WASHINGTON COUNTY POST, Salem, NY June 1841

HARRISON'S TOMB

A friend of the editor's of the Lebanon Star, writes them from North Bend,IN.that he is engaged in preparing the mound or burial place for the reception of the body of President HARRISON, He describes it as "a very elevated spot,a short distance west of the dwelling house and opposite the mouth of the tunnel to the Whitewater Canal." this sppot is conspicous from the Ohio River and is perhaps the best that could have been chosen.A vault is being built upon it,and it is to be enclosed with a plain though neat and substantial fence-harmonizing in this paticular,the writer appropiately says" with the life and character of a man who is to repose within its pale."Trees enough of the original growth have been left upon the mound to shade it and give it at once an appearance of great beauty.Such it should have,for it will be a pilgrim spot in this country, whither thousands will repair yearly in respect of the memoryof the great-good departed. Troy Daily Whig
