In July, 1849

: Miscellaneous.

"The deceased was one of those devoted women who aided to
relieve the horrible sufferings of Washington's army at Valley

Forge--cooking and carrying provisions to them alone, through the depth of

winter, even passing through the outposts of the British army in the

disguise of a market woman. And when Washington was compelled to retreat

before a superior force, she concealed her brother, General Worrell--when

the British set a price on his head--in a cider hogshead in the cellar for

three days, and fed him through the bung-hole; the house being ransacked

four different times by the troops in search of him, without success. She

was above ninety years of age at the time of her death."
