An old-time picnic. There is ever a charm in the reading of letters of earlier years, and this is especially true when the sentiments as expressed in the written words leave a pleasing impress of the writer's individuality, as disclosed by criticism and opinions regarding events and personal experiences. Such a charm, we think, attaches to a letter bearing date of Brookline, July 20, 1817, and written by Miss Fanny Searle The first-named died in Brookline, May 3, 1851, and the latter in Newburyport, June 28, 1877. to her sister, Mrs. Margaret Curzon, The first-named died in Brookline, May 3, 1851, and the latter in Newburyport, June 28, 1877. then at Havana, Cuba. In it is a description of an all-day excursion on the Middlesex canal on July 18, 1817. The readers of the Historical Register may be interested in it because of details which occurred in Medford. The picnic party consisted of a large gathering of what was best in the society of the old town of Boston.
