emoved a few years ago. After John Brooks left the eastern half of this house, Joseph Barrel, Jr., of Boston, became the next tenant. His wife was Miss Electa Bingham of Boston, and there is the record of two children being born here to this couple in 1796 and 1799. One of these, Electa Barrel, became the bride of Samson V. S. Wilder, who was noted in Bolton for his lavish hospitality, where he lived for a number of years. Bolton also is the birthplace of our venerable townswoman, Miss Zipporah Sawyer, who has assisted so many in our educational careers. As a child five years of age she remembers the illumination that night for the distinguished guest, and the occasion is particularly impressed on her mind, for the fence in front of her father's house was set on fire by some light placed upon it. Hero worship began early with me. For no reason that I can give, before I was nine years old Daniel Webster had caught my imagination, and stories about him, and his pictures, have ha
Zipporah Sawyer. 1819-1916. [Read before the Medford Historical Society, December 18, 1916.] Miss Sawyer was born in Bolton, Mass., August 31, 1819.

Her father, Dr. Levi Sawyer, was the physician of Bolton and of all the country around. He was a man of marked individuality, a quality our townswoman inherited to a high degree; she was Miss Sawyer on the street, in the church, in the committee room, Miss Sawyer and no one else. Her earliest years were spent in her Bolton home, where, as time went on, she combined the duties of a farmer's daughter with those of a doctor's helper, for in those days of thrift and industry a profession was rarely separated from the work of the farm.

gretted his recognition of His Honor, as he was about to speak of the same and to introduce Dr. Charles M. Green, president of the Royall House Association. This was then done and Dr. Green responded in felicitous remarks, alluding to the work of both organizations as important to our old city. Dr. Green is the author of the able paper, Early Physicians of Medford, and also substantially interested in the new home of this Society. Attention was called to the portraits of the late Miss Zipporah Sawyer and her brother, Rufus Sawyer, recently come into possession of the Society according to her wish. A letter from the attorneys of her estate was read by Judge Wait, presenting to the Society a bill of 1794 in the handwriting of Paul Revere of One Silver Cann £ 8.3:2 to one——Whitman. This was Dr. Whitman of Bolton, Mass., with whom Miss Sawyer's father studied medicine and of whom he received his certificate as Doctor of Medicine and Surgery. Evidently Dr. Sawyer recognized the int

Hervey has a new store, too, and always was the quality grocer. Curtis specializes in Old Royall House Coffee. Of course Medford people want that, and will use Hampden Cream, for sugar is scarce, though one advertiser is Sugerman. The ladies will be sweet on him, for he's a Ladies' Tailor. For your laundry work Crystal Blue is the real thing, if Sawyer's; but if you have it done out, Tel. Rox. 283 for daily delivery. Page & Curtin will sell you stoves (oil, gas or coal), do your plumbing, and no end of other things. Dyer will install your heater, but it will need coal to run it, and Cowin will have that for you. Volpe has fruit of all kinds, vegetables ditto, first-class, too. If you need medicines the Smith Drug Store and Washington Square Pharmacy have everything. Beside, there's Bowers, who adds kodaks, and will develop for
