arising from the imagination of a future evil. 

Tn parts superior, what advantage lies, 
Tell (for you can) what is it to be wise. 
T 'is but to know, how little can be known, 
To see all others faults and feel our own. 
Condemn'd in business or in arts to drudge 
Without a second and without a judge. 
Truth would you teach to save a sinking land, 
All fear, none aid you, and few understand. 
Painful, pre eminence yourself to view, 
Above life's weakness and its comforts too. 

Virtue alone is happiness below. The only point where human 
bliss stands still, a conscious rectitude of intention in all our 
actions, that preserves; a still and quiet conscience, will never 
fail to secure our serenity and repose. And where is the con- 
versation that will be most conducive to this to be obtained, 
among men or women, the later unquestionably. 

Woman says the poet is Heavens last best gift to man. 

Th'o nature spread round him her primeval bloom, amidst 
the fragrance and serenity of Eden; Th'o the charms of earth 
and heaven, with the novelty of existence, conspired to en- 
trance his pleasures; yet amid all this profusion of delights, 
something seemed wanting. A langour still hung round his 
senses and "Man the hermits sigh'd till woman smiled." 

That smile alone could animate his seclusion could fill his 
eye with ecstacy; thrill his bosom with transport; that smile 
alone could harmonise the music of the groves and spread a 
complacency over the face of nature. 

Thus has providence in the very event of Creation pronounced 
the Society of Women essential to the happiness of man, and 
she who in the abodes of innocence was destined only to propi- 
tiate the enjoyments has become the allotted companion of 
vicissitude. 

At a meeting on Saturday October the 2nd, 181 3,

HISTORY OF AN ACCOUNT BOOK. 

In 1752 a School Teacher began keeping his accounts in it. 
He entered on the debit side the charges for teaching the children. 
Heading the page with the name of the parent. The teaching 
appears to have been in the vicinity of The Half Hollow Hills 
and Huntington, as these names are entered after the parents 
name. We can determine in a measure the character of the 
peoples' occupation by the articles that were sold to the teacher. 
Money was very scarce in those times and the teacher was 
obliged to trade out his bill. If he taught for a farmer, he 
bought grain, for a shoemaker he bought shoes or had mending 
done.

were to be found, in keeping his diary. There was no regu- 
larity in his making the entries as the different dates were 
scattered all through, down close to the binding; up the date 
columns and in the dollar column and over the head lines. 

Frederick Rowe, Adrian's grandson, now seems to have become 
the possible holder. He was a good penman and he illustrated 
the work with pen and ink sketches of Indians, bears, horses 
and also ships. One page devoted to ships was a marvel of 
penmanship. Page after page the human face was pictured 
with just about three or four marks of the pen. 

Its next owner was Elbert McQueen, who was the great grand- 
son of the 3d Adrian Hegeman. Elbert added nothing but good 
care and from his sisters family, the compiler was allowed the 
pleasure of making a copy. The 3d Adrian had a brother 
Petrus who succeeded to the farm and he added a number of 
pages to the original book and continued the diary after the 
death of his father. 

During the time of Petrus a cider mill was built on the place 
(see Diary) about 1797 and up to 1820 was very generally pat- 
ronized by the farmers, some fifty names appearing on the 
account of the cider mill. This crude record appears in the 
book : 

"The oners of the Cider Mill concluded at a meeting 13 May 
1 81 7 that it where proper for the hole of them to carry in the 
account of Cider made to the mill, to Mr. Hegeman, and each 
pay for making." 

The farmers brought the apples to the mill and made the 
cider and paid 3 pence per bbl to the mill owner. Aron Van 
Nostrand had a general supervision and a statement of receipts 
shows there was due him when the above resolution took effect 
"Due Aron on his part 17s 4d. " 

SCHOOLS &c. 

Religion and instruction went hand in hand among the Dutch. 
The Lords Prayer, Creed, Decalogue, morning and evening 
prayer, grace before and after meals. 



A DOCUMENTARY HISTORY. 897 



The schoolmaster took the lead in setting and singing the 
psalm & Hymns and read the Commandments at the morning 
worship and the Apostles creed in the afternoon. These were 
all prepared in the Dutch language and continued so to be until 
about 1790. 

It was not until after 1776 that the school house appeared 
to have place. Then they were located in some God forsaken 
place and as an old writer says, where beans and buckwheat 
would not grow. 

The school master was poorly paid and one of them remarked 
" 'Tis little they pays me and little I teaches 'em." "He 
boarded around" and continued to do so until as late as 1850. 

The early school house was a very plain structure. Those of 
this people were a simple box like building covered with shingles 
and unpainted. 

Inside a small platform at one end, the desk was one continu- 
ous one around and fastened to the side of the room. 

The seats were long wood benches. All the scholars sat with 
their backs toward the centre of the room. 

The one in mind had a square cast iron stove which was put in 
a box of sand to prevent the floor from catching fire. 

Goose quill pens were the only kind known, and the master 
was or had to be an artist in penmaking. 

These are two of the copy book headings of Catherine Luyster's 
paper Aug. 7th 1809. 

