prcsiftcnt's Ctbircss. 



To the Alembeys of the Comiccticiit Historical Society: 

The year which has just closed (the first year of my Presi- 
dency of this Society) has been made, through the generosity 
of Mr. George E. Hoadley, the most significant year in its 
history. Last year, you will recall that the sum of $20,000 in 
railroad Bonds was given to the Society by one of its mem- 
bers, (whose name was not disclosed at the time — in fact not 
until after his death did the members of the Society generally 
learn that it was Mr. Hoadley who made this gift) to be used 
as a nucleus for a building fund. 

Mr. Hoadley died last fall, and an examination of his will 
disclosed the fact that, after making certain bequests to his 
family, he left the residue of his property to be divided equally 
between Trinity College and our Society, the portion that 
came to us to be added to the fund of which I have already 
spoken. The exact amount that we will obtain from this 
source has not yet been determined, but from the information 
we have, it would seem quite within the possibilities that this 
sum would be sufficient to enable us to proceed with plans for 
the erection of a building at an early date. 

The matters of building, selection of architect, and the 
question of location and of when we should commence opera- 
tions are all of great importance, and each one should receive 
the most careful consideration before a decision is reached. 
If we solve these questions wisely, the results cannot help but 
have a great bearing on the future prosperit}- of our Society. 
If we make serious mistakes, the affect of our general welfare 
will be grave. 

While this gift solves the ver}' important question of a 
building, yet there is still before the Society the necessity of 
increasing its general funds, first, for the very necessary pur- 
pose of increasing the compensation paid to our Librarian and 
of giving him much needed Assistants. It is quite apparent 
to any of those familiar with our work that those who serve 



us do so at a pitifully inadequate compensation, aud that their 
chief reward must be in their sense of work well done. Sec- 
ond, to provide funds for maintenance and purchase of books. 
Our Society has gained in membership during the past year, 
as you will see from the accompanying figures. 
35 elected to membership. 
17 died, 2 of whom were Life Members, and one a 

Corresponding Member. 
We now have: 
479 active members, 34 of whom are Life Members, 

1 Honorary, 

2 Corresponding, 

ig Ex Officio, 2 of whom are also Active Members. 

501 

2 Actives, who are also ex officio. 

499 

The list of names of those who died is as follows: 

Lucius Albert Barbour of Hartford, admitted 1886, 
died November 6, 1922. 

Joseph Olcott Goodwin of East Hartford, admitted 
1887, died March 7, 1923. 

William Hamilton Champlin of Hartford, admitted 
1890, died September 29, 1922. 

Morgan Gardner Bulkeley of Hartford, Life Member, 
admitted 1894, died November 6, 1922. 

Charles Lewis Nichols Camp of New Haven, admit- 
ted 1898, died August 11, 1922. 

Rev. James Gammack of West Hartford, admitted 1900, 
died February 17, 1923. 

George Edward Hoadley of West Hartford, Life 
Member, admitted 1901, died November 21, 1922. 

Mrs. Emily S. Goodwin Holcombe of Hartford, ad- 
mitted 1902, died March 28, 1923. 

Normand Francis Allen of Hartford, admitted 1902, 
died May 30, 1922. 

Rev. Myron Andrews Munson of New Haven, admit- 
ted 1905, died October 30, 1922. 



Charles Eben Jackson of Middletown, admitted in 

1892, died May 9, 1923. 
Kdward W. Morley of West Hartford, admitted 1907, 

died February 24, 1923. 
Lewis Sperry of East Windsor Hill, admitted 1907, died 

June 22, 1922. 
Ella Danforth of Hartford, admitted 1907, died 

May 16, 1923. 
Mrs. Sara Thomson Kinney of Hartford, admitted 

igi6, died December 14, 1922. 
Rear Admiral Harry Shepard Knapp of Hartford, 

admitted 1922, died April 16, 1923. 
Henry Phelps Johnston of New York City and Had- 

l3-me, Connecticut, a Corresponding Member, admit- 
ted 1887, died Februar}- 28, 1923. 

One has but to pause a moment and reflect on this list of 
names to realize that it will be impossible to replace them, and 
that no increase in membership will make up to the Society 
the loss it has suffered the past year by the death of those 
whose names I have read. It is impossible to single out any 
one of them, as they have all been distinguished in their va- 
rious fields of endeavor, and have brought great credit and 
honor to the Society by reason of their membership in it. 

Our papers during the year have been as follows: 

October 3, Henry W. Erving, "Some Random Notes on 

Old Furniture." 
November 14, Charles Hopkins Clark, "Ezra Stiles, 

President of Yale." 
December 5, Rev. Rem.sen B. Ogilby, "The Early Trade 

Routes in the Pacific Ocean." 
Januar}' 2, Forrest Morgan, "Yarns of American 

Discovery." 
Februar}- 6, Arthur E. Shipman, " Hartford and the 

Lincoln-Douglas debates." 
March 6, Leverett Belknap, "Main Street, Hartford, 

from Pearl to Asylum, and the bookstore on the 

corner." 



April 3, Maynard T. Hazeu, " Talk on India, illustrated." 
May I, F. Clarence Bissell, "Some unpublished letters 
of a Connecticut Loyalist." 

These papers have been of peculiar interest and the meet- 
ings well attended as a result of the careful work of our 
Program Committee, for which I wish to thank them in behalf 
of the Society. 

In addition to the bequest in the Hoadley will, we have 
received $500 from the Estate of the Hon. E. Stevens Henry, 
long a Vice-President of the Society. Remembrances of this 
sort are peculiarly welcome as an evidence of the interest in 
our society by those connected with it. 

Your Officers appeared before the General Assembl)^ during 
the present ses.sion and advocated an Amendment to our Act 
of Incorporation allowing the Society to hold property to the 
value of $750,000.00. The bill was passed and has been 
signed by the Governor, and our Incorporation Act amended 
accordingly. It was very important that this amendment be 
secured owing to the fact that the bequest from the Hoadley 
Estate would undoubtedly have brought the value of our 
property to a sum in excess of that which we were allowed to 
hold by our charter before this amendment. 

The great need for additional room for books and for tem- 
porary additions at least to our shelving, which has been 
called to your attention by my predecessors, is presented in a 
different light this year owing to the possibility that we may 
have our own building within the near future. If this is to 
be so, it seems to me we can well afford to put up for a few 
years longer with the inconveniences which we are now suffer- 
ing in the hopes that these defects will be rectified and this 
problem solved permanently when we have our own home. 

I must urge upon the Society the necessity for a continu- 
ance of the campaign for members, as the new conditions that 
have ari.sen will of necessity impose greater expenses upon our 
Society, and at the same time give us larger opportunit}' to 
expand and to di.splay our collections in a much more satisfac- 
tory manner than we have been able to do in our present 
limited quarters. If every member would bear this in mind 
and endeavor to interest his friends in joining the Society, the 
result would be surprising to us all by its magnitude. 



13 

In conclusion it should be kept clearly in mind that the 
successes of this year have been due to two factors, first, the 
loyal and devoted service of our Librarian and his Assistants, 
and of the conunittees who have had charge of the affairs of 
the Society; and secondly, to the impetus given to our activi- 
ties by my predecessor, Dr. G. C. F. Williams. It is the duty 
of those of us to whom the affairs of the Society are now 
entrusted to carry on the work on the .sound, progressive 
policies that he inaugurated.

^librarian's Kcport. 



Mr. President and Members of the Society: 

The report of your librarian for the year now closing offers 
little that is unusual or startling. The work of the library 
has progressed along the accustomed lines; there have been 
some additions of especial interest, and about the usual num- 
ber of persons have sought information from its shelves. The 
amount of general work which should be done in the library 
increases steadily from year to year and cannot under present 
conditions be kept up as it should be. The cataloguing especi- 
ally falls further and further behind. With the aid of Miss 
Ellis during certain hours the regular correspondence has been 
fairly well kept up; except in the matter of genealogical en- 
([uiries, which have for the most part been passed along to 
persons wlio make a business of research in that field. Several 
advantageous opportunities and a tendency towards lower 
prices have occasioned larger purchases during the year than 
is usual. Both your librarian and the library labor under a 
continual and increasing handicap by reason of the crowded 
condition of our rooms, a condition which must soon be 
remedied if we are to continue to serve either our own mem- 
bers or the general public. 

