Excerpt from Samuel Lewis: Ohio's Militant Educator and Reformer
This was the tribute of Samuel vvood worth to his home adjoining the little village. The ﬂight of years has changed the place, but its rural beauty remains. The subject of this sketch, like the poet, when far from this peaceful spot in the western wilderness beyond the moun tains, fondly reverted to the cot of hisfather and the blessed associations that bound him to the dear old home.
The days that he spent at Scituate he was wont to declare the happiest of his life. There, at the age of fourteen years, he bade farewell to grandparents and aunts with whom he had spent many j oy ful days when his father, a sturdy sea captain, was sailing his ship over the bounding main. This, in the realm of his memory, was ever to him the home of his childhood, but his eyes first opened to the light in Falmouth, Massachusetts. March I7, 1799. I love to dwell on, my early days spent at Scituate, said he. Falmouth has a place in my recollec tions, but when I turn to reminiscences of early days Falmouth is the episode while Scituate is the history.
