towe's third child, Henry Ellis, was born. It was about this time that the famous reunion of the Beecher family described in Lyman Beecher's Autobiography occurred. Edward made a visit to the East, and when he returned he brought Mary (Mrs. Thomas Perkins) from Hartford with him. William came down from Putnam, Ohio, and George from Batavia, New York, while Catherine, Harriet, Henry, Charles, Isabella, Thomas, and James were already at home. It was the first time they had ever all met toget one to another, each one adding his or her budget of news to the general stock. When the filled sheet reached the last person for whom it was intended, it was finally remailed to its point of departure. Except in the cases of Mrs. Stowe and Mrs. Perkins, the simple address Rev. Mr. Beecher was sufficient to insure its safe delivery in any town to which it was sent. One of these great, closely-written sheets, bearing in faded ink the names of all the Beechers, lies outspread before us as we
pieces of negro property you will be guilty of holding after you are dead. Very likely your children may be selling them. Hattie, I rejoice over this completed work. Another work for God and your generation. I am glad that you have come out of it alive, that you have pleasure in prospect, that you walk at liberty and have done with fits of languishing. Perhaps some day I shall be set free, but the prospect does not look promising, except as I have full faith that the Good Man above is looking on, and will bring it all round right. Still heart and flesh both fail me. He will be the strength of my heart, and I never seem to doubt my portion forever. If I never speak to you again, this is the farewell utterance. Yours truly, Georgiana. Mrs. Stowe was accompanied on this second trip to Europe by her husband, her two eldest daughters, her son Henry, and her sister Mary (Mrs. Perkins). It was a pleasant summer voyage, and was safely accomplished without special incident.
, kindly manners. I expect to be in Natick the last week in September. God bless you all. C. E. Stowe. After her husband's departure for the United States, Mrs. Stowe, with her son Henry, her two eldest daughters, and her sister Mary (Mrs. Perkins), accepted the Duke of Argyll's invitation to visit the Highlands. Of this visit we catch a pleasant glimpse from a letter written to Professor Stowe during its continuance, which is as follows:-- Inverary Castle, September 6, 1856. My Dedial manner. Then followed a beautiful prayer for our country, for America, on which hang so many of the hopes of Protestantism. One and all then came up, and there was great shaking of hands and much effusion. Under date of December 28, Mrs. Perkins writes: On Sunday we went with Mr. and Mrs. (Jacob) Abbott to the Hotel des Invalides, and I think I was never more interested and affected. Three or four thousand old and disabled soldiers have here a beautiful and comfortable home. We

After leaving Paris Mrs. Stowe and her sister, Mrs. Perkins, traveled leisurely through the South of France toward Italy, stopping at Amiens, Lyons, and Marseilles. At this place they took steamer for Genoa, Leghorn, and Civita Vecchia. During their last night on shipboard they met with an accident, of which, and their subsequent trials in reaching Rome, Mrs. Stowe writes as follows-- About eleven o'clock, as I had just tranquilly laid down in my berth, I was roused by a grating crash, accompanied by a shock that shook the whole ship, and followed by the sound of a general rush on deck, trampling, scuffling, and cries. I rushed to the d

In 1866, the terrible conflict between the North and South having ended, Mrs. Stowe wrote the following letter to the Duchess of Argyll:-- Hartford, February 19, 1866. My dear friend,--Your letter was a real spring of comfort to me, bringing refreshingly the pleasant library at Inverary and the lovely days I spent there. I am grieved at what you say of your dear mother's health. I showed your letter to Mrs. Perkins, and we both agreed in saying that we should like for a time to fill the place of maid to her, as doubtless you all feel, too. I should so love to be with her, to read to her, and talk to her! and oh, there is so much that would cheer and comfort a noble heart like hers that we could talk about. Oh, my friend, when I think of what has been done these last few years, and of what is now doing, I am lost in amazement. I have just, by way of realizing it to myself, been reading Uncle Tom's

fty dollars per quarter for tending the toll gate. When the building of the Medford branch railroad was under consideration (1846) the Turnpike Corporation voted to sell the franchise of the corporation to the Boston and Maine Railroad Extension Company (later called the B. & M. Railroad Co.) for the sum of $10,000 including all the damage sustained by the railroad crossing said turnpike. September 6, 1860, it was voted to sell the land and buildings then occupied by the toll gatherer, Thomas Perkins, to the said Perkins for the sum of $600.00 At a meeting held May 8, 1861, it was voted that the corporation hereby give their consent to the county commissioners of Middlesex County to lay open their road as a public highway, upon the petition of George T. Cutter and others, the said commissioners awarding to the corporation what damages shall in their judgment be right and just. The committee appointed to confer with the county commissioners reported that the commissioners do not d
