reer are unnoticed there some items from Shipbuilding on North River are worth recalling. Turner Foster, as he was commonly called in his boyhood home, having acquired his trade in Medford and thetuate and built four vessels in partnership with Joseph Clapp under the firm name of Clapp & Foster. . . . [Having] reached his twenty-fifth year [he] returned to the Sprague & James yard as foremwent to singing school in Pembroke. At that time Mr. Rogers was courting a Miss Standish, and Mr. Foster was obliged to wait for him to go to her home and do his courting, as Mr. Rogers had the team ark. We have no proof of the identity of the writer but the lines are not inconsistent with Mr. Foster's jovial disposition. From the same source we find what Mr. Usher failed to mention, that jovial disposition. From the same source we find what Mr. Usher failed to mention, that while serving Medford in 1884 Captain Foster was the oldest man in the Legislature—the Dean of the House.
