The record of Medford ships shows that he built his last ships in 1834 and 1835, one in each year, and that after 1835 the building at the Magoun ship-yard was by others. It would appear that the mansi1835 the building at the Magoun ship-yard was by others. It would appear that the mansion-house was commenced at about the time of his retirement, about 1835.

Facing page 357 in Brooks' History of Medford (1855) is a steel engraving by F. T. Stuart, showing the house and stable, with (presumably) the owner in his carriage driving out across the sidewalk. Two pieces of statuary, and large vases, adorn the ample grounds. An iron fence surmounts the granite wall in front. A. C. Rawson was the delineator, and the print also bears the name of O. R. Wilkinson, Medford's daguerreanhant of Boston and Medford and Mrs. Revd. Dr. Wm. Adams of New York. The Mansion House of their father built by him about 1835 is already advertised for sale.

It bears this legend, Junction of River, Canal and Rail-road in Medford, 1835. This locality is one specific point referred to in a recent address before the Historical Society, entitled The Story of An Ancient Cow-Pasture. Request was then and there made for its publication. As the speaker compiled his story largely from the Register's pages, the reader is referred to them, and the present article will concern but the border of the ancient cow-pasture, which is destined to become the scene of busy industry as well as of modern pleasure taking.

There were ninety-six of them, twenty-eight being marked as officers,—and the list is a notable one, being headed by the Governor of the Commonwealth, John Brooks, and the minister of the town, David Osgood, D. D. This list is worthy of preservation, and was furnished by the late Francis A. Wait, who says in a later communication: A few years ago I saw a pamphlet gotten up about 1835, and signed by men in Medford who were alarmed at the increase of drunkenness in the town. Certainly, Medford was wet (to borrow the modern term) a century ago, but probably not more so than other towns not engaged in the business of distillation. Now, that after a century of agitation and effort, not only Medford but the entire country by national legislation and state ratification is dry, it is of interest to know something of the Medford of 1819 and its conditions— physical, education
