Its exact age is unknown but it has been handed down through successive generations for over one hundred and fifty years. It was doing business when the Father of his country was flourishing his little hatchet among cherry trees; was an old timer at the surrender of Cornwallis; and a very old clock when Great Britan took her second lesson from "Uncle Sam". The case is some the worse for wear, the crown brackets and part of the base having been removed, but it still stands six feet and two inches high making it too "tall for the shelf." The working parts which are mostly of apple tree, are in excellent running order, and as an accurate time piece it is unexcelled and bids fair to out last several generations more.