"Riches serve a wise man and rule a fool." 

"Young men go to death but death goes to men." 

This Catherine was born in 1797 and on July 4th, 1879, she 
writes a letter to her sister Phebe the wife of Adrian Luister a 
portion of which is copied as follows: 

"Sometimes this hot weather I feel so weak and feeble I can 
hardly get around. I sit in my own room most of the time. I hear 
so little about what they are saying I may as well be alone as 
not. 

"Sometimes I think about old John Robins where we went 
to school. He went with his hand behind him talking all the 
time to himself, so I do the same thing sometimes. I went with 
James L. Hoogland two weeks ago to hear Rev. N. E. Smith

preach. I could hear every word he spoke. His winding up 
was so good, it was like manna to the Soul." 

Printed Circular Issued by George Field. 

To the Inhabitants of Cedar Swamp &c: 

Before I leave a neighborhood where I have met with so 
little to render it in any way agreeable, I think proper in my 
own justification, and as a caution to all who may succeed me, 
to state to you the unhandsome manner in which I have been 
dealt with. I sought nothing from your generosity. I asked 
no favor of you — but I expected justice, but your prejudices 
were stronger than your justice and I can only protest against 
such partial & uneqmtable treatment and leave it upon record 
that others more liberal may judge between us, or that Public 
opinion may shame you in future from such unjust prejudices. 

I was engaged to teach school at Cedar Swamp for six months 
with the expectation of continuing twelve, unless there were 
any just grounds of complaint. I brought with me a most ex- 
ceptional testimonial from my last school in every way satis- 
factory, backed by the most flattering testimonials from the 
places where I had lived in England from a child, vouched by a 
Minister & Merchant of high standing in New York; I produced 
specimens of my writing ; twice underwent the ordeal of exami- 
nation before the inspectors, which the District has appointed 
and all perfectly satisfactory, and yet the Inhabitants refuse 
to send their children to the school. The question is asked 
why? Hear the answers. 

Minerva, listen, — Thomas Underbill (a trustee) writes to me 
thus; "I rather thee would not give quiet as long lessons untill 
I see thee." I presume he was afraid his daughter should spell 
as well as himself . The lessons were accordingly abridged. The 
next complaints from that quarter were "Thee must not let the 
children use steel pens. — none of them. Thee must not let the 
Friends' children use compliments to thee." Then came Isaac 
Downing. "If thee lets Samuel use compliments to thee I must 
take him away." Then Edward Frost — "I understand my 
children use compliments to thee, if thee will consent to teach

them to say to thee Friend Field and forbid them to say Sir 
& Mr. and will let them write in the afternoon as well as in the 
morning, and use undressed quills &c I will let them come," in 
addition I received the following "Respected friend G. Field. 
At this time it is attended with some difficulty to pay much 
attention to the Learning of our son Marshall his lessons this 
season of the year therefore will please to omit it for the present 
it is my wish that the attention should be to reding writing & 
spelling, and tables &c they Friend E. L. Frost. " I presume he 
would teach them Spelling and Grammar himself! Next Peter 
Luyster's son had too long sums in addition to do, the poor Child 
could not reckon so high as 70 or 80 he must have shorter sums; 
then Andreas McQueen's boy had too hard a lesson and Jacob 
Willis' little girl must only say her lesson straight on, and her 
brother must not write his Grammar, not perform his task, and 
Wm. Willis' children had better have no lessons just now, and 
they must not learn Grammer, or Geography; Joseph Hegaman's 
children did not know their lessons so they were kept from 
school. Epinetus Nostrand's boy was to do as he liked, and if 
corrected was to run home. I will undertake to teach (If not 
interfered with) reading, writing, spelling, grammar, ciphering, 
geography, &c., at least as well as any District School Teacher 
within a hundred miles of Cedar Swamp. Here then is the 
ground of offense and defence. I would not be dicticted to by 
people utterly ignorant of the principles of Education yet having 
the conceit to think themselves qualified to instruct a Teacher 
in his duties. Not one can present anything like a reason for 
dissatisfaction and they know it well, but they shall be remem- 
bered in my orisons "Father forgive them; for they know not 
what they do. " To those who have done their duty they have 
my thanks, they need no more, the consciousness of doing right 
is itself a blessing. I shall bear you in remembrance a thousand 
miles to westward. 

Farewell, George Field 

Sometime Teacher at Cedar Swamp, L. I. October 20th, 1838 

The first school house in Cedar Swamp stood near the great 
oak on the farm afterwards owned by Peter Luyster and now

owned by Townsend Bailey. It was next located in the lane 
between Peter Luyster's corner and Aaron Van Nostrand. This 
building was sold to Gideon Frost and moved to his farm and 
converted into a "tenant house." It is yet standing. 

The third one was built about 1850 on its present site. 

It was in the first one where the meetings of the Debating 
Society were held and where the letter issued by Teacher George 
Field was inspired. 

No record of the attendance has been found, but a general 
idea as to the names of the children may be gained in Field's 
letter.
