S. bore well its part, Historic knowledge to impart, Upon its chosen work intent. Then later Scott was President. How could events more fitting come, That when our years are twenty-one, Our list of officers we scan, And find for President a Mann. A Mann in name, a man for work, A man who never learned to shirk. Whose tireless work today we praise, While grateful thanks to him we raise. These corporate members' names were filed DeLong, and Wait, and Dame and Wild, Sargent, Loomis, Joyce and Gill, And Eddy, will the number fill.

Hall with the city clerk for safe keeping as the property of the Medford Historical Society, and the interleaved copy of Brooks' History of Medford, belonging to the late Caleb Swan. The former is a collection of at least three hundred papers, comprising deeds, copies of wills, bills, accounts, memoranda, letters of a business or social matter covering a period of more than a hundred years, containing nothing of civic interest, but showing the business life of the Hall family for several generations.