The twentieth volume of our series of "Collections," which 
was noted in my last report as being in press, has been com- 
pleted and a few copies have been received from the binder. 
The remainder of the edition is expected to be finished in a 
few days. This volume consists of "Huntington Papers," 
being the correspondence during the period of the Revolution 
of the brothers General Jedediah Huntington and Colonel 
Joshua Huntington, both of Norwich, Conn., with a few let- 
ters between other members of the family. In form it is a 
cloth bound octavo volume of 524 pages; and it is believed 
that the correspondence which it contains will prove of much 
interest. The usual "annual report" of the doings of the 



15 

Society for the year ending May, 1922, was issued in July. 
It forms a pamphlet of 49 pages. 

The early papers and correspondence of the Wyllys family 
of Hartford, offered to us for publication by Lemuel A. Welles, 
Esq., as was noted in my last report, are now copied and the 
cop\^ compared with the original documents. Mr. Welles has 
prepared a .sketch of Gov. George Wyllys and .some important 
explanatory notes to accompany them. As soon as further 
notes can be prepared the copy will be ready for printing; and 
it is expected that it will be placed in the printer's hands late 
in the summer, to be i.ssued as the twenty-first volume of our 
" Collections." 

The number of readers, while somewhat less than that for 
the two previous years, owing perhaps to the .severe winter is 
fully up to the average for several years past; being 2,874. 

The accessions of printed material, together with a few 
miscellaneous objects, during the year are as follows: by gift 
749 volumes, 355 pamphlets and 123 miscellaneous; by pur- 
chase, including books credited to special funds, 166 volumes, 
124 pamphlets and 33 miscellaneous; by exchange 41 volumes 
and II pamphlets. These make a total of 856 volumes, 490 
pamphlets and 156 mi.scellaneous; or a grand total'of 1,502 
items. In addition to these are the manuscripts, which will 
be noted presently, al.so a number of accessions which can 
only be listed as lots. Among the.se are more than 1,650 
early bills of credit (not counting duplicates) presented by 
George E. Hoadley, a number of bills presented by Edwin P. 
Taylor and the collection of watch movements presented in 
the name of Charles Townley Martin. 

The manuscripts acquired during the year and the sources 
from which they were received are as follows:

The foremost event of the year iu the work of the library 
was the acqtiiring of the maiuiscript genealogical librarj' of 
our late member, Charles Lewis Nichols Camp of New Haven. 
For this collection of manti.scripts we are indebted to a num- 
ber of members and friends who subscribed on behalf of the 
Society the amount necessary for its purchase. The names of 



IS 

these subscribers, arranged according to the amount of their 
subscriptions, are: 

Morgan B. Brainard, Society of Colonial Wars in the State 
of Connecticut, Mabel C. Tuller; 

Walter H. Clark, Carl Stoeckel; 

D. Newton Barney, Clarence W. Bowen, John I. H. Downs, 
Arthur R. Kimball, Francis T. Maxwell, Gustave R. Sattig, 
George Dudley Seymour; 

William F. Hopson; 

Albert C. Bates; 

Alice M. Gay, Frank B. Gay, Andrew Keogh; 

F. Clarence Bissell, George S. Godard. 

Mr. Camp had been for twenty-four years a member of this 
Society, and it is believed by his nearest friends that the acqui- 
sition of these his treasures by the Connecticut Historical 
Society would have met with his approval, could he have had 
any voice in the matter of their disposal. The largest and 
most important section of this manuscript library is that of 
genealogical data on individual family surnames. Following 
Mr. Camp's plan of arrangement, many of the larger families 
are separated into branches, each branch being usually desig- 
nated by the given name of the inunigrant or earliest known 
settler, the place of his residence, and often a distinguishing 
letter or figure for identification. In cases where there is very 
little data on the families, a numl)er have been placed together, 
as was done by him, and listed under the first letter or first 
two letters of the names; otherwise the arrangement is alpha- 
betical. The prospective user of this collection nuist not 
expect to find under each surname a full and complete gene- 
alogy of that family. It would have been impossible to do 
this with the more than 1,500 families which make up the 
collection; and such was not Mr. Camp's object or purpose 
when gathering the data. It consists rather of such material 
as he as a genealogist desired for his immediate or possible 
future use and reference. Much of the data is copied from 
printed books; but is here arranged and enlarged by the addi- 
tion of further data gathered from numerous unpublished 
records and private .sources of information. The material on 
a family may be contained on a single page, or it ma}', as in 
the case of the Smith famil\- with its almost forty branches. 



10 

cover more than 500 pages. Probably the average for a family 
is from ten to twenty-five pages, each seven by eight and one 
half inches in size. The data on about one third of the 
families is very slight, consisting of only from one to perhaps 
five pages of manuscript. Following these genealogies of 
American families of English ancestry are genealogies of 
twenty-two of Dutch ancestry accompanied by a few copies of 
Dutch records. The collection also contains carefully worked 
out ancestral pedigrees of about 350 individuals, which of 
course run back into thousands of different family names. 
Many of these are likely to prove of interest to persons seek- 
ing their ancestral lines. There are also a few original family 
records removed from old Bibles. Following these there are 
about thirty foreign genealogies and pedigrees, chiefly of royal 
and titled families and lines. The majority of these are quite 
extensive. Copies of and extracts from town, church and 
cemetery records in more than fifty towns, nearly all of them 
in Connecticut, are in the collection. Some of these records 
are quite extensive while others are short extracts only. There 
is also some miscellaneous data which cannot be described in 
general terms and a quantity of genealogical correspondence. 
The importance of this Camp collection to the Society can 
scarcely be overestimated; and the frequency with which it is 
used has already fully justified the effort made to secure it. 
A carefully prepared list of the genealogies, pedigrees and 
records which comprise this collection has been made. Such 
a list is too long to be printed here; but both list and manu- 
scripts are available for reference and study at the library. 

A similar reference list of the family pedigrees and copies 
of records comprising the Donald Lines Jacobus collection has 
been prepared. So that a knowledge of the treasures in this 
collection, relating particularly to New Haven County, is now 
more easily available. 

Through the generosity of the Misses Beach of West Hart- 
ford and Morgan B. Brainard, our president, the Society has 
acquired the original manuscript muster, paj- and receipt rolls, 
about five hundred in numljer, of the Connecticut militia serv- 
ing in the War of 181 2. The greater part, perhaps all of the 
names which appear on these rolls have already been printed 
in the volume of "Connecticut Military Record, 1775-1848," 
issued by the state in 1S89; where they were copied from 



the rosters in the office of the Adjutant-General at Wash- 
ington. As there printed they are arranged in one alphabeti- 
cal list, and not b\^ companies and regiments. Whether these 
original rolls contain any names additional to those alreadj^ 
in print is not now known, and can only be ascertained by 
careful comparison of all of them with the printed roster. 
Even if they do not contain additional names, the return of 
these original manuscript rolls to Connecticut and their acqui- 
sition by this Society is a matter for congratulation. Many 
of the receipt rolls contain the autograph signatures of the 
men. Accompanying the original rolls is a volume contain- 
ing an apparently carefully made copy of them, made per- 
haps fifty to seventy-five years ago, to which an index of the 
names has been added. 

Miss Caroline M. Hewdns, librarian of the Hartford Public 
Library, has presented to the Society the large collection of 
"annuals" and similar gift books which she has gathered 
during many years of collecting. They number above 250 
volumes besides a few duplicates, and include several sets 
published for a number of years. While the majority of them 
are American, some of them are English publications. The 
vogue of the annual has passed; but the books are to-day of 
much interest and some of them are not without commercial 
value. The period covered by them began about a century 
ago and ended not far from i860. The earliest in this col- 
lection is of 1827, and the latest 1859. Among their contents 
may be found the first appearance of the earlier writings of 
many famous authors, numerous poems by the favorite writers 
of the day and choice bits of literature by authors whose 
names are now rarely heard. Most of the issues are embel- 
lished with the choicest examples of engravings b}' the fore- 
most artists of the time. The bindings, also, are finished 
examples of the taste of the time, with the covers usually 
embossed either "blind" or in gilt with designs of flowers 
or arabesques. As a whole these books represented the best 
in both the literature and art of their period. Not a few of 
these volumes were edited by Hartford residents or published 
in Hartford; while many contain poems or prose sketches by 
Connecticut authors. 

