57. on! brothers, on! by Sarah Warner Brooks. Air--Hail to the Chief. On! brothers, on! for the Flag that is peerless! Striped from the rainbow, and starred from the sky. On, with a sturdy step! dauntless and fearless! On, to unfurl it in triumph, or die! Honored in all the lands, Now shall unholy hands Trail it, defiled and despised, in the dust? Down with the “traitor's rag” ! Up with the starry Flag! Death for our Banner! and God for the just! Fiercely at Sumter have thundered their cannon-- Bravely the guns of our hero replied!-- On! for the ashes that slumber at Vernon! On! for the city whose name is our pride! Now let our country's guns Sweep down the bastard sons! Woe for her chivalry's flower in the dust! Down with the “traitor's rag” ! Up with the starry Flag! Death for our Banner! and God for the just! On, with a prayer! this peril before us! On, in the face of death, fearless and proud! Life! with the Flag that our fathers waved over us! Death! with it

t. While perhaps the title of educational antiquary hardly applies to your essayist, it will be assumed and the results of the delving recounted. Fortunately a valuable clew to the situation was found, and through the thoughtfulness of Mrs. Sarah Warner Brooks important, original material, a scrap-book, of Brooks' was found. Without this book, so carefully prepared, this paper must have been based on evidence at second hand and of doubtful authenticity. As it is, we are able to hear Charles Brooks' was found. Without this book, so carefully prepared, this paper must have been based on evidence at second hand and of doubtful authenticity. As it is, we are able to hear Charles Brooks' own words, and to examine cotemporary evidence in support of his statements. When the educational revival had been in progress for twenty-five years, and teachers and educators had appreciated the magnificence of the undertaking, it seemed to them to be well to hold a meeting at which the historical features might be treated. It was to this meeting that Charles Brooks was invited. The record of the meeting is most valuable, for here we find at first hand the stories of those concern
from Sea, in 1908. Many others of his stories have appeared in the Atlantic, the Outlook, and other periodicals. He is a marine artist, familiar with the men and the scenes of the Maine coast. He formed a habit of making a note of the stories he heard from time to time, and offered the records thus formed to his neighbor, William D. Howells, as material for his work. Howells replied to him as did Henry James to George Du Maurier under similar circumstances, Write them yourself. Sarah Warner Brooks was the author of three volumes of poetry—Blanche, published in 1858; St. Christopher, and Other Poems, in 1859; and the Search of Ceres, and Other Poems, in 1900; also a volume of criticism, English Poetry and Poets, in 1890. She wrote two volumes of short stories, My Fire Opal, and Other Tales, 1896, and Poverty Knob in 1900. Alamo Ranch appeared in 1903, and A Garden with House Attached in 1904. Four of these books were written after she was seventy-eight years of age and the las
f land lay opposite on High street. Through these areas, in very recent years, have been built Wolcott and other streets and numerous residences. To this house came, in 1893, the widow of Isaac Austin Brooks (cousin of the historian), Mrs. Sarah Warner Brooks, who spent there the remainder of her life. An account of her may be found in Medford Past and Present, page 45. She was author of A Garden with a House Attached, which may be found in the Public Library. Its first chapter has a graphiautifully tender allusions to the lady of the wheel-chair run through the volume, referring to Miss Lucy Ann, who in her last years thus visited her familiar home scenes. Some years ago the enclosing fence was removed. The gate, however, was swung back, and the lilacs have sprung up before it, as if to forbid its closing. Mrs. Brooks' son Edward recently passed on, and the big mansion may not remain many years. We have thought it well to thus show and mention it ere it shall be no more.
Medford Historical Society Papers, Volume 25., A home-comer's Opinion, 1871. (search)
A home-comer's Opinion, 1871. A former resident of Medford, Caleb Swan, while on a visit to his brother doctor, went to Oak Grove Cemetery. On his return to his home in New York, he attached the following to page 429 of his copy of Brooks' History of Medford and marked the margin against the matter of tree removal:— One of the first things done by the committee was to cut down the grand, noble, old oak tree on an eminence near the grave of Mr. Jonathan Brooks. When I first saw it, June 6, 1866, I stood nearly ten minutes looking at it with admiration: it had noble large branches and was probably two or three centuries old. I enquired the names of the Cemetery Committee and was informed they were Mr. Goldthwaite, Chairman, J. W. Mitchell, Mr. Vinal. They might be called a Goth & Vandal Committee. C. S., 1871. Mr. Swan never lost interest in his boyhood's home, and, on publication, purchased five copies of the history, four of which he gave to friends and relatives le
yman street, and the Washburn and Goodspeed residences built at its corners. Around on Woburn street four houses have taken the location of the big barn, and still others in the rear of these. It was to this newer home of his father that Rev. Charles Brooks returned, after his pastorate at Hingham, to make his home with his sister, Miss Lucy Ann, and to go about his work for normal schools. Here he wrote his History of Medford, and spent his last days. Here also was the home of Sarah Warner Brooks (Mrs. Isaac Austin Brooks), the author of various books, one of which, The Garden with a House Attached, describes the old mansion and its then extensive grounds, now so much transformed. Note in the view the easterly entrance porch, with its two pillars. They were relics of the third meeting-house which (on the site of the present Unitarian church) was taken down in 1839, and according to Mr. Brooks' historical item (p. 494) supported the old meeting-house gallery.
