Those other Medfords.
The verses found elsewhere in this issue bring to mind the effort made by the Register a few years since, to furnish some reliable information of the other Medfords
of our country (see Vol.
XV II, p. 99). We had then secured a portion, but being under prospect of discontinuance, could not well pursue inquiry of the eight then unheard from.
There were then fourteen in all. At this later date, former councilman Evans
seems to have no better success with Arkansas
, than did the Register.
Just now we are wondering what the “Nathaniel Medford Club” organized in Pittsburg
in 1864 was, and whether Medford
enterprise (or spirit) was operative in the smoky city fifty-four years ago. We find the same mentioned in one of our recent exchanges.
Who knows anything about it?