Our late member and most generous friend of the Society, 
Mr. George E. Hoadley, presented us not long before his 



death with the volumes, some 375 iu all, which comprised the 
remainder of the editions of the two volumes of Records of 
the Colony of New Haven and the Records of the Colony of 
Connecticut, volumes four to fifteen, both edited by his dis- 
tinguished brother, the late Charles J. Hoadly, LL. D. Pro- 
ceeds from the sale of these volumes will be added, respec- 
tively, to the building fund established by Mr. Hoadley and 
to the Charles J. Hoadly fund, also established by him in 
memory of his brother. To this latter fund will also be 
added the proceeds from the sale of copies of the Records of 
the State of Connecticut, volume three, the publication of 
wdiich by Mr. Hoadley was noted in my last report, and which 
he later presented to the Society. 

Mr. Hoadley also presented us with a wonderfully complete 
and choice collection of early American colonial, continental 
and state bills, together with Confederate and miscellaneous 
bills of more recent date, as follows: 

Continental bills, 1775-1780, including (23) state bills, (2) lottery tick- 
ets, (5) bills of e.xchange, etc. (185). 

Connecticut bills, 1709-1792, including (2) reprints, (14) notes, (53) 
treasury and pay-table notes (246). 

Delaware bills, 1746-1777 (47). 

Georgia bills, 1 749-1786 (45). 

Maryland bills, about 1 767-1780 (71). 

Massachusetts bills, 1690-1786, including one reproduction, one 
printed on leather and (12) notes (73). 

New Hampshire bills, 1737-17S0, including (22) probable reprints (38). 

Xew Jersey bills, 1756-1786 (89). 

New York bills, 1709-1776, including one facsimile (47). 

North Carolina bills, 1748-1780 (50). 

Pennsylvania bills, 1755-1789 (190). 

Rhode Island bills, 1715-1786, including (4) reprints (46). 

South Carolina bills, 1735-1784 (50). 

Vermont bills, 1781 (4). 

Confederate States bills (128). 

Confederate States bonds and loan certificates (22). 

Confederate state bills; (15) Alabama, (2) Florida, (27) Georgia, (3) 
Louisiana, (17) North Carolina, (6) Virginia (70). 

Miscellaneous bills of cities, corporations, etc. (119). 

Assignats of the first French republic (18). 

Bills of other foreign countries (15). 

A considerable number of duplicate Continental and Connecticut 
bills, with a few of other states. 

Miss Lucy A. Brainard, the first lady to be admitted to our 
membership, appreciating the need of the Society for more 



funds for the purchase of books, established the book fund 
which now bears her name b}^ a modest and at the time anony- 
mous gift in 1892. Later on several occasions she increased 
the fund by cash gifts, and only a few days previous to her 
death she presented the Society with a number of sets of her 
recently issued three volume Genealog}' of the Brainerd- 
Brainard Family, with the condition that the proceeds from 
the sale of these books should be added to the principal of 
the fund. During the past year her nephews, Morgan B. 
Brainard and Hon. Newton C. Brainard, have presented us, 
under the same condition, with the remaining unsold copies 
of the genealogy, several hundred volumes in all. This 
splendid gift will eventually greatly increase the ' ' lyucy A. 
Brainard Book Fund," which has already grown from its 
original one hundred to above thirteen hundred dollars. 

The following family genealogies have been added to the 
library during the year: Atwater, Bailey, Barbour, Bell, Ben- 
son, Bowler, Brown, Burton-Robinson, Burwell, Carpenter, 
Chipman, Christopher, Clemens, Dayton, Dimock, Ellery, 
Emmerton, Fowler, Fr^-e, Gednej'-Clark, Gladding, Gove, 
Griswold- Crane- Russell, Grout, Hewes, Kingman, Kinne, 
Lines, North, Parlin, Pearson, Pettingill, Presbrey, Reynolds, 
Robins, Ryder, Shed, Smith (2), Spencer, Stimpson, Stowell, 
Thurston, Tingley, Woodbury. 

A weekly newspaper named the ' ' Connecticut Centinel ' ' 
was published in Norwich during the years 1802 to 1807. 
Copies of this paper appear to be rare, and only eight issues 
later than July, 1804, were known to exist. This Society 
has recently acquired 67 issues dated from Jan. i, 1805, to 
Oct. 27, 1807. Another series of newspapers, issued in Mid- 
dletown, has been acquired, as follows: "The Oasis," vols. 
1-3, 1850-1852; "The Rainbow," vols. 4-7, 1853-1855, and 
scattering numbers of vols. S-ii; "The Middlesex County 
Democrat," scattering numbers of vol. i, i860; "The Mid- 
dletown Democrat," scattering numbers of vol. 11, 1861. 

With income from the Charles J. Hoadly fund we have pur- 
chased the Life of Jonathan Trumbull written by his great- 
grandson of the same name; The Friendly Club, a series of 
delightfully written es.saNS by Col. Francis Par.sons; History 
of Westfield, Mass., in two volumes, by J. H. Lockwood, and 
Rev. John Davenport's Knowledge of Christ, London, 1653, 



slightly imperfect. The Gove and Shed genealogies were 
purchased with the income from the William P\ J. Boardman 
fund. With income from the Dr. Gurdon W. Russell book 
fund a subscription was entered for the New Haven Gene- 
alogical Magazine, published by Donald Lines Jacobus. The 
first three numbers, containing families of ancient Xew Haven 
from A^bbot to Benham have been received. 

Among other publications of Connecticut interest which 
have been added to the library are Observations on remarks 
on Dr. Gales' letter by Eliphalet Dyer, Hartford, [1769], 
issued anonymously by Benjamin Gale; the Orderly book of 
Lieut. Abraham Chittenden, Aug. 16 to Sept. 29, 1776, pub- 
lished b}' Hon. Newton C. Brainard; a revised edition of E. B. 
Sanford's History of Connecticut; Charles R. Stark's History 
of Groton; Judd's Almanacks for 1786 and 1788, printed in 
Litchfield, the earlier of the two being, so far as can be ascer- 
tained, an unique copy. Other books of interest include 
Beaumarchais and the war of American independence, in two 
volumes, presented by the author, Elizabeth S. Kite; Publi- 
cations of the Florida Historical Societ}', volume I, a beau- 
tiful specimen of printing; Loubat's Medallic history of the 
United States in two volumes, presented b}- Columbia Univer- 
sity; Broadsides, ballads, etc., printed in Massachusetts, 1639-. 
1800, a most interesting piece of bibliography, compiled by 
Worthington C. Ford and published and presented by the 
Massachusetts Historical Society; seven volumes of the pub- 
lications of the Naval History Society. 

From Mrs. Benjamin Knower of New York and Hartford 
we received a handsome portrait of the famous Indian chief 
Red Jacket, painted by William J. Wilgus (1819-1853) of 
Buffalo, N. Y. Mr. W. J. Wilgus of New York, nephew and 
namesake of the artist, became interested in this picture and 
had it cleaned and varnished. He, however, is convinced that 
it is not a portrait of Red Jacket, but of the Onondaga chief 
Captain Cole. 

The Hartford Printing Company (Elihu Geer Sons) have 
made their annual donation of directories of different cities, 
134 volumes this year. These old directories are frequently 
consulted and constitute a valuable section of the library. 

From Miss Mary E. Hastings of Hartford, great-great- 
grandaughter of John Lawrence, long the treasurer of the 



Colony and State of Connecticut, we have received a number 
of interesting and historical articles, in addition to the manu- 
scripts noted elsewhere in this report. Among these is a small 
rectangular seventeenth century table with curved diagonal 
stretchers and one drawer that belonged to the Chenevard 
family; a small round topped stand, with three feet, that be- 
longed to Treasurer Lawrence; an arm chair with five trian- 
gular spindles in the back and embossed Spanish leather seat 
that belonged in the L^awrence family, probably to William 
the son of Treasurer John; other articles include a small iron 
skillet and two Canton china plates with red, blue and gilt 
flower decorations that belonged to Treasurer Lawrence and a 
blue figured fireplace tile from his house; also "Hector's 
Tomb," an embroidered piece wrought by Sarah Lawrence, 
several pieces of hand woven linen, and a pencil sketch of 
William Lawrence by T. H. Went worth. 

