    Page 711 years that the Pilgrim wrote down in a "Diary" some events thatoccurred while on th e voyage, and after persistent inquisition the authorof this work has become satisfied of th e truthfulness of the story. Inthe first place there must be found some reason for the existe nce of thetradition itself. No explanation of the widely disseminated report hasbeen given an d we fail to discover any motive that some descendant of thePilgrim could have had for suc h a fabricati on and forgery. Inquiry bycorrespondence of Mrs. Kahn, who wrote the poem on th e "Diary of PilgrimSoule," shows that she had never seen the fragment and used the "poet'slic ense" in the statements she made; but she borrowed the thoughts expressed from lingering stor ies extensively circulated. By tracing thetradition, the author was led to communicate wit h a Soule family in Ohiooriginally from Massachusetts: and while the information received a t thattime has been overlaid or lost the author remembers quite distinctly thesubstance of th e letters received. From what was then gathered it wasevident that George Soule left with hi s son John with whom he passed hislast days, some important private papers and t hese, with h is "library,"were distributed among his surviving children. Among these papers, so thestory g oes, there was the fragment of a Diary or Journal in which thisscholarly young man wrote dow n such events as he thought worth preserving and had kept this record of the voyage as a sacr ed document for hisposterity. By much use and handling this small manuscript-booklet hadbecom e reduced to only a few leaves. It seems that this relic fell intothe hands of Josiah Soule w ho removed early to Youngstown, Ohio, and asthe correspondence between the author and a membe r of that family isremembered, this old manusc??ipt was claimed by a maiden lady in thatfamil y who treasured it with jealous care; seldom perm itting any personto even see it or examin e it. It seems that by the reason of curiosity,excited from a knowledge of the existence of t his interesting souvenir ofthe Mayflower voyage, the owner secreted it and absolutely refuse d evento p ermit any person to see it; and it was suggested that any who wishedto behold th e treasure must patiently wait till it passed into otherhands. Many years have elapsed sinc e the correspondence was carried on,and owing to the failing memor y of one who has passed, b y three years,the four-score years allotted to some men, he will decline to assume anyfurthe r responsibility on this subject.
    Pilgrim Soule's DiaryWritten On the Mayflower . By Mrs. Ida (Soule) Kuhn.

    It lies upon the library desk, A diary brown and old; The leathern backis torn away, The pag es blurred with mould; But still a sentence hereand there Is left by time to show The hope s and fears of Pilgrim SouleWho kept it long ago. [Page 712] In what a stiff, old-fashione d handHis solemn thoughts were penned; And how the Mayflower must haverolled; For half th e letters blend. And here he entered "Grievoussick," And here "A child was born," And late r on--" A sailor diedThis holy Sabbath morn." He mentions too a mistress Anne He left acros sthe sea; In some old garden hedged with box And haunted by the bee;And if you hold the ta ttered leaf Between you and the light You stillcan see the Pilgrim's tear That blistere d "land in sight." Instately tomb and simple mound The Pilgrim Fathers sleep-- Forgetti ngin their final rest The perils of the deep. The Mayflower with heroaken ribs Is nothin g but a name-- But, Pilgrim Soule, your little bookOutlived your sturdy frame.

    We shall now devote our attention briefly to a kindred subject with thatof the lost "Diary. " There appears good reason for believing that GeorgeSoule, the student and scholar, brough t with him a library from hisEnglish home. It will be noticed that there was an item in the I nventoryof his estate denominated "Books." Passing on to the Will and Inventoryof John Soule , eldest son of the Pilgrim, we shall find an item stated asa "libery" (library) which eviden tly was that of the "booke" beforementioned. Still pursuing our search, we shall find in th e settlement ofthe estate of George Soule 2d, the Pilgrim's son, an item of "Books;"probabl y a part, at least, of the original library brought across theAtlan tic. Shall we look a litt le farther into this subject? Where couldthese books have come from unless brought over by Ge orge Soule? Bookswere very rare in the New England settlements long after the originalPlantat ion at Plymouth and seldom , if ever, owned by any exceptclergyment and magistrates. There we re no publishing houses or book martsin the wilderness of the "New World," as this country wa s early called.If George Soule of Plymouth owned a collection of books they
    NOTE.--The recent discovery of the marriage and family record of thedaughter of George Soule , Susanna by name, stimulates the reasonable hopethat other papers containing family record s may yet be retrieved fromsome old attic or rubbish- bin.
