They were, in the order of coming into the scheme, Mrs. Gilman, Mrs. Greenough, Miss Longfellow, Miss Horsford, Mrs. Cooke, Mrs. Agassiz, and Mrs. Gurney. This bare statement of the first steps in the organization gives no intimation of the long consideration that had been devoted to the subject by Mr. and Mrs. Gilman, of the hesitation with whichman, 5 Phillips Place.
