ill in 1843. Leaving Boston, our first thought turns naturally toward historic Cambridge, where we shall find many old trees. The first of these to pass before our mind's eye is the Washington elm. A monument set at its base bears this inscription, written by Longfellow: Under this tree Washington first took command of the American army, July 3, 1775. This is perhaps the best known of all living American trees, the most honored, and certainly one of our oldest trees. It is said that Washington had a platform built in its branches. One writer on old trees says that in 1850 it still retained its graceful proportions, its great limbs were intact, and it showed few signs of age. From the Washington elm imagination takes a short step to the spreading chestnut tree, dearly loved by Longfellow, and made famous by him in two poems. In the poem of The Village Blacksmith, the most familiar of these, he has endeared to us that homely vocation and exalted the dignity of labor thereby.