Carrying out the expressed wishes of our former life mem- 
ber, the late Charles Townley Martin of Hartford, Mrs. Martin 
has recently presented us in his name with the collection of 
watches, or rather watch movements, for onl}' a few of them 
have cases, which were gathered by Mr. Martin and in which 
he took great interest. This collection affords excellent oppor- 
tunity for the study of watches and the numerous varieties 
and forms used in their manufacture by different watchmakers 
and at different times. The more than three hundred speci- 
mens of which it consists include examples made in different 
sections of the British Isles and in Switzerland and other 
countries of continental Europe; also examples of the work of 
American watchmakers. The last two centuries is the period 
covered by the watches in the collection. The whole collec- 
tion has been listed or catalogued in Mr. Martin's careful, 
methodical and pains- taking manner. 

From the same source was received a collection of pamph- 
lets, broadsides, circulars, leaflets and clippings, with a few 
manuscripts and letters, relating to the endeavor of American 
claimants, about forty years ago, to prove title to a Lawrence- 
Chase-Townley estate in England, through a supposed de- 
scendant who had formerly lived in Canterbury, Conn. 

As your librarian looks back upon his thirty-four years of 
membership in and thirty-one years of work for this Society 
he is forcibly reminded of the changes that time brings. 



There are now only twelve who have been members of the 
Society as long or longer than himself. Members and readers 
alike come to our rooms for a time; at first they are full of 
enthusiasm, soon their steps lag somewhat, then they cease 
to come and pass into history. Their books, manuscripts or 
other collections pass into other and often unappreciative 
hands and are too frequently scattered or destroyed. Why 
do they not arrange while yet they may to have their col- 
lections, which often are the joy of their lives, pass into the 
custody of an institution such as this Societ}', where they will 
be permanently preserved and will also be a lasting memorial 
to their gatherer and donor. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Albert C. Bates, Librarian.

To the Members of the Connecticut Historical Society: 

M}- report of last 3'ear made mention of the gift to this 
Society by the will of our late deceased life member George 
Edward Hoadley of one half of his residuary estate, for the 
purpose of erecting a fire-proof building for the Society. At 
that time it was known onh' that this would be a considerable 
sum; but the amount was unknown. The settlement of the 
estate revealed that the sum was larger than had been antici- 
pated. A distribution of the estate was made on December 
nineteenth and there was set off to the Society securities and 
cash valued at $252,784.73. In addition the Society received 
a number of historical pamphlets and a quantity of manu- 
scripts and autograph letters which had been appraised at 
$5,021.00. A statement in some detail regarding these manu- 
scripts will appear in the report of the Librarian. 

This munificent bequest from Mr. Hoadley with nearly 
$20,000.00 which he had given the Society for the same 
purpose previous to his death, together with the accumula- 
tions of income on the fund, will, it is hoped, enable the 
Society to proceed with the erection of a building as soon as 
arrangements and plans for the work can be made. Such an 
undertaking as this requires the most careful consideration, 
that mistakes may be avoided both in the location and the 
planning of the building. A committee has been appointed 
"to consider the problem of a stiitable building to be erected 
from the proceeds of the Hoadley Fund"; but as 3-et suffi- 
cient study has not been given to the problem to warrant a 
report from that committee. That a building is very much 
needed is known to all who are familiar with the Society, 
while others need only to view the crowded condition of our 
rooms to assure themselves of such need. 

Under the will of Dr. William Ward Knight of Hartford, 
a member of the Society for twenty-nine years, whose death 
occurred last December, the Society receives a legacy of 



$7.ooo-oo- This legacy is, however, subject to a life use, 
and is not expected to become available to the Society for 
a considerable number of years. 

It is to be hoped that in the near future others will re- 
member the Society either b\' direct gift or by inclusion in 
their wills, as with the occupancy of a new building and 
larger quarters, the general expenses of administration will 
be enormously increased. 

It is a matter on which the vSociety is to be congratulated 
tliat we have received as a gift from one of our officers. 
Gen. lyucius B. Barbour, of Hartford, all of the remaining 
unsold copies of that valuable work, Manwarings abstracts of 
the Probate Records of Hartford District from 1635 to 1750. 

It is to be regretted that there have been delays in printing 
the volume of our Collections which is to contain the Wyllys 
family papers, so that it is not yet published. Meanwhile 
other copy has been prepared, so that it is hoped the publi- 
cation of a volume to be paid for from our Ancient Vital 
Records Fund may soon be undertaken. 

At our monthly meetings during the year the following 
interesting papers have been read: 

Robert J. Burdette and his contemporaries; a builder's esti- 
mate, by Hon. Charles C. Cook, at the October 
meeting. 

Racial distribution of the settlers of the colonies before the 
Revolutionary War, by Professor William B. Bailey, at 
the November meeting. 

French traits, by Professor Henry A. Perkins, at the De- 
cember meeting. 

Shakespeare personally, by Dr. Allan D. Risteen, at the Janu- 
ary meeting. 

Some notes on wampum, by Edwin Stanley Welles, at the 
February meeting. 

The early histor}^ of Pemaquid, by Lewis W. Allen, at the 
March meeting. 

Egypt, by Clifton E. Sherman, at the April meeting. 

Some first editions of American authors, by Dr. George C. 
F. Williams, at the May meeting. This paper was 
illu.strated by the exhibition of numerous examples of 
rare first editions from Dr. Williams' own library. 



Death has taken its toll of our members and we record the 
loss of the following: 

Rev. Francis Goodwin of Hartford, admitted December 
1876, died October 5, 1923. 

Forrest Morgan of Hartford, admitted May 1886, died 
February 24, 1924.

Lyman Allyn Upson of Thompsonville, admitted July

Dr. William Ward Knight of Hartford, admitted De- 
cember 4, 1894, died December 4, 1923. 

Lawrence Van Alstyne of Sharon, a life member, ad-

Forty-four new members have been elected during the year 
and three have been added to the ex-officio list. There have 
been 20 deaths, including three life members and two ex- 
ofhcio members. Four members have resigned, and the names 
of a few have been dropped from the roll. The present mem- 
bership consists of 498 active, of whom 31 are members for 
life, 20 ex-oflficio, one of whom is also an active member, one 
honorary and two corresponding; a total membership of 520, 
the largest in the history of the Societ}-. 

One year from this month marks the centennial of the 
organization of this Society in May 1825. While there have 
been some handicaps in its work and some periods when its 
activities have been much curtailed, its career as a whole has 
been one that is worthy of the state which it represents. 
Does it not seem that some special note of this centennial 
should be made, perhaps by a public meeting at which repre- 
sentatives of other similar societies might join with us in a 
recognition of the event, or by an address outlining the his- 
tory, growth and activities of the Society during its first cen- 
tury with a hopeful glimpse into its second century ? 

The report up to this point has been prepared for me by 
the librarian, at my request. No report would be complete, 
however, without a mention by the President of the debt 
owed by the Society to Mr. Bates for the devoted service he 
has given to it. It is not too nnich to state that the position 
which our library holds is, in my judgment, due as much to 
the knowledge and learning of our librarian as it is to the 
books which it contains. 



It is, of course, known to all of you that the funds of the 
Society have never permitted an adequate compensation to be 
paid to those who have ser\-ed it so faithfully and efficiently, 
and it is by calling this situation to 3'our attention each year 
that I hope that some day our funds will be sufficiently en- 
larged to enable us to feel that those who are in our employ 
do not remain so at a considerable personal sacrifice. 

At this time I wish to call the attention of our members 
to the resignation of John Felt Morris, members of whose 
family have been treasurers of this Societj" for the past fort\-- 
nine years, including Mr. Morris' own term. Such records 
as this remind us that this loyal spirit which has led one 
family to give us so freely of their time and thought for so 
long a period is one of the fundamental reasons for the posi- 
tion now held by the Society. 

I would repeat what I have said in the earlier part of this 
report with regard to the problem that confronts the Society 
in connection with its new building. The sum that Mr. 
Hoadle)' left us is a handsome one, and yet, unless it is 
handled with the greatest care, it will not provide adequatel)' 
for future growth combined with the beauty of structure that 
should perpetuate a gift of this character. One cannot, of 
course, forecast the future with any feeling of confidence, 
but my own judgment is that this problem of construction is 
not one that will have to be solved by your officers during 
their present term of office. 

In closing let me express the hope that my associate oflScers 
and the committees of the Society will work as earnestly and 
as efficiently this coming year as they have the past, so that 
at its close we may review it in our minds and feel that the 
Society has progressed during our term of office. 

Morgan B. Braixard, 

President.

