without the removal of the partition or the addition of a porch. The committee was given full powers with reference to both houses. Miss Susan Ann Warren began the summer term at Winter Hill June 4; the next week Miss Gardner at No. 5, and Miss Ann Brown at No. 4 opened their schools. The last mentioned, being transferred to one of the primary schools on the peninsula, was succeeded by Miss Elizabeth Gerrish, July 3. About this time Mr. Kelley resigned, and Chester Adams was assigned to his; Susan R. Warren, $80; Elizabeth Gerrish, $52.31. In the autumn of 1827 the people at Milk Row were allowed to use their schoolhouse during the recess for a private school. No 2 primary school was vacated by the death of Miss French, and Miss Ann Brown was given the position. The trustees have considered it expedient to, continue the children in the primary schools until they are eight years old.

ffice that year. The first lady teacher in this district whose name has come down to us was Miss Sarah Perry, who taught during the spring, summer, and autumn of 1825. The late Mrs. Lucretia Russell Carr, granddaughter of the above-named James Russell, vividly remembered Miss Perry, who was her first teacher. Her words were: She boarded with my grandmother and I liked her. Mrs. Carr was then but three years old. Other female teachers of this period were Hersina Knight, 1826, and Miss Ann Brown, 1827, the latter of whom, on being transferred to a school in Old Charlestown, was succeeded July 3 by Elizabeth Gerrish. Later Miss Gerrish taught the lower Winter Hill School. For the summer of 1828 Miss Miranda Whittemore was engaged, a daughter of Jonathan Whittemore, of West Cambridge. His homestead is still standing on Massachusetts Avenue (nearer to Boston than the John P. Squire estate). Miss Whittemore was the first teacher of Mrs. Susanna Russell Cook, to whom the writer o

Medford) and Harris (New England Royalls) state that Isaac Royal married Elizabeth, daughter of Asaph Elliot of Boston, which is undoubtedly correct. Harris further states that this Elizabeth had been previously married to one Oliver by whom she had a male child (presumably Robert Oliver). But the Elizabeth Royall who came to Charlestown with her husband was the widow of James Brown of Antigua, and was married to Isaac Royall in Antigua, June 3, 1707. Her daughter by her former husband, Ann Brown, married (also in Antigua), February 3, 1721, Robert Oliver. This seems more reasonable than to suppose that a widow Oliver should have been married a second time under her maiden name of Elliot, for so the record stands. Brooks speaks of the suspicion that naturally fell upon our Isaac Royall on account of his affiliation with the Vassalls of Cambridge. Penelope Royall's husband was Henry Vassall of Cambridge, who died about 1769. His brother John, who built the Longfellow house, left

The Whitmores of Medford and some of their descendants. [Read before the Medford Historical Society.] I have been told by our President, Mr. Brown, that one of the many good and wise things that have been done by this society is collecting and preserving the history of the old families who lived in Medford in its early days. Many of these still remain here—others lived here but a short time. In some cases the names are lost, though their descendants, through the marriages of their daughters, may be with us now. Others, still, vanished so long ago that there remains very little trace of them, except in the town and county records. The Whitmore family about which I am to speak tonight belongs to the latter class. Curiously enough, however, it is to one of its descendants that Medford is indebted for much that is known about its history. I refer to Mr. William Henry Whitmore of Boston, who assisted the Rev. Charles Brooks in compiling the History of Medford published in 1
voted with the Breckinridge wing in the late election. The meeting was opened in most solemn form by prayer from the Rev. Dr. Axson, of the Independent Presbyterian Church, upon the announcement of which the whole assemblage rose to their feet with one accord, and perfect silence prevailed from its beginning to its close. After the meeting adjourned, a large procession, accompanied by a band of music, paraded the streets almost the entire night, and serenaded a number of citizens. Gov. Brown, of Georgia, has authorized C. A. L.
