[p. 41] eighty-two; whole number of persons acting as teachers during the year , fifteen. At present, 1901, there are on the books of the Sunday-school the names of one hundred and two children, nine teachers and three officers; Mr. Allison M. Stickney being superintendent. There is also a Bible class, which meets on a week-day evening, conducted by the rector. Some of the men who have been identified with the work of the Sunday-school besides Mr. Seymour and Mr. Gates, are Henry H. Elliott, Benj. P. Hollis, Chas. E. Kummer, Allison M. Stickney and Fred H. Fletcher. The latter died suddenly in September, 1901. He was not only an efficient superintendent, but had served the church in almost every capacity. ‘It would be hard to overestimate the value of his services or exaggerate the greatness of the loss the parish sustained in his death.’ The parish has for some years carried on a school at Wellington. It was organized by the Rev. A. B. Moorehouse and Miss E. M. W. Andrews, and commenced November 5, 1893, the classes being held in the houses of the teachers, five in number. In April, 1894, these classes met in Amaranth Hall, with Mr. Fred H. Fletcher, superintendent, and the school has continued to meet there, except during the summer months. The present superintendent is Mr. Chas. F. Weeks, Miss Andrews being secretary and treasurer. The expenses are met by some half-dozen residents and the weekly offerings. About the time the school was organized the Rev. A. B. Moorehouse started services which were held in the home of Mrs. Kendall, and these services have been continued at intervals in Amaranth Hall by Rev. E. P. Lee of West Somerville and the Rev. F. I. Paradise.
