1 Some recollections of Dr. Cutter's boyhood, by Mr. J. B. Russell, are interesting: ‘He was truthful, studious and particularly brave, in all personal matters. He had great admiration for the heroes of ancient history, in which he was well posted. For instance, as to his plucky character: when the school was out, Saturday afternoons, the up-town boys would have a grand snowballing with the down-towners, the school-house being the dividing line. The general battle would finally settle down to personal rencounters. He would always tackle some boy larger than himself, and stick to him pertinaciously, though sure of being overcome at last, and “muzzled,” that is, snow rubbed down his bare back. He was a great reader, day and night, and his sister Anna, who was a sort of house-keeper, finding he sat up late reading after he retired, would allow him only a short piece of candle on going to bed. He got even with her by secreting a whole one in the course of the day, and then reading as late as he pleased.’