Mr. President and Members of the Society: 

The year now closing has been, in one way at least, the 
most important since the organization and incorporation of 
the Society. For during this year we have received from 
the estate of our former life member, Mr. George E. Hoadley, 
the bequest made by him to the vSociety for the purpose of 
erecting a fireproof building. With the erection of a com- 
modious building to house our library and miscellaneous col- 
lections, and with some further increase of our funds for 
general expenses of maintenance, our books can be better 
arranged and made more accessible than they now are, many 
can be placed on the shelves which are now packed away 
where they cannot be consulted, our historical and genealogi- 
cal manuscripts can be better arranged and cared for and our 
paintings and various historical relics can be displayed to 
better advantage. Provision will doubtless also be made for 
the display of collections of the stone implements and other 
relics of our local Indians. The possibilities for increased 
work, for greater usefulness and for a wider field of activi- 
ties by the Society appear very great, when once the handi- 
cap of cramped quarters shall have been removed. 

The total number of readers for the year is 3,304, exceed- 
ing the number for the last year by fifteen per cent. 

The number of accessions, other than manuscripts, during 
the year is thirty-three per cent, greater than last year. Of 
these the number received by gift is eight per cent, above 
last year; the total of volumes being less and of pamphlets 
and miscellaneous items more than last year. The purchases, 
due to some unusual opportunities that have occurred, are 
more than double those of la.st year and include items of 
more than ordinary interest. A detailed account of the acces- 
sions is as follows: by gift, 423 volumes, 537 pamphlets and 
361 miscellaneous; by purchase, including 21 volumes and 
one pamphlet credited to special funds, 332 volumes, 244 



15 

pamphlets and 132 miscellaneous; by exchange, two volumes, 
23 pamphlets and one miscellaneous. These make a total of 
759 volumes, 804 pamphlets and 494 miscellaneous; or a 
grand total of 2,055 items. 

The Society's unrivalled collection of eighteenth century 
Connecticut imprints, in which your librarian takes much 
interest, has been increased during the year by the addition 
of 18 books and pamphlets printed in 1782, '84, '86, '89, '91, 
'92, '93. '94 (2), '95 (2), '96 (2), '97 (4), '99; and four 
broadsides of 1776, '91 (2), '92. 

Genealogies of the following families have been added to 
the library during the year: Allis, Ayars(2), Bancroft, Beach, 
Bicknell, Boardman, Brondson & Box, Bulkeley (to replace 
a copy stolen some years ago), Burritt, Gary (2), Davis, 
Denison, Dixon, Dolbeare, Fairfax, Fulton-Hayden-Warner, 
Gage, Geer, Grant Association, Gregg, Griffing, Hakes, 
Harris, Hendrick, Herkimer & Schuyler, Hill, Holcomb, 
Johnson, Kasson, Kelley, Lincoln, Lippincott (2), Loomis, 
Lunt, Lyman-Clapp, MacLean, Magoun, Meech, Mott, 
Nelson, Newcomb, Nichols, Northrup, Olmsted, Parker- 
Ruggles, Prouty, Rascob Green, Rich, Richardson, Richelieu, 
Sage & Slocum, Sanders, Sebor, Sherman, Spear, Spicer, 
Sprague, Stafford, Stokes, Strassberger, Stratton, Swan-Far- 
well, Towushend, Tracy, Travers, Webb, Whiting. 

Undoubtedly the printed item of the greatest historical in- 
terest acquired during the year is the broadside proclamation 
issued by Gov. Jonathan Trumbull June 18, 1776, which is 
usually spoken of as Connecticut's Declaration of Independ- 
ence; but which at the time of its adoption by the General 
Assembly was designated as a " Proclamation for Reforma- 
tion, &c." This proclaniatiou, which is one of less than 
half a dozen known copies, was presented by our president 
Morgan B. Brainard and had belonged to our former vice- 
president James Terry. A handsome gift received from Wal- 
lace Nutting is a copy of his book, "Connecticut Beautiful," 
which he dedicated to the Society. From Mr. Hoadley's 
estate we secured the unique copy of the first printing of 
Rev. and Dr. Gershom Bulkeley 's history of the Colony en- 
titled "Will and Doom, Or the Miseries of Connecticut by 
and under an Usurped and Arbitrary Power," written in 1692 



but not printed until 1875, when it was to form a part of the 
third volume of the Collections of this Society. Before it 
was issued the whole edition of the Will and Doom with the 
exception of this copy was destro3^ed by fire. The volume 
was finally issued b}' this Society twenty years later, and 
accompanying this unique copy is one of the twenty-five 
separately printed copies of the 1895 edition. Other books 
of interest include the L,ogs of the Serapis, Alliance and 
Ariel under John Paul Jones, completing our set of the pub- 
lications of the Naval History Society; two volumes of the 
Victoria History of the Counties of England, the gift of our 
late vice-president James J. Goodwin; Pirates of the New 
England coast by Dow and Edmonds; a number of Charles- 
ton, S. C, Year books; four bound volumes of pamphlets 
giving centennials of New Hampshire towns; four large scrap 
books relating to Wethersfield, arranged by our late member 
William F. J. Boardman; the Westmoreland probate records, 
printed by the Wyoming Historical and Geological Society; 
Journal of a tour to and residence in New Connecticut in 
1820 and 1821 by Dr. Zerah Hawley of Farmiugton; Church 
records of Plymouth, Mass., vol. 2; Letters of members of the 
Continental Congress, vol. 2, July, 1776, to December, 1777, 
which includes copies from original letters in the Society's 
possession; Pennsylvania Act of 1799 against Connecticut 
claimants; catalogue of New England diaries from 1602 to 
to iSoo; the Memorial of Pedro Menendez de Aviles, Gov- 
ernor of Florida, issued by the Florida State Historical 
Society, a volume which delighted our late member Forrest 
/ Morgan; Records of the Colony of New Plymouth, 12 vols.; 
Acts and Resolves of Massachusetts Bay, 8 vols. ; reprints of 
the Colonial laws of Massachusetts of 1660 and 1672; one of 
the twenty copies separately issued of the 1858 reprint of 
New Havens vSettling in New England, London, 1656; Sibley's 
Harvard graduates; Hough's Lewis county, N. Y. ; Old- 
mixon's British Empire in America, London, 1708, 2 vols.; 
Knapp's Maumee Valley, O.; Authentic journal of the siege 
of Havana, London, 1762; Plain narrative of the reduction 
of Manilla in 1762; Hollister's Lackawanna Valley, N. Y. ; 
Psalter or Psalmes of David, New London, 1795; Vade mecura 
for America, Boston, 1732. 



It is a pleasure to note the publication of the second and 
final volume of New Haven Vital Records; also of a small 
but useful Tourists guide to Connecticut, issued by the Mat- 
tatuck Historical Societ}-. The first volume of Families of 
Ancient New Haven (New Haven Genealogical Magazine) 
by Donald Lines Jacobus has been completed and two of the 
four numbers of volume two issued. 

An item of much historical interest is the discovery and 
announcement by our member L,uke Vincent Lockwood that 
Nicholas Desbrowe of Hartford was the maker of the so-called 
"Connecticut chests," now so highly prized by collectors of 
early New England furniture. 

The annual donation of directories of different towns and 
cities by the Hartford Printing Company (Elihu Geer Sons) 
was larger this year than usual, amounting to almost 200 
volumes. Not until the new building is erected and occu- 
pied can a proper arrangement and shelving of our extensive 
directory library be made.

from which they were received are as follows:

The two early manuscripts presented by President Brainard 
are of unustial interest. The address of Connecticut to King 
George III is in the handwriting of and signed by "Thomas 
Fitch, governor," and is one of condolence with the new king 
upon the death of his illustrious grandfather, the former king, 
and of congratulation upon his own accession to the throne. 
Curiously enough neither the records of the Colony of Con- 
necticut nor the official correspondence which passed between 
the Colony and England make any mention of this address, 
and the document itself, which has only recently come to light, 
is the onl}^ evidence that such an address was prepared and 
sent. The second document, which bears the signature of 
"George R." Ill, is an instruction to the Governor and 
Compan}' of Connecticut declaring and directing the neces- 
sary changes in the prayers, litanies and collects for the royal 
family, due to the death of George II and the accession of 
George III. Such an official document addressed to Con- 
necticut and bearing the royal sign manual is of the utmost 
rarity. This manuscript is accompanied by the printed order 
or proclamation of His Majesty in Council authorizing the.se 
changes. 

