Description

Excerpt from The Jarvis Family: Or the Descendants of the First Settlers of the Name in Massachusetts and Long Island, and Those Who Have More Recently Settled in Other Parts of the United States and British America Both in this country and Europe, the name of Jarvis has been enrolled in almost all the learned professions and pursuits in life. It has given dignity to the bench and bar; it has graced the pro fessions of medicine and surgery; it has adorned the pulpit and the stage; it has entwined its garlands of poetry with music and painting, and it has thundered its deeds of daring over the ocean wave, and among the distant islands of the sea. And here we may be permitted to speak briefly of some of those who, in the various walks of life, have made the name illustrious. Earl st. Vincent, Sir John Jervis, the renowned British admiral, was a noble type of the hero and English sailor. In judgment pro found, with a stern will 'and inflexible integrity, he was the favorite of his government. His battles were models of naval tactics, and when won were complete. His good name, fame, and unspotted character gave him a place in Westminster Abbey. The following anecdote in regard to the United States and Commodore Bainbridge is quite interesting. It is from Allison's History of Europe. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
