members in attendance. Friday night was decided upon as the regular meeting night of the teachers in September, 1881. And in 1884 the first teachers' sociable, as they are now known, was held at the house of John F. Ayer. The pastor, Rev. C. A. Skinner, entertained the next year, and Mr. and Mrs. John F. Nickerson the following year. Since that time the gatherings have been held in the vestry, although on several regular meeting nights the teachers were pleasantly entertained by Miss Mary Clark, who conducted the infant class successfully for so many years. The school met with an irreparable loss when this good woman died two years ago. Three generations of Sunday School scholars had grown up under her guidance, and her influence is still felt in the world, in a manifold degree, through the many young men and women who to-day remember her kind and helpful words and her infinite love for child life. The most notable event of late years was the fortieth anniversary of the es

tent, but, on hastening to find his former love, ascertained that she was the wife of another. He took the child Myra, placed her under the care of a friend, and had her most liberally educated.-- Zulime lived for a long time after that, at- tained the age of 78 years, and died at New Orleans but a few years since. Clark, whose business talent was proverbial, amassed an immense fortune in Louisiana, Missouri, Kentucky and Maryland, which he bequeathed by will, in 1813, to his mother, Mary Clark, naming Beverly Chew and Richard Relf, bankers of New Orleans, as executors. Charges have been preferred against the executors of bad faith and mismanagement, but however that may be, Myra — then Mrs. Whitney--having discovered at maturity that her mother had been the wife of the deceased millionaire, with an impulse of honorable affection for which she cannot be too highly praised, determined to assert her right, as the legitimate child and consequent heiress to the entire property.
and ball at Richmond, with Jeff. Davis and Beauregard, assisted by many of the Southern girls as waiters. Dear George, I await in anxious for your return, that our bargain may be closed; as for living single, I am tired of it. Mother is very willing for the match; for she says if you live President Lincoln will give all the soldiers a farm and negroes to work it, for that is just what we want; for neither of us have got much, and therefore you are not to disappoint me, and if you want Mary Clark — which I understand you asked her to have you — I hope you will be taken prisoner and kept there forever. I am thinking of you all the time and dreaming at night; but dreams do go by contraries. Sometimes I dream of being at fishing frolics, but, alas! awake disappointed — though in hope it will not always be so. "Disappointment sinks the heart of mankind." "But a renewal of hope given consolation." The above transposition is taken from one of your letters that you wrote<
