Benson, first attorney general of New York, justice of the state supreme court, and member of both the Continental Congress and the Congress under the Constitution; and George V. Henry as Richard Henry Lee, first senator from Virginia. All of these are descendants of the persons whom they portrayed yesterday.

Chancellor Livingston read the oath, and the general repeated it after him, his left hand on a huge crimson-bound Bible and his right hand upraised. “Long live George Washington, President of the United States," loudly intoned the chancellor at the conclusion of the ceremony. The crowd roared, “Hurray for George.” The trumpets rang out, and the drums rolled.

The 160-year-old coach, a treasured possesson of the Franklin Institute of Philadelphia, will be on exhibition throughout the fair in Washington Hall.