The History of the New Cambridge (Bristol) Episcopal 
Church written by our member James Shepard, the manu- 
script of which he has recently presented to us, represents 
many months of work and it has been his earnest hope to see 
the work in print; but in this he has up to the present time 
been disappointed, although it is ready for the press. 

Under the will of our generous patron Mr. George E. 
Hoadley the Societ}' has received his historical pamphlets 



and his collection of autographs and historical manuscripts. 
Among the pamphlets may l^e mentioned a number of eulogies 
on George Washington; the Columbian tragedy, Hartford, 
1 791, giving an account of the defeat of General Butler by the 
Indians; Remarks on the letter addressed to two great men, 
Hoston, about 1760; Bishop vSeabury's Communion office, New 
London, 1786, unfortunately imperfect; American cookery by 
A. Simmons, Hartford, 1796, a rare publication upon the sub- 
ject; Short account of the experience of Jonathan lid wards, 
Boston, 1745; Joel Barlow's Advice to the privileged orders, 
the first edition of both parts; Present state of North America, 
Boston, 1755; Considerations on the propriety of imposing 
taxes in the British colonies. New York, 1765; Candid exam- 
ination of Dr. Mayhew's observations, Boston, 1763; Twenty- 
six letters respecting the Revolution by John Adams, New 
York, 1789; Taxation no tyranny, London, 1775. There 
were also a number of the little publications issued by the 
"Hartford wits," so-called: The Stand, The Candle, The 
Extinguisher, The Round Table, The Square Table, The 
Retort, The Parterre, The Magpie. 

The historical manuscripts have already been listed. The 
autograph collection is extensive and contains many items 
worthy of special note; but at this time only a selection of 
the more important items can be mentioned. The arrange- 
ment, with the exception of the Sigourney collection, is that 
which had been made by Mr. Hoadley. 

The collection of autographs of the Presidents is complete 
and in addition to those noted elsewhere, contains autograph 
letters from Presidents and Vice-Presidents James Monroe,

The collection of autographs of Governors of Connecticut 
lacks only eleven of being complete, and of these nine are 
previous to 1750. While many of these are autograph letters, 
not a few are signed documents. The collections of Lieu- 
tenant-Governors and Secretaries of Connecticut are less com- 
plete; but contain a number of well-known names. Auto- 
graphs of only three Mayors of Hartford are needed to com- 
plete the collection.

J. A. Dahlgreen, David G. Farragut, L. M. Goldsborough, 
John Paul Jones, Oliver H. Perry, John Rogers and Charles 
Stewart; with letters signed by Esek Hopkins, Isaac Hull

May, 1776, signed by a dozen officers including John Paul 
Jones and Dudlej^ Saltonstall.

Southey and Alfred Tenny.son. Among the female writers 
are Rose Terry Cooke and Harriet Beecher Stowe. The

The Civil War collection has not yet been listed; but it con- 
tains letters from many ofhcers who took prominent parts in 
the conflict and numerous autographs of those who were less 
prominent. 

A portrait of Capt. Lemuel White has been presented to us 
by his grand-daughter Mary Elizabeth White of Dorchester, 
Mass. Captain White was born in Pvast Hartford, Nov. i, 
1762. He was a sea captain, in the China trade, and after- 
wards a merchant in East Hartford, where he was post-master 
and a justice of the peace. He was appointed a member of 



numerous state conimissious. His death occurred Dec. 8, 
1843. The portrait is signed " Foeigua Pinx," and was prob- 
abl\' painted abroad. 

Miss Mar}' E. Hastings of Hartford, whose gift of choice 
old furniture and other articles was noted in m^' last report, 
has made another valuable donation to the Society. This is 
a handsome case filled with memorials of the Lawrence famil}^ 
her ancestors. Among these are a silver spoon that belonged 
to John and Marian ( Beauchamp ) Lawrence, parents of Treasu- 
rer John; silver shoe and knee buckles and a pair of vSheffield 
candlesticks of Treasurer John Lawrence; silver porringer of 
his wife Margaret (Chenevard) made by John Edwards (1670- 
1746) of Boston; portrait (from a painting) of Alice Adams, 
the fiance of Capt. Nathan Hale, and a small silver spoon that 
belonged to her, also a small metal eagle supposed to have 
been worn by Hale on his cap. There are numerous other 
articles, as spoons and forks, rings, pins, bracelets, keys, seals 
and other family memorials too numerous to be individually 
mentioned here. 

Mrs. Wright Poindexter of West Hartford, a descendant of 
Gov. Joseph Talcott, has placed with the Society an interest- 
ing collection of Talcott family silver consisting of a porringer 
made by J. Lent of New York and marked with the initials 
of Matthew, sou of Gov. Joseph; a small creamer made by E. 
White; a salt shaker made by Jacob Hurd of Boston; a pair 
of shoe buckles; three table spoons marked with the initials 
of Matthew and his wife Mary; six small spoons marked with 
the initials of Matthew, all of which formerly belonged to 
Gov. Joseph Talcott; also eight tablespoons, twelve teaspoons 
and two small spoons marked A L for Abigail Ledyard, the 
wife of Samuel Talcott, a grandson of Gov. Joseph; a table- 
spoon marked S H M, said to have belonged to the Mott 
famih'. This silver was all exhibited in one of our cases, and 
later the more important pieces were loaned for a time to the 
Wadsworth Atheneum for exhibition. Miss Ellen Earle Flagg 
has also placed with us for exhibition a silver tankard made 
by John Burt of Boston probably about 1740, for Hannah the 
wife of Dr. Jonathan Bull of Hartford, and a sister of General 
David Wooster. It is one of three which Abraham Wooster 
caused to be made and presented to his daughters at the time 
of their marriage. 



On the occasion of the paper on Wampum read by Mr. 
Welles at our I''ebruar\- meetino;, a rather notable exhiliit of 
this rare article was arranged in one of our cases. A part of 
it was the j^roperty of the vSociety and the remainder was 
loaned by one of our members. 

Nearly twenty years ago our late member Charles W. Man- 
waring issued his monumental work giving A Digest of the 
Early Connecticut Probate Records: Hartford District, 1635- 
1750. The printing of these three volumes was made possi- 
ble by the cooperation of three other members of the Society, 
Gen. Lucius A. Barbour, Miles W. Graves and Samuel E. 
Elmore, all of whom are now decea.sed. The remaining unsold 
copies of the work came into the possession of Gen. Lucius 
B. Barbour, a member of the Society and son of the former 
Gen. Barbour, who has most generously presented them to 
the vSociety. While the active demand has been filled during 
the twent}- years since the first volume was issued, there is 
still a slow and steady .sale of the work, which in time will 
add a considerable sum to the Society's funds. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Albert C. Bates, Libraria)i.

To the Members of the CotniecticJtt Historical Soeiety: 

The thirtieth of this month marks the one hundredth anni- 
versary of the organization of this vSociety, and it seems fitting; 
that mention of the fact should be made at this time. The 
General Assembly then in session having passed an act to in- 
corporate the Connecticut Historical Society naming thirty- 
one incorporators, a meeting for incorporation was held at the 
State House in Hartford on May 30, 1825, which was pre- 
sided over by the venerable poet and lawyer, Hon. John 
Trumbull, who was chosen president. Other officers chosen 
were Rt. Rev. Thomas C. Brownell, vice president; Thomas 
Day, Esq., recording secretary; Rev. Thomas Robbins, cor- 
responding .secretary; Walter Mitchell, Esq., treasurer. An 
address was made by Dr. Robbins on the objects of the Society; 
and an adjournment was taken to the following day. At the 
adjourned meeting on May 31 a constitution was adopted 
which was .signed by sixteen members, organization was com- 
pleted by the appointment of a standing committee, and an 
adjournment was taken for tw'o days. On June 2 at the ad- 
journed meeting twenty-eight persons were proposed for mem- 
bership; and the Society may be considered as fairly launched 
upon its career. The removal of Judge Trumbull to Michigan 
later in the year was a blow to the Society from which it 
almost failed to recover. Its activities les.sened and finally 
ceased with the failure to hold an annual -election, .so that it 
became "a matter of doubt whether the Charter of said 
Society is not forfeited by non-user." At this juncture appli- 
cation was made to the Assembly for a renewal of the charter 
of the Society, and an act of renewal was pas.sed in May 1839. 
From this time the Society has steadily pursued its activities. 
The founding of the Society was no doubt due to the interest 
and efforts of Rev. Thomas Robbins, D.D., its first correspond- 
ing .secretary and later its first librarian and, until the recent 
legac}- from Mr. Hoadley, its greatest benefactor. Like credit 



should be given for its revival in 1S39 to Hon. Henr}- Barnard, 
who later became its third president. 

