OK,here we go sports fans,
In this time of troubles I wanted to build a nice quite pastoral scene. We have a Moravian Missionary toiling in the communal fields in Bethlehem,Pennsylvania circa 1750. The Industrious folk of Czech and Saxon stock,have right away cleared land and built a self sufficient community on the banks of the Lehigh River. This served as a base of operations for the Missionaries to go out to bring the Word to the Native Americans in the surrounds. They were very successful and did not use coercion. Large groups of converted Lenni Lanape tribesfolk settled in villages nearby of their own volition.
A young Maedle from the young folks' group has brought water for a refreshing break that man and horse are gratefully enjoying. In Bethlehem the young ladies wore red ribbons. Upon reaching maturity they wore pink. When married blue and when widowed,they changed to white.
Any lady unfortunate to become widowed was given free room and board in the purpose built house in town.
All people in town were assigned a job and no one received wages in return for their work but were given lodging and clothing and food.
The town was begun in 1741 and soon boasted the first symphony orchestra in the colonies plus the first public water works dating from the 1760s.
Hope this small treatise didn't bore!
and the view of all from above.
Thanks for looking and on behalf of the band I hope we passed the audition.
