rrels of apples, besides great varieties of pears, peaches, plums, quinces, and the common lesser fruits. To Medford belongs the introduction of the celebrated Baldwin apple. The first tree, producing this delicious fruit, grew on the side hill, within two rods of the former Woburn line, and about ten rods east of the present r their name was shortened to Peckers; and, during my youth, they were seldom called by any other name. How they came by their present appellative is this. Young Baldwin, of Woburn, afterwards a colonel, and father of Loami, was an intimate friend of young Thompson (afterwards Count Rumford); and, as lovers of science, they asked Sudden and great surprise was the consequence.
