ney, which he borrowed of Dr. Farnsworth, of Groton, and we immediately started the plan of the Standard. . . . It was sustained—mainly by means of the Fair—ever after by the Society (unwillingly, however, as the best men, both financially and as abolitionists— Francis Jackson, for example—preferred the Liberator, and thought it sufficient), up to the time when the abolition of slavery made it needless. Various friends contributed to sustain it editorially, till, some time in 1841, Mrs. [Lydia Maria] Child was appointed editor by the Exec. Com.(not Mr. C., who was never editor, although I obtained and paid for his services as a reporter, at Washington, for a short time). . . . I have had a good many letters to write since I have got over the fatigue of the annual meeting, as well as many other things to attend to. Hence, together with the continual anxiety of my mind about the packet, I have not felt in the mood of writing anything in relation to the anti-slavery controversy,

e final word. It was only on the second reading that you became conscious of a certain limitation; the thought never went very deep, there was no wide outlook, no ideal atmosphere. While, therefore, his work had a considerable and wholesome influence upon his immediate audience, and was well worth doing, it cannot be considered as a strong original contribution to American letters.

There was Lydia Maria Child, for instance, whose Appeal for that class of Americans called Africans was the first anti-slavery appeal in book form; and had very marked influence on her younger contemporaries. Mrs. Child's Letters from New York were so brilliant as to be ranked with similar work of Lowell's for quality, but have now almost passed into oblivion.

Lydia Maria child. T. W. Higginson. To those of us who are by twenty years or more the juniors of Mrs. Child, she presents herself rather as an object of love than of cool criticism, even if we have rarely met her face to face. In our earliest recollections she comes before us less as author or philanthropist than as some kindly and omnipresent aunt, beloved forever by the heart of childhood, --some one gifted with all lore, and furnished with unfathomable resources,--some one discoursitions were peculiarly zealous, and must have influenced his children's later career. He married Susannah Rand, of whom it is only recorded that she had a simple, loving heart, and a spirit busy in doing good. They had six children, of whom Lydia Maria was the youngest, and Convers the next in age.

torical Society be formed, found a quick and hearty response from many kindred spirits. Preliminary meetings were held, and organization and incorporation were effected. The charter list contained one hundred and thirty-two names. The Society sprang at once into active and agressive life. In October, 1896, it planned and carried to a successful issue a historic festival, happily named On the Banks of the Mystic, and which was conceded to be, as a whole, the finest entertainment ever presented to a Medford audience. The financial results of the festival enabled the Society to rent and suitably furnish the quarters now occupied, a cut of which is shown on the cover of this register. The house is itself an interesting landmark, having the distinction of a goodly age, and of being the birthplace of Lydia Maria (Francis) Child, in 1802. A large representation of the Society's seal on a wooden tablet designates the building as the headquarters of the Medford Historical Society.