    Page 713 were certainly purchased before he embarked on his oceanvoyage; and we must be perm itted to take a moment's retrospect and fancythis young student dallying along the Strand loo king for books. With whatcarefulness must he have s clected them. Probably with limited mean s hewould make choice of such works as were standard at the time; and we canimagine his feeli ngs of pride as, with his precious parcel under his arm,he wended his way toward the rendezvo us. "Once a student always astudent!" And with fancy free shall we not find this adventuresom e youngman, when the Mayflower did not roll too badly, spending an hourpleasantly employed wh ile poring over his books? But what of the shortwinter days a nd the long winter evenings whi le living at Plymouth andDuxbury! What more entertaining diversion from his toils when procur ingthe supply for family existence than to spend an hour gaining knowledgethrough the mediu m of literature! Let t he reader draw a picture of theevening scene and supply the figures fo r the family circle. For thisthere need be no especial elasticity of the imagination, for suc hdomestic groups were seen daily at Plymouth.
    We believe George Soule was born as early as 1590 and that he was not inhis minority when h e signed the "Immortal Compact."
    Soon after his settlement at Plymouth he was granted a small tract ofland for a house-lot an d was virtually invested with the privileges andresponsibilities of yeomanry by which he wa s taxed for the support of thesimple government of th e colony; and when the "Jacob" came ove r bringinga cargo of cattle, George Soule was assigned "one of the four blackheifers called t he smooth-horned heifer" and two "shee goats." Theserecords indicate a family supply and we a ssume to sta te that he marriedMary Beckett as early as 1622. And what about this young wif e of "PilgrimSoule?" Shall we for a moment believe that this young woman left hernative lan d and faced a boisterous sea to find a home in the wildernesswithou t the prompting of some u nusual impulse or cause? Such anassumption would be preposterous in the extreme. Under the mo st favorablecircumstances such an adventure would requireheroic courage and aresolute will. T here remains no ground for reasonable doubt that she hadknown young George Soule before his l eaving his English home and that theirresistible magnet that drew her to New England was th e warm heart ofthe man who became her husband. Such an experience as she and th eBrewster gir ls entered upon was not undertaken without much thought andsome trepidation. But the romanc e of the conditions and occasion lendrays of sunshine to the otherwise gloomy circumstances a nd we feel aspirit of gladness and cong ratulation as we fancy them cosily shelteredin thei r humble home.
    And then the children multiplied around their hearthstone. Were they asource of joy or of so rrow? No glamour of the imagination or weaving offabrics with a golden overshoot can eliminat e the fact that this worthyhusband and wife shared in the sorrows incident to the circumstanc es thatseem to be necessary for the discipline and the purifying of humannature; that they dr ank from the domestic chalice the bitter with thesweet, while the wayward conduct of their ch ildren co st them many a pangof heavy hearts. However, their respectability in after life wa s a verysoothing and redeeming feature that banished the memories of earlier days.
    Page 714 While associating our thoughts about George Soule and his homeand family in New Eng land, we must not neglect the view through "back-sights" of the possible scenes about his Eng lish residence. We have nowarrant for assuming that he "was to the manor born," for he wasevi dently a city child. His first reputed ancestor was John Sole (Soule),sometime Mayor of Worce ster, and his near kindred dwelt within the radiusof a few miles of Eckington in the same shi re. He mu st have spentseveral of the years of his minority at college--if he was a graduate. While his name has not been found in any college list of students, weknow by such catalogue s that two of the sons of Robert Sole were collegemen; William and Miles. The parting with hi s parents, if surviving, andhis brothers and sisters, must have cost him and them heavy heart s andmisgivings. The ties of Nature then, as now, were caused to vibrate withtender emotion s when parting with be loved kindred. Whatever the home orits environments left behind by th e Pilgrim, he looked upon it for thelast time. His emancipation was final and permanent; hi s face steadfastlyset toward the Occident and thither he went.
    After the settlement of George Soule in New England, his ability andscholarship were recogni zed by his fellow-citizens and he was called tofill some very important positions in the tow n and Colony. His home andlot were near Eel River at first, but he had subsequent grants at " PowderPoint" and at "Ye watering place." He sold these estates to Hicks andSouthworth; and i n 1645 with his old friend Miles Standish and some otherspecial friends, he crossed the bay a nd founded a new home in the town ofDuxbury, locating himself at "Powder Point." There he res ided theremainder of his life--38 years. Here he served as one of the earliestselectmen and c ivil magistrates and was frequently re- elected to fillthe of fice. He was also the Represent ative to the General Court, orLegislature of Plymouth Colony in 1642; 1645; 1646; 1650; 1651 ; 1653; and1654. He had for colleagues during his official career such distinguishedmen as Al den, Soughworth, Peab ody and Starr. When Bridgewater was setoff from Duxbury he was one of t he original proprietors of that town, butsoon disposed of his property there and afterwards b ecame one of theearliest purchasers of Dartmouth and Middleboro. The form er estatesdescende d to his sons George and Nathaniel; the latter properties hebequeathed to his daughters Patie nce and Elizabeth. He thus became anoriginal proprietor in the founding of four new settlemen ts, an evidenceof his enterprise and thrift, which were his most distinguished traits ofchara cter.
