The old bakery in its palmy days was the real thing.
It may not seem so to the observer, whose gauge mark is the Sunshine, or the Thousand Windows, but in the truer comparison of times, means and market, it was a noted, successful business enterprise, a credit to the proprietors and the old historic town in which it flourished.
Mr. Henry Withington (the third) still lives but a few rods away, is hale and hearty, and for twenty-two years has faithfully served his native city as one of the Board of Assessors, is still at his post, doing as faithful, honorable work there as in the old days and old bakery, which is now only a memory. —Moses W.

Mrs. Ingraham's brother, Willis Hall (1733-1812), had a daughter Mary (1772-1853) who married Dr. Luther Stearns, December 20, 1798.
His daughter Elizabeth (1801-1862) married George W. Porter, February 17, 1824.
They were the parents of the late Helen Porter, who died in 1899 at the age of seventy.
While serving as pastor of the Mystic Church in this town Rev. Elias Nason wrote the life of Sir Charles Henry Frankland.
In it he stated that the Agnes Surriage fan came through the Porter family, and that it bore the original owner's name.

Mrs. Ingraham's fan keeps company with Agnes Surriage's fan in a Medford family. —Eliza M. Gill
