hat had happened or might happen to some beloved relative or friend still on the field of strife. At last, arriving at Lewiston station, the whole population appeared to have turned out to greet us. We were not suffered to cross the river into Auburn, and meet my little family after more than a year's separation, till words of welcome and appreciation had been spoken and acknowledged. Then the desired relief from such patriotic love came and we hastened to the hotel in Auburn where my wife aAuburn where my wife and children were. Sweet, indeed, was the rest of a few subsequent days when we enjoyed the nursing and comforts of home. My confinement to my room was brief — not over three days. Ten days after our arrival, accompanied by my friend Dr. Wiggin, later a surgeon in the Twenty-first Maine, I visited Portland and participated in a State religious convention, where I gave two public addresses. After speaking in Livermore on July 4th, in descending a flight of steps I slipped and fell. I tri
oundary line of Cambridge. In the early settlement of the town, the tract was known as Stone's Woods, being the northerly part of Simon Stone's farming lands, which were bounded on the south by Charles River. The woods were later known as Sweet Auburn, and were the property of the Massachusetts Horticultural Society. In June, 1831, this society, by an act of the legislature, was authorized to appropriate any part of its real estate for a rural cemetery or burial-ground. The design for such a cemetery had long been considered with approbation, and the favored opportunity of securing Sweet Auburn for the purpose was at once earnestly attempted. This tract is undulating, and contains bold eminences and attractive dales. The highest ground is one hundred and twenty-five feet above Charles River, and on it stands a stone tower sixty feet high. From the tower the winding Charles, in all its beauty, can be seen in one direction; the city of Boston, and the Blue Hills of Milton are in t

ttled, whether they are to go with the regiment or not — probably not. I hope not, as they are bad companies and poorly officered. This has given extra solicitude to me. If all the regiment were like my company it would be clear enjoyment. October 4 I am much pleased with the officers of the eight remaining companies: none are highly cultivated, but almost all are intelligent and manly and the majority are fine-looking — more so than usual. Yesterday we marched over the hills into Auburn, about three miles, to visit the homestead of one of our company named Rice, a nice, rosy boy. As we descended, I suddenly became aware of waving handkerchiefs in an orchard and found that there was a small outdoor entertainment for us, men, women, and children, some thirty or forty, between two great apple trees with an American flag hung above, a table with bread and butter, doughnuts, cheese and apples; and the parish minister to make a speech. So we partook of these various entertainmen

ersonality more fully and charmingly revealed. The essays are full of good things. Allusion and quotation, epigram and description, whimsical epithet and graphic phrase crowd one another along the page, but all move in the train of Wit and Wisdom, our constant companions along the way. The glimpses of New England village life that one receives in the essays will appeal to some readers with a charm like that of personality. The village has often been celebrated in literature from Sweet Auburn to Spoon River, but full justice has scarcely been done to the individuality and distinction of the New England village of the mid-nineteenth century. Cambridge was one of the best representatives of the type, but there were many of them. Each was likely to have a college, or at least an academy, one orthodox and one Unitarian church, a few pleasant colonial houses, and many elms. Everyone who lived in the village had been born there, was proud of that accident, loved whatever natural bea

if we ever reach the arbitrament of arms, find occupation enough at home. Independent Democrat, Concord, N. H., Sept. 17, 1863; Greeley's Am. Conflict, 1.513; Lib. 33.158. On the other hand, the acknowledged coming man of the Republican Party, William H. Seward, doubtless well content to have been absent in Europe during the John Brown excitement, landed in New York on Lib. 30.3. December 27, 1859, to the sound of guns in the City Hall park, and made a triumphal progress to his home in Auburn. Resuming his place in the Senate, where he was shunned Lib. 30.11. by his virtuous Southern colleagues, he made his first manifesto in a speech on his bill to admit Kansas. Instead Feb. 29, 1860; Lib. 30.31, 37. of proclaiming afresh, with all the force of the latest evidence, the irrepressible conflict, he argued that there was no need of collision. Instead of justifying his Rochester Ante, p. 469. speech with John Brown, he repudiated him and justified his punishment. Instead of p

You speak of the Rural Cemetery at Sweet Auburn. I am pleased with the project. It will undoubtedly succeed. I am happy to learn that father contemplates taking a spot there; with those pleasant places my college days are tenderly connected, and I would love there to sleep my long, cold sle, By Tweed's green shores, and down the golden Rhine; They hoped to hear their youthful preacher raise His suppliant voice within the house of prayer, And lead unto their God the erring sinners there. I lately mused beside thy peaceful grave, In Auburn's sweet and consecrated shades; 'T was Autumn, and a mellow sunset cast Its trembling smile along the golden woods, And silence waved her tranquillizing wing.

Barrows (32d Mass.), Henry Hartley (1st Mass.), with Christopher Ericson and A. H. Whitaker of the 9th Battery. A great loss was also sustained in Col. Paul J. Revere (20th Mass.), the second grandson killed of the Paul Revere of revolutionary fame, his brother, Dr. E. H. R. Revere, having fallen at Antietam. Memoirs of both are in Harvard Memorial Biographies, I, 124, 219. In Meade's somewhat belated pursuit of Lee, after Gettysburg, several Massachusetts regiments took part. At Auburn, Va. (Oct. 13, 1863), the 10th Mass. Battery (Capt. J. H. Sleeper) received the especial thanks of Major-General Birney (commanding 1st Division, 3d Corps) for their gallantry in repulsing the enemy's attack on the head of the column.

By special order, dated Feb. 12, 1864, the Independent Battalion became 1st Battalion, 4th Mass. Cavalry, and under this organization was ordered to Virginia in May, 1864, and its subsequent history will be found with the 4th Mass. Cavalry. The 1st and 2d Battalions with the army of the Potomac took part in the marches and skirmishes which preceded the battles of Antietam and Fredericksburg. They took active part in the campaigns of 1863-64, a new battalion of four companies joining them at Warrenton, Va., in March, 1864. The regiment was stationed on provost duty at City Point in March, 1865, and served afterward in the defences of Washington until mustered out June 26, 1865. Present also at Poolesville, South Mountain, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancelloreville, Upperville, Gettysburg, Williamsport, Culpeper, Auburn, fortifications of Richmond and Cold Harbor.
