wmakers, and Charles Reeves, of West Cambridge, filecutter, in 1832, with buildings thereon standing, raceway through Blackington's land, &c. The lane by the saw-factory was laid out as a town way in 1840. Abner Stearns's first business was that of wool-carding, to which he added a gristmill, afterward used for grinding yellow ochre for paint. In 1810 or 1811, he erected a large building on the site since Schouler's, in which he had a fulling-mill and a spinning machine of 72 spindles, in 1812. The yarn spun was taken elsewhere and made into broadcloth. The peace of 1815 broke up the business, owing to the excessive importation of British cloths. Stearns left West Cambridge in 1816, and was of Bedford in 1817. Abner Stearns, of Billerica, gentleman, sold to James Schouler, of Lynn, calico-printer, James Schouler, born in Scotland 13 July, 1786, died Westchester, N.

feet square; and the, average price of the cards is 7 dollars per dozen pairs. The origin of this business was the invention of an ingenious machine for making cotton and wool cards by Amos Whittemore, one of the above company, by which was realized (for the time) great wealth. See sketch in the Genealogical Register of this work, under Amos Whittemore. This card factory was a most important affair in building up the town of West Cambridge. By removal of the business to New York, about 1812, a depressing effect on the people here was experienced, and in the words of a valued correspondent, it was a terribly dull place for several years. About 1827, Gershom and Henry Whittemore, sons of the inventor, commenced business in West Cambridge, having purchased machines of their uncle Samuel Whittemore, of New York. Their factory was destroyed by fire in 1862. 11 1800 In 180Q the Second Parish in Cambridge contained 4,345 acres, 118 rods.—Holmes, quoted by Paige. There were
recommended Capt. William S. Brooks, who was appointed, and thus became first Postmaster of the town. The postmasters of the town have been: William S. Brooks, 1812-1814; Amos Whittemore, 1818-1827; Henry Whittemore, 1831-1834; Isaac Shattuck, Jr., 1835-1839; John Fowle, 1840-1846; Edwin R. Prescott, 1847-1862; Abel R. Proctorinbridge requested Mr. Knox, the pilot, to publish a statement of what he saw after leaving the Chesapeake, but it gave no satisfaction. No action in the war of 1812 occasioned greater mortification to Americans, or more exultation in England. Capt. Broke was welcomed home with great distinction, and knighted.

A procession, under the marshalship of Addison Gage, Esq., was formed, comprising mounted police, bands, the National Lancers, civil officers of the town and state, the legislature, masonic organizations, soldiers of 1812 and the late war, children of the public schools, representation of trades, citizens in carriages, and a cavalcade, in all over a mile and a half in length. It passed through the principal streets, and a collation was afterward partaken of by the school children in a large tent on the common near the Unitarian Church, and by the invited guests in a mammoth tent on the grounds of J. R. Bailey, Esq., on Pleasant Street. Dinner was prepared by J. B. Smith, and speeches were made by Governor Bul
