. Gurney. This bare statement of the first steps in the organization gives no intimation of the long consideration that had been devoted to the subject by Mr. and Mrs. Gilman, of the hesitation with which the presentation of the matter to Professor Greenough had been made, nor of the anxiety which they had had lest he might not favor it. After the matter had been approved by one professor, it was laid before many others, and they made no delay in giving their allegiance to it. This was in 1878. Finally, in February, 1879, on Washington's Birthday, the first announcement was made, by a circular headed Private Collegiate Instruction for Women. This was signed by the seven ladies, and all correspondence was directed to be sent to the secretary. The statements in the circular were, of necessity, vague, but in many quarters it was at once assumed that Harvard College had opened its doors to women, and letters came from different parts of the country based upon this assumption.

The Press has always given close attention to municipal affairs, and was the first Cambridge paper to advocate the no-license policy. Mr. Cox, who established the paper just thirty years ago, is still in possession, although he has passed full threescore and ten years of an honorable and respected life, and is the Nestor of Cambridge journalism. The Cambridge Tribune was founded in 1878 by Mr. D. Gilbert Dexter, the first issue appearing on March 7 of that year. Our local papers, the Chronicle and Press, were both published at Cambridgeport. The Tribune was the first newspaper especially identified with Old Cambridge, and it has continued to occupy its chosen field without competition, proving both the wise judgment displayed in selecting its home, and also that it has satisfactorily filled the field. At first, the Tribune was printed at the University Press, although i

In 1867 the new church on Massachusetts Avenue was opened. St. James's Parish, in North Cambridge, was organized in 1866. A mission of the Protestant Episcopal Church had been sustained in that part of the city for eighteen months, under the charge of the Rev. Andrew Croswell. He was followed by Rev. W. H. Fultz and Rev. T. S. Tyng. In 1878 Rev. Edward Abbott took charge of the parish, and has remained its rector. In 1889 a fine stone church was completed. The parish has enjoyed an increasing prosperity in its enlarged work. There are other Episcopal churches in different parts of the city. The Episcopal Theological School was incorporated in 1867. This is described elsewhere. In other parts of the city Episcopal services are sustained. A few years since a Reformed Episcopal Church was established in Cambridgeport. Fol

The endowment was in the form of securities, which unfortunately proved to be of little or no value, and soon after the opening of the Home the trustees were compelled to call on their friends for contributions to enable them to carry on this work which was so pressing. Their appeal was answered, and it is worthy of record that during the whole period of the existence of the Home no debt has ever been incurred. In 1878 an adjoining lot on Avon Hill Street was given by the Holly Tree Inn, and in the following year the house was enlarged so that from twenty-five to thirty children could be accommodated. In 1879 a gift of $300 from the Cambridge Horticultural Society was received, of which only the income could be spent, and this formed the beginning of a permanent fund, which has since been increased by legacies and gifts.
