Of the first board of directors William Fiske served the bank the longest; he resigned in 1851, after twenty-five years of service. The present board consists of Lucius R. Paige, Asa P. Morse, Charles James, Frank H. Jones, and Charles Bullock. Dr. Paige was elected cashier in 1857, and he has served the bank continuously, in different capacities, since that time. Mr. Morse has been connected with the bank since 1860. Mr. Lane served the bank as cashier from its inception, 1826, till March, 1855, when he resigned on account of ill-health.

B. & C. for my household articles, and therefore need the cash to pay for them. This forchases; promising to return it, if practicable, in all this week. They will expect me to fulfil my word. My object in writing to you is to know whether you can borrow that amount for me, so as to give me more time to turn myself. . . . Bro. James is slowly improving in health, but his case is a bad one. He has already taken three courses of the Thomsonian medicine, and will continue to take them until he is cured. I shall write to the Secretary of the Navy, at Washington, to see if I ca

Garrison. wellpleased with the prospect before them. . . . I am gratified to hear that the Board of Managers in Boston are disposed to act in a very liberal and spirited manner, in reference to the National Society. Friend C. informs me that W. M.
