The Cherry Tree
By: M.L.Weems
When George Washington was about six years old, he was made the wealthy master of
a hatchet of which, like most little boys, he was extremely fond. He went about chopping
everything that came his way.

One day, as he wandered about the


garden amusing himself by hacking his mothers pea-sticks, he found a beautiful, young English cherry
tree, of which his father was most proud. He tried the edge of his hatchet on the trunk of the tree and
barked it so that it died.

Some time after this, his father discovered what had happened to his favorite tree. He came into the
house in great anger, and demanded to know who the mischievous person was who had cut away the bark.
Nobody could tell him anything about it.
Just then George, with his little hatchet, came into the room.
George, said his father, do you know who has killed my beautiful little cherry tree yonder in the
garden? I would not have taken five guineas for it!
This was a hard question to answer, and for a moment George was staggered by it, but quickly
recovering himself he cried: I cannot tell a lie, father, you know I cannot tell a lie! I did cut it with my
little hatchet.

The anger died out of his fathers face, and taking the boy tenderly in his arms, he said:
My son, that you should not be afraid to tell the truth is more to me than a thousand trees! yes, though
they were blossomed with silver and had leaves of the purest gold!