    During the troubles with the Pequot Indians (1637) he was a volunteerand five years afterwar ds, when the plot of Miantonomah was discovered,George Soule was appointed on the committee " for offensive and defensiveWarr," indicating his wi llingness to fight as well as pray for th eprosperity of the settlement in the wilderness.
    George Soule was not a litigious man, for during his long life heappeared in court but onc e as party to an action, and then it was toconvince the jury of the righteousness of his case ; and he obtained averdict. This was in January, 1637 , when he sued and was sued byNathanie l Thomas to obtain the control of some cattle. On March 1,1658-9, Goodwife Mary Soule, his co nsort, was indicted for being absentfrom church; but that was not an uncommon transaction i n court and signifies nothing out of moral rectitude.
    Page 715 Without enumerating the minor official positions filled byGeorge Soule, it may be s ufficient to allude to the one important duty towhich he was called: as a collaborator with G overnor Prince, Winslow andConstant Southworth, in the revision of the Colonial Laws. This po sitionwas one of great responsibility and required the exercise of superiorability. Few wer e the men in the settlement at that time who werepossessed with the scholarship and judgmen t equivalent to such a task;and the result was evidence of his erudition and application.
    In the history of Duxbury, Windsor says of George Soule: "Though not aman distinguished in t he government of the colony, yet he was ofessential service in his town, holding positions t o which he would nothave been called had he not been a man of integrity and probity." Another historical writer has stated, "Among the early settlers of this town weresome of the ablest m en in the colony, including John Alden, WilliamBrewster, Thomas Prince and George Soule." I n an article on the "StandishHouse" published in 1876, Harper's Monthly, it was stated, "Int o thishouse on Captain's Hill, Miles Standish removed after his secondmarriage, and here he d rew around him a devoted class of friends, amongthem being Elde r Brewster, John Alden and Ge orge Soule."
    George Soule and his wife, Mary Beckett, had at least eight children,all born before 1650. I n that year it was stated, "George Sowle is stillliving and hath 8 children." The order of th eir births is not certainlyknown; some writers assi gning John as being the oldest son, whil e othersmake Zachariah the first born. The author believes there were more thanfour sons in t his family. Mary Soule died in 1677, and his death occurredin 1680, being "very aged," as th e records of the Colony prove. See hiswill.
    George Soule outlived nearly all of the passengers of the Mayflower, hisold friend, John Ald en, surviving him more than seven years. The onlymemorial of him known to exist is a gourd-sh ell once belonging to him,preserved in the Hall at Plymouth.

    Children of George Soule, the Pilgrim.
    3. George Soule (2), a son of George (1) and Mary (Beckett) Soule, wasborn in Plymouth Colon y, Mass., about 1624, and with his brotherNathaniel had part of the lands in Dartmouth upon w hich he settled. Hiswife's name was Deborah but her full maiden name has not been assured. He received a grant of land in 1682, "being one of ye fyrst- born children."From the reading o f the preamble of his will and the language employed inconnection with his children we estima te him as a very pious man.Possibly there had been premonitions or warnings that suggested ca utionand restraint from the "higher powers." George Soule second was a "searover" like his br other Nathaniel and went with him on many fishingvoyages. Whi le absent from home Giles Slocu m seems to have presumed upontheir indefensible situation and entered upon their lands by tre spass.The brothers went into court for adjustment of the case and received averdict of

    He made a will in March, 1697, and therein especially commends his wifeand children to divin e protection. This George Soule had a good estateand would have been called "fore-handed" b y his townsmen. He was calledto fill some minor munic ipal positions, but seems to have bee n a verypeaceable and worthy citizen. There was a large family of sons anddaughters. His wido w also made a will and this will follow with otherdocuments subjoined. The exact time of thei r deaths is no t known; butsomewhere down by the ocean's banks they were laid down, where the irrequiem has been chanted for two-and-a-quarter centuries. Peaceful betheir rest.