In the most important matter now under consideration by 
the Societ}', that of the erection of a bviilding wuth the fund 
left for that purpose by the will of our former life member, 
George E. Hoadley, no definite steps have yet been taken. It 
seems, however, as if the time had now come when this prob- 
lem should receive attention, and unless the Society feels 
differently, the committee that is now serving will give, dur- 
ing the coming year, its earnest attention to the solution of 
this problem. The amount received by the Society in Decem- 
ber 1923 from the distribution of Mr. Hoadley 's estate was 
$257,494.25. Through receipt and investment of income, re- 
investment of a small portion of the principal, increase through 
stock dividends and appreciation in the value of securities this 
fund has now grown to a total walue of $403,247.50; which it 
is believed is an amount sufficient to erect a building adequate 
for the needs of the Society. 

The will of George H. Fitts of Ashford, Conn., who died 
January 10, 1925, and who has been a member of the Societ}' 
for almost thirty years, contained a provision leaving a legacy 
of ten thousand dollars to the Society. It was specified in the 
will that this legacy should be held as a fund to be named the 
' ' George Henry Fitts Fund in Memory of Colonel Thomas 
Knowlton." Mr. Fitts was a great-grandson of Colonel 
Kuowlton. 

A circular was mailed to our members in December, telling 
of some of the treasures belonging to the Societj- and of the 
work which it is endeavoring to do and setting forth its finan- 
cial needs. Several members in response to this circular have 
sent checks for sums var3dng from twenty-five to one hundred 
and twenty-five dollars. These sums have been added to our 
general fund. 

During the year now closing twenty-three persons have been 
admitted to active membership and two have been added to 
our ex-oflficio list. Two who had been annual members have 
constituted themselves meml)ers for life. Sixteen active mem- 
l:)ers, one of whom was a life member, have died. One mem- 
ber has resigned and .several who had allowed their dues to 
become in arears have been dropped from our rolls. Our 



]iresent membership consists of 20 ex-officio members, one of 
whom is also an active member, 492 active, of whom 32 are 
members for life, one honorary and two corresponding mem- 
bers; a total membership of 515. 

We record the loss by death of the following members: 

Chaklp:s Edward Gross of Hartford, admitted to mem- 
bership in Jnly 1SS9, prominent in the legal profession 
and a former president of this Society, died December 
31. 1924-

teacher in that town, a life member, admitted Ma\- 
1890, died in California October 13, 1924.

1894, some time chief justice of the Supreme Court 
of the state, died November 2, 1924.

erly in business in the West, died January 10, 1925.

1904, an editor and writer, died February 20, 1925.

interested in genealogical research, was admitted April 
1905 and died September 12, 1924. 

I-'kaxk Bosworth Brandegee of New London, a United 
vStates senator from this state, admitted May 1905, died 
October 14, 1924. 

John P. Kellogg of Waterbury, a judge of the Connecti- 
cut Supreme Court, became an ex-ofificio member in 
March 19 17 and died January' 16, 1925. 

Col. Charles K. Thompson of Hartford, admitted No- 
vember 1920, long connected with insurance interests 
and at the time of his death governor of the Connecti- 
cut Society of Mayflower Descendants, died September 
-5< 1924- 

Mrs. Katharine S. Bacon of Middletown, who was con- 
nected with many prominent families of the state, was 
admitted December 1920 and died June 24, 1924. 



HuBER Gray Buehler, principal of Hotchkiss School in 
Lakeville, admitted December 1920, died June 30, 1924. 

Eli Whitney, a prominent resident of New Haven, ad- 
mitted January 1921, died Jiuie 12, 1924. 

Frank C. Sumner, admitted March 1921, a prominent 
banker of Hartford, died December 9, 1924. 

WiLLiA.M Lixius Armstrong of Hartford, admitted De- 
cember 191 8, died September 12, 1924. 

William H. Newell of Hartford, prominent in the life 
insurance field, admitted November 1923, died June 8, 
1924. 

Lawrence Brainerd of Cambridge, Mass., a well known 
genealogist, admitted January 1924, died March 12, 
1925- 

The following papers have been read at our regular monthly 
meetings: 

In October a paper by Herbert H. White on the " Defense 
of the sea-coast of Connecticut during the Revolution," 
describing the various fortifications, the raids by the 
British and the activities of the American boats. 

" Cartwright's Journal of the Labrador " was the subject of 
the paper in November b}' Professor Henry A. Perkins. 
The paper was based upon the story told in the Journal 
and also gave a sketch of Cartwright. 

Rev. Samuel C. Bushnell of New Haven told of "The 
'Monitor' and the ' Merrimac ' — inside information" 
at the Decemljer meeting, giving an interesting story of 
the building of the " Monitor" and a vivid description 
of her encounter with the " Merrimac." 

Dr. Allan D. Risteen at the January meeting gave some 
"Side lights on vShakespeare," sketching the times in 
which he lived and giving an account of the families 
with whom he is known to have been ac(iuainted. 

" Lebanon — a legacy " was the title of a charmingly written 
paper describing that old Connecticut Town, which was 
read in February b}^ Harry K. Tajdor. 

At the March meeting Dr. George H. Cohen described in 
detail "A new world peace plan" wliich he had 
evolved. 



George A. Long at the April meeting gave a talk upon 
" Hartford inventors of the past and their achieve- 
ments," sketching the lives of these men and giving 
accounts of important inventions by them. 

At the May meeting Col. P'rancis Parsons read a paper, 
written in his usual charming style, entitled " Benja- 
min vSilliman visits England in 1805." 

It seems fitting to call attention at this time to the gradual 
increase of the principal of the vSociety's Publication Fund 
through the sale from time to time of books which have been 
presented by the following members: Trescott C. Barnes, 
Robbins Battell, Morgan Cx. Bulkeley, William H. Bulkeley, 
James J. Goodwin, Mary Hall, tldwin Pond Parker, James 
Shephard, George B. Thayer. 

I would suggest that as soon as arrangements for .so doing 
can be made and a favorable opportunity occurs, a permanent 
and full time assistant to the librarian be secured — one who 
may have the benefit of the knowledge and experience of our 
present librarian, and one that may be trained .so that when 
the time comes ( a time which we hope is in the far distant 
future) that our present librarian feels it desirable to be 
relieved of his duties, we will have some one who can, in a 
measure, fill his place. 

Morgan B. Br.\in.\rd, 

President.

Mr. President and Members of the Society: 

Once more the year has rolled around and brings to me the 
not unpleasant duty of again calling to your attention some 
matters of interest relating to the Society and the work which 
it is endeavoring to accomplish. 

It is only a repetition of what has more than once been said 
to state that the overcrowded condition of our rooms continues 
and increases. Shelves are crowded to their limit and in some 
portions of our rooms the floors are so covered with piles of 
books that it is only through narrow and winding paths that 
the room may be traversed. Three tall cases in our hall or 
meeting room have been shelved and filled with large books 
that are seldom used; thus giving some space in our stack 
room for recent accessions. In our newspaper rooms the over- 
flow from the shelves is stacked in piles on bases raised from 
the floor to avoid dampness. Our manuscript vaults, although 
their contents have been subjected to some rearrangement in 
order to economize space, are now practically filled. Our 
storage space for editions of our publications and other dupli- 
cate books is fully occupied and we have l)y courtes}' of the 
Wadsworth Atheneum already encroached upon that institu- 
tion's scant storage space. Where the edition of even one 
more volume of our " Collections," when issued, can be stored, 
your librarian does not know. It is scarcely necessary to say 
that under these conditions the Society's library cannot be 
used to the best advantage; and your librarian is sometimes 
unah)le to locate a book or pamphlet that is certainly in the 
library. The present situation from that point of view is 
extremely discouraging. I^et us hope, however, that a future 
still brighter than its past is in store for the Society. 

In addition to the usual genealogical workers, students of 
history and incidental users of the library, there have been 
during the year a number of persons doing original research 



work in various historical fields who have made good use of 
our library, some of whom traveled a long distance for the 
purpose. 

