“But who are the little boys with the silver badges about the size of a half-dollar on their coats, who are running to and fro with letters and papers in their hands? They do not seem to be more than twelve or fifteen years of age. Those are the pages of Congress; they run errands for the congressman; and each receives two dollars and fifty cents a day for his work."—Carpenter, 1898.
