othing had disturbed him No one moved. I sat with Dr. John C. Warren, Senior, and he whispered to me, I don't know but I had better go to him: it has never been so bad before in the pulpit But it was not necessary. I did not go to his house that evening. The next day, or the next but one, he was prostrated by a violent attack of epilepsy. Some one—I forget who—came to tell me of it, and I went immediately to his home. Dr. Oliver Keating, a connection of the family, was there, and Dr. John Warren. Dr. Keating, after consulting with Miss Lucy Buckminster, asked me if I could stay there, adding that he should be in the house as much as he could. Though formerly a physician, he was then an active merchant. I was much gratified at being asked, and gladly consented. I left the house very little while he lived, attending to whatever I could do, and occasionally going to the room where lay my unconscious friend. Mrs. Theodore Lyman, also a connection, was much in the house, suppo

A little to the west on the north side was the farm and house of Dr. Josiah Clark, containing 150 acres. Here afterwards John Warren built a house, in which was used the old oak frame of the parsonage of Rev. Warham Williams; later, this was known as the Maxwell house. The old frame is still standing in the barn belonging to the residence of Mr. Bowker, Next west, and on tBeaver Street, near the Watertown line, is the house occupied by Captain Samuel Barnes in 1798. His father-in-law, Phinehas Warren, father of Peter, occupied the place before him, and he was probably preceded by his father Joshua, grandson of John Warren, who came to Watertown in 1630, and with Abraham Browne was appointed to lay out all the highways. March 14, 1658-59, he was warned for not attending public worship; but Old Warren is not to be found in town. He was also fined for not attend

To be sure he dealt in wines by the tierce, and these he bestowed in quantities sufficient in which to take a bath. This was in years before the Washingtonian movement. He was generous to Governor John Brooks, Dr. John Warren, Captain John Pratt, R. D. Shepherd and John Coffin Jones. The wines contributed to the festivities and good fellowship of the day. He did not forget his friends, and in those days of his intense distress he did not forget good causes, nor the finest interests of his own people. To the Jewish Synagogue in New York city he gave $10,000; also he gave to the Legislature of Rhode Island the sum of $10,000 for the support of the Synagogue in Newport, and to the Massachusetts General Hospit

A severe fight ensued, and the enemy were repulsed and driven back nearly two miles, to their line of entrenchments, behind which they sought shelter, and which proving too strong for our forces, they retired to their original position, having accomplished the object for which they forward — the result of their reconnaissance being that the enemy were strongly entrenched, in heavy force, on our right (their left) Our losses will foot up two hundred an
