Going from reading Nathan Hale’s handwriting to Benjamin Tallmadge’s is just so relieving. It’s like doing algebra and then having to do addition.

Hey hi hello amrev tumblr! If you’ve heard of Halemadge, you may have heard of That Gay Poem ™ that Nathan wrote to Ben. I transcripted it, so here it is! There are some words that I couldn’t make out, but if you notice a mistake, feel free to reply to the post!

Friend Tallmadge,
Although a first attempt prov’d vain,
I’m still resolv’d my end t’ obtain.
My temper’s such I rare give out,
In what I temp’d for one bad bout.
Here this the case, you’d never see
Lines, form’d to feel and rhyme from me.
But being sadly mortified
At thoughts of laying it aside;
Reviv’d a little by your letter,
With hopes of speeding better,
At length I venture forth once more,
But fearing soon to run ashore.
My thoughts had once convey’d you home
In safety to your wonted dome;
But g lad by went a second time,
Attended by your muse and rhyme.
That you are there, the single proof
You bring, to me, is quite enough.
But here  I think you’re wrong, to blame,
Your gen’rous muse, and call her lame.
For when arriv’d no mark was found,
Of weakness, lameness, sprain or wound.
Page 2
As soon as stop’d, away she trips
(And that without or spurs or whips)
With me. in charge, (a grievous load!)
Along the way she lately trode.
In all, she gave me fears or pains,
Unless, at times, to hold the reins.
Now judge, unless intirely sound,
If she could away bear me such around.
It’s certain then your muse is heal’d,
Or else, came around from Weathersfeild.
Whene’er with friends I correspond.
seek for
I love to give them food of which they’re fond.
If, (illegible) if be of one and kind.
And when I can (illegible) south (illegible) kind,
Be it if my best is of meaner kind,
strive
I seek to dress it to their mind.
For this I leave my wonted course,
With you, and seek for aid from verse.

I’m glad to hear you talk so favourably of Schoolmatters, for not only in the Company of Schoolmasters but in almost all Company, I find the word School, or my school is very apt to croud into conversation.. Sometimes, like Adam of old, I am for laying the blame at other people’s doors.. For almost every person entertains such a terrible Idea of the Confinement of a School, as if the schoolhouse were indeed worse than a prison, that they are frequently asking some Question or other about it, How can you endure it? do you like it? I would not for the Nothing. many more phrases I could repeat, but you have heard them all often I dare say & when one is set a going, you know it is very easy to keep on, especially if we have the wind and tide with us……
Elihu Marvin to Nathan Hale, May 24 1774
I CANNOT ELIHU STRAIGHT UP CALLING MY BOY NATHAN A NERD LMAO THEN TRYING TO JUSTIFY HIMSELF SAYING THE BLAME FALLS TO OTHER PEOPLE

New edition dropping!
If you've been on my blog for a while, you may know my love of history and reading. This culminates perfectly together in one of my favorite childhood series: Nathan Hale's Hazardous Tales. Basically, Nathan Hale (the spy) says his famous words, a giant book shows up, eats him (and spits him out), and now he can tell the future. And so he tells the future to the Hangman and the Provost, stalling his execution. It's a fun series! I love it to death! Anyways, the author's coming out with a Bigger and Badder edition this October! The new cover for One Dead Spy has me so excited!
Tumblr media
Look at it! Look at the Provost and Hangman and Nate! The Provost is snooty as ever, the Hangman has a huge smile on his face, and look at how serious my man Nathan is! Look at him!!!!
Anyways, what does it mean? The Bigger and Badder edition has some extra notes from the author, and 15 pages more of shenanigans with Nathan, Provost and Hangman. I saw that he's doing it up to the Alamo, but I hope he makes the Bigger and Badder editions for all of his books! Especially Big Bad Ironclad, it's always been my favorite in the series.

There are many songs I refuse to shut up about, but the Nathan Hale Trilogy with the Finale sped up to 1.5 takes the cake in terms of frequency of recommendations
