entioned more than once in Lowell's prose and verse. Emerson said once of John Holmes that he represented humor, while his brother, Dr. O. W. Holmes, represented wit; and certainly every page of this Harvard Square chapter is full of the former and rarer quality. Charles Lamb's celebrated description of the Christ Church hospital and school of his boyhood does not give more of the flavor of an older day. Those who refer to that chapter will see at the head a vignette of Harvard Square in 1822, taken from a sketch made at the period. It seems at first sight to have absolutely nothing in common with the Harvard Square of the present day, but to belong rather to some small hamlet of western Massachusetts. Yet it recalls with instantaneous vividness the scenes of my youth, and is the very spot through which Holmes, and Lowell, and Richard Dana, and Story the sculptor, and Margaret Fuller Ossoli, walked daily to the post-office, or weekly to the church. The sketch was taken in the y
in 1813, and is doing an important work in that ward, while other Methodist churches are busily engaged in different parts of the city. The Methodists have recently erected a fine stone meeting-house on Massachusetts Avenue. The first Baptist church was formed in 1817, in Cambridgeport, and it is pursuing its work with vigor in Central Square and out from that centre. Every ward of the city has one or more Baptist churches. The first Universalist church was established in Cambridgeport in 1822, though services under that name had been held in a schoolhouse for some years before. The first pastor was the Rev. Thomas Whittemore, who was widely known in connection with his denomination and in other spheres of activity. The honored and now venerable Dr. L. R. Paige was the efficient minister of this church. Two other churches of this order are doing their work in East Cambridge and North Cambridge. Before the separation of the First Church from the First Parish, but while the contr
