Editorial note. In 1883 a third edition of Mr. Warren's Life on the Nile in a Dahabeaeh was published. A copy of this, with illustrations, has just come into the Society's library by courtesy of his nephew, Henry W. Hart. In 1884 Mr. Warren published his autobiography (forty-five pages), with the genealogies of affiliated families (Bennett, Schouler, Russel, Wilkins and others), the former containing interesting side-lights on Medford history. On page 217, Brooks' History of Medford, is a view of his boyhood home when in Medford.
