[p. 35] On Sunday following the disaster, Medford was thronged by many thousands who came to view the scene. The writer was among them, and though less than six years old then, still has vivid memories of wrecked buildings, uprooted and fallen trees, and of the gale at his home, five miles away. It seems miraculous that no greater loss of life occurred. Doubtless the expression made in the citizens' meeting referred to, ‘Now we feel ourselves called upon to acknowledge our gratitude to God for the preservation of our lives in the midst of greatest peril and danger,’ was heartfelt.
