the busy season employs about forty hands. The output is sold mainly in New England, although there is some export trade. Elmer H. Grey is president, and M. S. Fickett treasurer, of the company. The Boston office is 90 Canal Street. Charles E. Pierce & Co., manufacturers of tin cans, 442 Main Street, began business in 1875, and at present employ about twenty hands. They make a specialty of cracker, varnish, and syrup cans, the work being done with dies and machinery. They are the ping screw can-top, used in all kinds of preserve cans. The concern uses mostly American tin plate, made in sizes to suit their work. The manufactured goods are sold all over New England, and shipped West as far as St. Paul. The partners are C. E.

s book. The lapse of time has shown the survivors of the Battery that this omission on the part of their historian was a mistake; that many of them could have been materially aided in establishing their claims for a pension had these records been available, and that other historical material omitted should have found place in the volume. Acting on this idea at the last meeting of the Battery Association a committee was chosen, consisting of John D. Billings, Maj. Milbrey Green and Lieut. Charles E. Pierce and given full power to print the contents of the Morning Report Book with such other valuable historical material as seemed desirable. That committee, after careful deliberation, decided it to be the part of wisdom to publish these Morning Reports, adding to them the history written many years ago carefully revised and corrected with its roster made accurate and complete. The committee also voted to include in the volume such portraits of members as can now be obtained and as m
perations of the Secoqld Corps; to the late Maj. Gen. William H. French for official reports of campaigns of the Third Corps during our connection with it; to the Hon. William Claflin for a complete set of government maps which have enabled me to trace with accuracy our lines of march in nearly all the movements in which we participated; to Maj. J. Henry Sleeper for his many kind offices during tlhe progress of thle work; to my associates of the committee, Messrs. William E. Endicott, Charles E. Pierce, Willard Y. Gross, George M. Townsend, and G. Fred. Gould, for the information and kindly criticism they have contributed; and to many more whose assistance has been less important only in degree. In the prosecution of my researches, I have examined a large mass of war material, and have sought information by correspondence from commanders or eye-witnesses on both sides. I am also indebted to the past officers who have contributed their portraits. With this introduction I now su

Pierce were somewhat surprised to see a battery of Napoleons come up to relieve us, and still more so at being ordered back into the fort we passed the night for the Battery, being mainly devoted to resting and cleaning up,—two by no means unimportant enterprises in connection with active campaigning.
