Story of a Medford piano. by Moses W. Mann. WERE we to enumerate those of today it would appear like wholesale business. The one under present consideration was in Medford in 1800-04, and possibly the first of its kind in our old town. At that time it was comparatively new. It is still not far away (as will be shown) but is voiceless, and in age and feebleness extreme. It is only recently that the writer learned of it and of its present resting place, and set about tracing its history. In Vol. VII, No. 2, may be found the excellent story of Susanna Rowson and her famous school for young ladies, prepared by the late Mary Sargent, and read by her before the Historical Society, October, 1903. To that the reader is referred for the setting and location of this piano while in Medford (though no allusion is there made to it), the present writer only remarking that Mrs. Rowson's school was housed in a building on High street, removed just prior to the erection of Grace Church an

Written by John Newland Maffit in 1828 (for the first house of First M. E. Church on Cross street), it was on this occasion thrown on the screen and sung by choir and people. After introduction by the chairman (who later, upon call, read from the records of the first two meetings for organization) the historical address was given by Moses Whitcher Mann, an original member, and illustrated by one hundred and seven lantern slides. Dealing briefly with the early history of the ancient town, the introduction of Methodism in 1822, the speaker told of the West Medford of the seventies into which Methodism came. Tracing the history for fifty years, portraits of nearly every pastor and wife were shown. The first official board and many of church workers and members of early years, and the Ladies' Aid down to date were shown, and those
