ment, Easter Monday, April 17, Engagement of the Young American Tragedian, Edwin Adams.

We can determine the time of his being here by the dates of the marriage and death of his niece, 1831 and 1845.
On this estate, on the west side of the lawn, is a Scotch laburnum and an English oak planted by Mr. Adams.
He brought them as small cuttings from abro. William Adams. Doctor Adams was spending his vacation at the home of his father-in-law, Thatcher Magoun, the senior ship builder.
He married Susan P. Magoun in 1831, and her sister, Martha B. Magoun, in 1835.
He was an admirer of Webster and a distinguished man himself and was called one of the noted clergymen of New York Cit
