The March meeting on evening of 19th was at the close of a rainy, dismal day. Fourteen (including three visitors from Somerville society) braved the sudden cold to attend. Miss Marion Hosmer, West Medford, read an interesting story of the old Woburn road and the Count Rumford house at North Woburn, which is preserved and owned by the Rumford Historical Society. Her mention of the ‘Jug Baptist church’ in Woburn elicited inquiry, and Mr. Mann, who is conversant with its history, told something of it and how it got the name.

April 16. A general discussion of April events to make note of occupied this evening.

May 21. The heavy rain of the day ceased at nightfall but for only two hours, and the closing meeting was but lightly attended, those present coming the longest distances.

Rev. Anson Titus of West Somerville spoke on ‘Jim Franklin, Ben's Big Brother,’ making special reference to Samuel Hall of Medford, ‘spiritual heir’ of James Franklin who married into the family and printed the Essex Gazette in Revolutionary days. Mr. Titus' instructive paper appeared in register, Vol. XXVI, p. 42.
