He frequently served as chairman of the Committee of the Whole, duringe family as the first little Julia. My two eldest brothers, Samuel and Henry Ward, were pupils at Round Hill School. The third, Francis Marion, named for the Genears, loved to talk of a visit which she had made in her youth to my grandfather Ward, then resident in New York. She had not quite forgiven him for not allowing hern at the upper extremity of New York city. My father's friends said to him, Mr Ward, you are going out of town.

He was for a great part of his life a martyr to rheumatic gout, and a witty friend of his once said: Ward, it must be the poor man's gout that you have, as you drink only water. We breakfasted at eight in winter, at half past 7 in summer. My father read prayers beflera in 1832. Despite a certain austerity of character, my father was much beloved and honored in the business world. He did much to give to the firm of Prime, Ward and King the high position which it attained and retained during his lifetime. He told me once that when he first entered the office, he found it, like many otheres through his grandmother, Catharine Ray Greene, had probably aided in securing for him a clerk's place in the banking house of Prime and Sands, afterwards Prime, Ward and King.

Chapter 6: Samuel Ward and the Astors My first peep at the great world in grown-up days was at a dinner party given by a daughter of General Armstrong, married to the eldest son of the first John Jacob Astor. Mrs. Astor was a person of very ed friends on one evening in the week, giving only a cup of chocolate and some cakes or biscuits. My eldest brother, Samuel Ward, the fourth of the same name, has been so well known, both in public and in private life, that my reminiscences would s to earn his own support. The easiest way for him to accomplish this was to accept a post in the banking house of Prime, Ward and King, with the prospect of partnership later.

And I thought how this piece of New England belonged to the world. One of the most imposing figures in my gallery of remembrance is that of Charles Sumner, senator and martyr. When I first saw him I was still a girl in my father's house, from which the father had then but recently passed.
