1 John Russell Estabrook, a native of West Camb. (b. in 1801）—in 1820 for family reasons had his name changed to John Brooks Russell, by the legislature. When he was 16, he left for Boston, to learn the printer's trade. In a letter to the writer of this notice, he says, ‘Your father and I were intimate playmates and schoolmates from early childhood. . . . Your father, as well as myself, was a great reader of History and Biography, &c.; and, say in 1813 to 1816, we read everything worth reading in the old Social Library of that day, which then contained but little over 100 vols.; also all the books we could borrow, as they were scarce in that day. Rev. Dr. Fiske was librarian.’ Mr. Russell has furnished some valuable additions to this work.
