urches, and graveyards, and made familiar to the imagination of thousands of persons who never saw them its river, marshes, and bridges. It adds to the interest of living in any place that famous authors have walked in its streets, and loved its highways and byways, and written of its elms, willows, and chestnuts, its robins and herons. The very names of Cambridge streets remind the dwellers in it of the biographies of Sparks, the sermons of Walker, the law-books of Story, the orations of Everett, and the presidencies of Dunster, Chauncy, Willard, Kirkland, and Quincy. Cambridge is associated in the minds of thousands of Americans with scientific achievements of lasting worth. Here lived Dr. Benjamin Waterhouse, the first Hersey professor of physic, who introduced the kine-pox into America, and John Winthrop, Hollis professor of natural philosophy from 1738 to 1779, one of the very earliest students of the phenomena of earthquakes, the friend and correspondent of Benjamin Franklin
visitor in, and through the halls of which Dr. Holmes, as it was afterwards learned, had in his younger life often walked, if he had not indeed trodden more lively measures there. This house was of quiet dignity, and had for a long time been the home of the family of Judge Fay, wherefore it has since been known as Fay House. Behind it were inclosures in which the venerable Professor Sophocles cared for a collection of hens, for each egg of which he seemed to have a personal interest. Edward Everett had once lived in the building, and Professor McKean had his residence in it during his professorship from 1810 to 1818. It was not known generally then that in the front room in the second story on the north side of the front hall the Reverend Samuel Gilman, a relative of Judge Fay, had written the words of Fair Harvard, to be used on the occasion of the two hundredth anniversary of Harvard College,—words that have been sung at every Commencement since that day. However, this is by the
udacity to venture upon Latin and even Greek in the college classes of the school. It was doubtless such a school as Edward Everett described in his address at the dedication of the Cambridge High School building, June 27, 1848. He remembered as yesterday (Everett was born in Dorchester in 1794) his first going to the village school, how he trudged along at the valiant age of three, one hand grasping his elder sister's apron, and the other his little blue paper-covered primer, and how, when aadside and greet him,—the girls with a courtesy and the boys with a bow. A little reading, writing, and ciphering, added Everett, a very little grammar, and for those destined for college a little Latin and Greek, very indifferently taught, were allstarted under propitious skies. It began in a new building erected for it at the corner of Amory and Summer streets, Edward Everett, president of Harvard College, giving the dedicatory address,—an eloquent and inspiring effort. There were at once o
d anonymously. Among the manuscript rareties are two portfolios of Margaret Fuller's letters and writings, deposited by Col. T. W. Higginson; the Letters given by the English Longfellow Memorial to the Longfellow Memorial Association of Cambridge, with the autographs of eminent Englishmen interested in obtaining the bust of the poet for Westminster Abbey; and the Cambridge Light Infantry Orderly Book of 1815, contributed by Mr. Lucius R. Paige. There are also important manuscripts by Edward Everett, James Russell Lowell, and other authors. This room is also coming to be a museum of souvenirs and relics connected with local history, some of which are of much antiquarian or artistic interest. A large glass case has recently been added for the old regimental flag presented to the library by the 38th regiment of the Massachusetts Volunteer Militia, to whom it was given by Cambridge women in January, 1864. Aside from the contributions to the Memorial Room, the library has had man
lage and town and city. The separation of church and parish took place while the meetinghouse of 1756 was the common home. It was a famous building. Of this house President Quincy wrote: In this edifice all the public Commencements and solemn inaugurations, during more than seventy years, were celebrated; and no building in Massachusetts can compare with it in the number of distinguished men who at different times have been assembled within its walls. The names of Washington, Lafayette, Everett, and others, readily come to mind. The remainder of this part of the story can be briefly told. The First Church, under Dr. Holmes's ministry, worshiped for a time in the old court-house. In December, 1829, Rev. Nehemiah Adams was settled as Dr. Holmes's colleague, and he remained as pastor after Dr. Holmes's resignation in 1831, and until 1834. Meantime the house on Mount Auburn and Holyoke streets was erected. Rev. John A. Albro had a very useful ministry from April, 1835, to April,

Dr. Holmes remained president until his death in 1837, when Joseph Story was put in his place, Dr. Ware still remaining vice-president. Levi Hedge (Ll. D.) was treasurer until 1831, when, on account of ill-health and expected absence from town, he asked to be relieved from the cares of office, and a special meeting was called to choose
Marshall T. Bigelow entered the firm. In 1859 the firm-name was changed to Welch, Bigelow & Co., and as such gained a still wider reputation for skilled book-making. In 1879 John Wilson and Charles E. Wentworth became the proprietors, and largely increased the capacity of the Press by adding to it the well-known establishment of John Wilson & Son. During these years many remarkable books were produced. The productions of Holmes, Sparks, Prescott, Ticknor, Palfrey, Judge Story, Quincy, Everett, Hilliard, Dana, Longfellow, Hawthorne, Whittier, Emerson, Lowell, and many others, first issued from this press, gave evidence of its well-earned reputation for accuracy and scholarship. In 1895 the Press was incorporated under the laws of Massachusetts, with John Wilson as president, and Henry White as treasurer.
