[31] as donor of the land and friend of the parish, Edwin Munroe, Jr., as treasurer and chairman of the standing committee for so many years, Charles Williams, as clerk of the parish and superintendent of the Sunday School for a long term of years, J. Q. Twombly, collector, and long a member of the standing committee, Erastus E. Cole, with years of service as committeeman and adviser, Charles Williams, Jr., as superintendent of the Sunday School for many years, John Hunnewell, clerk of the parish, George W. Ireland, committeeman and generous giver, Reuben Horton, a staunch friend and member of the standing committee, while the wives of the above-named, together with Mrs. Charles Munroe, Mr.Munroe and Mrs. Sweetzer Munroe, Francis Russell, and David Russell, were not a whit behind in their zeal and earnestness in helping on the work of the infant society.

The bequest of the late Mrs. Tufts, amounting to $5,000, has been referred to; the society has received other amounts from time to time: One of $2,000 from the estate of a Mr. Hutchinson; another of $500 from the late Joseph Clark; and a third of $1,000 from the late Deacon George W. Ireland,—altogether, $8,500.

I have also prepared a statement showing the terms of office of the several superintendents of the Sunday School, also of the parish treasurers, clerks, and the members of the standing committees from the organization of the society to the present time, which may be of value should the parish desire to print the proceedings of the semi-centennial celebration.

In the limited time allowed me, I have endeavored to present as much of historical interest as possible up to the year 1891. The more recent happenings are familiar to you all.
