Memoranda.


1Phebe Cousins an acquaintance of mine & a lawyer St. Louis, Mo.

Nauvoo the house built by Aaron Johnson Esq. down by the Mississippi river, next door to the Old Printing office of the Mormons where the Times & Seasons were printed and the Nauvoo Neighbor. In Esquire Johnson’s house little Eugene [H. Harris] was born– and is buried in the graveyard that was just outside the city limits. Esquire Wells lived just at the outskirts or suburbs of Nauvoo. See the Nauvoo Mansion the home of the prophet [p. 206] {p. 56} also the Nauvoo House which was commenced for much the same purpose as the Gardo House in this city.

Inquire for Mrs. Charlotte Fowler Wells, Broadway Office Fowler and Wells of the Phrenological Journal

In Philadelphia ask for Mrs. Martha G. Kimball, Kingsessing Avenue West Philadelphia Pa. No. 4703 Mrs. H. S. Kimball

2When you go to Orange try and go to New Salem North Village– pass down the road I used to go through the Beech Woods [p. 207] {p. 57}

Ask for the Old Vase family place– when you are in North Village and see the ruins of the old house, go to the brook up the stream from the road to the hemlock Grove and pastures beyond, see the old orchard on the North side of the lane next door but one North was the Minister’s house where Mrs. Deborah Curtis lived– go to the schoolhouse and playground

Then to Petersham, where I was born was the Factory Village and the old farm of Grandfather’s was just up a little ways– he owned the factory and his [p. 208] {p. 58} father built it but I expect it is all torn down now– and also the old house at the farm– I think one of Uncle Elisha’s children lives there still– If I were with you I could find the place where I was born but probably that house is torn down now too.

From there you go to Dana burying ground if you can have the opportunity. If Cordelia [Woodward Holden] would go with you to Hardwick she could show you the Old Furnace Village where I used to play when I staid at Lucy’s then in New Braintree where I went to school– [p. 209] {p. 59} and see the old gambrel-roofed house

In Athol Depot or just there lives Mrs. Alzina Babbitt a widow in 1876– her maiden name was Emery–

In Boston see Mrs. Julia Ward Howe & inquire for her eldest son who called on us. Mrs. Nickerson mother in law of Ask for Thomas L. Rogers of the Watchman Tremont Temple
