Placing her hand on the cushion, her foot in the hand
of her husband, Gayly, with joyous laugh, Priscilla mounted her pal

ford in the forest, Pleased with the image that passed, like a dream of
love from its bosom, Tremulous-floating in air, o’er the depths of the

There at the foot of Captain's Hill he lived for the rest of his life. He left six children who have numerous descendants. The tall shaft erected on Captain's Hill to his memory is a prominent object in the landscape for miles around.
There is a fitting monument erected to the Pilgrims at Plym. outh.
