A foot-note says: These brigs were put together: then taken to pieces and sent to the Sandwich Islands on board the Thaddeus commanded by Captain A. Blanchard of Medford. By the very slight difference in their tonnage, it is evident the ordinary-named Jones was a duplicate of the long-named Tama-houre-laune, and even if built knockdown, must have been a full freight for the Thaddeus, scarcely leaving room for that traditional cargo of Missionaries and Medford rum. As only these two are mentioned as thus constructed, there must be some foundation of fact in the foot-note, the details of which we wish could be explained; the probability is that only the frame

18 Mrs. Mary Soule Googins, a member (and Mayflower descendant from George Soule) read an interesting paper,The Women of the Mayflower, which is in register, Vol. XXVI, p. 25. The Bay Path following the Indian trail to Connecticut was also considered. The annual meeting was on January 16, 1922. It was certainly a Lodge of Sorrow. The members stood while the president again announced the passing away of Messrs. Lawrence and Manning, followed by those of Miss Agnes Wyman Lincoln, Charles Nelson Jones and John Henry Hooper; a series of great losses to the Society and unprecedented in its history.

Especial mention of the interest and service of all was made by members present; especially of the long life and public service of Mr. Hooper and his contributions to Medf
