A Medford author's residence.

Referring to Francis Green, a Medford author, we said (page 83, Vol. Xviii),
As yet we have not learned his dwelling place.

Had we consulted our former pages we should have found the following (page 97, Vol. Xv),

Francis Green,. . . came to Medford about 1798, and two years later occupied the house later belonging to Samuel Swan (Watson house.)

We have received the following from the author of the above, which by request we insert, [p. 72]

If the editor will refer to the October issue of the Register, page 97, he will find a statement which disproves [?] the one made on page 83. . . 1915.

We have now learned where was the dwelling-place of Francis Green, and on the authority of Caleb Swan, as noted by our contributor, state it to have been in that house next north the old third meeting-house, which was more recently known as the Watson house, and a few years since demolished.
