Mr. Madison comes not. May God protect us! Two messengers, covered with
dust, come to bid me fly; but here I mean to wait for him... At this late hour a
wagon has been procured, and I have had it filled with plate and the most
valuable portable articles, belonging to the house. Our kind friend, Mr.
Carroll, has come to hasten my departure, and in a very bad humor with me,
because I insist on waiting until the large picture of General Washington is
secured, and it requires to be unscrewed from the wall. This process was
found too tedious for these perilous moments; I have ordered the frame to be
broken, and the canvas taken out. It is done! and the precious portrait placed
in the hands of two gentlemen of New York, for safe keeping.

the twilight's last gleaming? Whose broad stripes and bright stars thru the
perilous fight, O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming?

night that our flag was still there. Oh, say does that star-spangled banner
yet wave O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
We got a hero!
