Cambridge sketches (ed. Estelle M. H. Merrill), Town and Gown. (search)
The second mayor of the city was Sidney Willard, professor of Hebrew and other Oriental Languages in the Divinity School, and the author of a Hebrew grammar. His studious habits secured him the nickname among his students of Val from a letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Yet this quiet scholar was three times mayor of Cambridge, for two years a member of the Governor's council, and represented his city in the two branches of the legislature for seven years. Another professor of Hebrew, John G. Palfrey, was elected a member of Congress and was postmaster of the city of Boston for six years. Other professors who have not served the city in an official capacity have been warmly interested in the affairs of the community. It was mainly due to Professor Story that Cambridge secured the right to enclose the common, in spite of the strenuous opposition of neighboring towns claiming a prescriptive right to drive across it herds of cattle destined for Brighton. Judge Story was a model c

West of Burbank's were the houses of Mr. Swett, of Mr. Leland, carriage builder, and of Mr. Pettengill, all still standing, and perhaps one or two others. Mr. Swett was killed at the Somerville-avenue crossing of the Fitchburg railroad. Along the west side of Beacon street, north of Washington (Kirkland street in Cambridge), lay Palfrey's and Norton's groves. These umbral parks were really in Cambridge; they were the resort of old and young in the summer time; they were owned by Hon. John G. Palfrey, author of the history of New England, and by Professor Charles Eliot Norton, a friend of Longfellow's. Mr. Norton is still living. From Union square west up Somerville avenue the nearest house was owned by Primus Hall, a colored man; it still stands. It has its corner cut off, which was done when that part of Somerville avenue was laid out about the year 1813, and again when the avenue was widened in 1874; previously it was reached by a court from Bow street. Further west, and back

pigs and s pointers met on May-day on the renowned (not then, but now) Prospect Hill, and there on the former tented field they met in war's grim struggle and settled, or tried to, their long-pent feuds; but these were bloodless fields, where a few stone bruises or fistic contusions constituted the losses on either side. Picnicking was a recreation of the days before the war; people from Union Square and its neighborhood found health and amusement in the sylvan retreats of Norton's or of Palfrey's groves, or in excursions to the grounds and groves of Fresh and Spy Ponds. Union Square, like all other communities, had of course from time to, time its little excitements, and occasionally larger ones. Among the latter was the great tidal wave which destroyed Minot's Ledge lighthouse; this wave swept inland, inundating all low lands in Boston and along the coast. It came up the Charles and Miller's Rivers, flooding all the lands along them nearly to or beyond the Brass Tube Works;

ions with no signs of losing it. Among the best known poems are the following: The Exile at St. Helena, The Address of Warren to the American Soldiers, The Pilgrim Fathers. The highest flight of his fancy and his best contribution to our literature is Passing Away. He was also the author of many fine hymns, besides a great number of temperance and anti-slavery poems. Mr. Pierpont was graduated from the Divinity School of Harvard College in 1818 in the class with Convers Francis, John G. Palfrey, Jared Sparks and Geo. Bancroft, all of them men who made a special mark upon their time. In 1819 he was called to be the minister of Hollis Street Church, Boston, succeeding the Rev. Dr. Holley, a man of eminence in his profession. The church was one of the most important in the city, and it seemed as if he were entering upon a new and happier day. He was now thirty-four years old, of superior ability and education and of wide experience of life. Added to his gifts and attainments w