The total of accessions during the year, other than manu- 
scripts, is slightly less than last year; but is above the average 
for several preceding years. The gifts were 591 volumes, 584 
pamphlets and 77 miscellaneous. The purchases were 224 
volumes, 241 pamphlets and 114 miscellaneous; among which 
were eight volumes credited to the Charles J. Hoadly fund, 
five volumes to the Lucy A. Brainard Book Fund and two 
volumes to the William F. J. Boardman Fund. Two volumes 
and three pamphlets were added by direct exchange. These 
make a total of 817 volumes, 828 pamphlets and 191 miscel- 
laneous; and a grand total of 1836 items. 

The number of readers who from day to day have made use 
of the library during the year now ending is 3,323. This is 
.slightly greater than the number for la.st year, which was con- 
sidered an unusual year; and is more than seven per cent 
above the average for the five years next preceding this. 

"The Wyllys Papers, 1590-1796," forming the twenty-first 
volume of the Society's series of "Collections," upon which 
work has been in progress for two years, were issued in Feb- 
ruary as an octavo volume of 600 pages, including a sketch of 
Gov. George Wyllys and a rather comprehensive index. The 
important positions held by members of this family in Connec- 
ticut during colonial days and the numerous early and inter- 
esting letters and documents which the volume contains, make 
this, it is believed, a book of more than ordinary value. In 
calling attention to this volume mention should again be made 
of the courtesy of Lemuel A. Welles, Esq., a member of the 
Society and owner of the Wyllys manuscripts, in permitting 
the Society to print the.se manuscripts. 

The "annual report," a pamphlet of 57 pages containing 
the usual review of the Society's activities for the preceding 
year, was issued in July. 

Our collection of printed genealogies has been increased 
during the year by the addition of the following: Avery, 
Bagg, Banning, Bridge, Buck, Chapin, Cowing, Dommerich 
and others, Dutcher, Eaton, Eddy Association, Field Ances- 
try, Haynes, Hillhouse, Hungerford, Jaudon, Judd, McNary,

Nichols, Nye, Olmsted, Orton, Paine, Perr}-, Pierce, Piatt, 
Reynolds, Rockwell and Keeler, Rockwell, Spoor, Stearns, 
Taber, Torrey, Tread well. Underwood, Warner, W'incliell, 
Wyatt Ancestry. 

To our unrivaled collection of Connecticut eighteenth cen- 
tury imprints, publications of the following years have been 
added: 1717, 1783, [1786?], 1787, 1789, 1796, 1798, 1799. 

A number of the once popular annuals and gift books have 
been added to our extensive collection of these publications; 
a collection established through the gift a few years ago by 
our member Caroline M. Hewins of her splendid collections of 
these works. 

The Hartford Printing Company (Elihu Geer Sons) have 
continued the building of our library of directories of different 
cities by the gift of 76 volumes. These out of date volumes 
are consulted much more frequently than might be supposed, 
and are often referred to by the life insurance companies, as 
well as b}- persons who are .seeking missing relatives or 
friends. 

The generous gift received from two of our members, Ed- 
ward B. Morris and John Felt Morris was a most welcome and 
valuable one. It consists of books, pamphlets, newspaper 
clippings and manu.scripts gathered or prepared by two former 
and now deceased members, John E. Morris and Mrs. Mary 
P. Morris, parents of the donors. A majority of the books 
and pamphlets are publications of various patriotic and heredi- 
tary societies. Foremost among the clippings are two series 
mounted in scrap books and reaching back for about a genera- 
tion of time from the present. The first series consists of 131 
volumes of " Obituary Notices" accompanied by three manu- 
script volumes of index. The second of 52 volumes of " Social 
Notes" accompanied by two manu.script volumes of index. 
These volumes have already proved their worth, and Xhey will 
grow increasingly valuable as the years pass. Already on one 
occasion a volume of the Obituaries furnished desired informa- 
tion about a deceased public man, who had had a national 
career, that could not be found in any published book and 
that two of the largest libraries of the country could not 
supply. There are also a quantity of clippings roughly 
as.sorted under date or subject, that remain in boxes, un- 



mounted and unindexed. Naturally these clippings are to a 
certain degree local in their nature; but they contain much 
that is of nation wide and even of international interest. 
Accompanying the above series are Hartford Times genealogi- 
cal notes mounted in five volumes, historical articles relating 
to Hartford mounted in two volumes, and Boston Transcript 
genealogical notes for about fifteen years, carefully arranged 
in chronological order, but unmounted. The manuscript 
genealogies and copies of records, which are listed elsewhere 
in this report, form valuable additions to our collections along 
these lines. 

Among publications of special interest added to the library 
may be mentioned Philips' Notes on the Life and Works of 
Bernard Romans, Akagi's Town Proprietors of the New Eng- 
land Colonies, Minutes of Methodist Conferences in America 
1 773-1 794, three volumes relating to Lorenzo and Peggy 
Dow, the first eleven volumes (1847-1857) of the Derby 
Journal; Abridged Compendium of American Genealog}- and 
Jones' Old Silver of American Churches from \'ice President 
Williams, \'ictoria History of the Counties of P)ngland, Wor- 
cester vol. 4, Berkshire vol. 4, and Index to York, from 
our late \'ice President James J. Goodwin, Old Times of North 
Yarmouth, Me., volume of scarce pamphlets b\- Rev. Samuel 
Fisk of Lebanon, Authentic Narrative of the Seminole War 
jirinted at Providence in 1836 and apparently an edition un- 
known to collectors, the revised edition of Nutting's Pilgrim 
Furniture — the dedication copy — the gift of Henry W. Erving 
to whom it was dedicated, Kelly's Early Domestic Architec- 
ture of Connecticut the gift of President Brainard, Johnson's 
Wonder Working Providences printed at London in 1654, the 
gift of Clifford E. Bristol of Winsted, unfortunately not a per- 
fect copy, a set of the Wyoming Commemorative Association 
reports from our member E. S. Tillotson. 

A paper entitled Some Notes on Wampum, written and 
read before the Society by our member E. Stanley Welles, has 
been privately published by him and one half of the edition 
presented to the Society to be sold. Proceeds from the .sale of 
these pamphlets are to be allowed to accumulate until they 
amount to two hundred dollars, which sum is to form the 
principal of a fund the income of which is to be expended in 



IS 

the purchase of books for the library. By vote of the Society 
tliis fund has been named the Edwin Stanley Welles Fund. 

On the occasion of the reading of this paper by Mr. Welles, 
a rather unusual display of strings of wampum was shown in 
one of our cases. A part of this was the property of the 
Society and the remainder was loaned for the occasion b}" one 
of our members. 

A small portrait on canvas of John Lawrence of Hartford, 
painted by a member of the Lawrence family, was presented 
to us by his great-great-great-granddaughter, Mar}- E. Hast- 
ings of Hartford, who has previously made valuable gifts to 
the Society. John Lawrence for twenty years from 1 769-1 7S9 
held the important position of treasurer of Connecticut. He 
was also Ignited States commissioner of loans for Connecticut 
during the Revolution. 

At the time last month of the one hundred and fiftieth anni- 
versary of the encounter at Lexington and Concord a displaj- 
of rare documents, engravings and printed matter closely con- 
nected with that event was made. The most important of the 
manuscripts was the official announcement of the engagement, 
dated "In Provintial Congress Watertown April 23, 1775," 
signed b}' " Joseph Warren Presid' Pro Temp." and dispatched 
by John Bliss, a member of that Congress, "To the Gov'' & 
Co of Connecticutt." The most important prints were a 
colored set of the four scenes engraved by Amos Doolittle of 
New Haven depicting the advance and retreat of the British 
and the engagements at Lexington green and Concord bridge. 
The April twenty-eighth issue of the Connecticut Gazette, 
published in Xew London showing the first detailed account of 
the engagement printed in Connecticut. Numerous other 
items of interest were also shown. 

A splendid addition to the Lucy A. Brainard Book Fund 
was received from the Ca.se, Lockwood & Brainard Company 
in the gift from that company to the Society of the remaining 
unsold copies of the \'ital Records of Woodstock, 1686-1854, 
issued in 191 4 as the fourth in the series of Connecticut \'ital 
Records. A further welcome addition to this fund was re- 
ceived from Hon. Newton C. Brainard who presented to the 
Society the remaining copies of the Orderly Book of Lieut. 
Abraham Chittenden, Adj't 7th Conn. Reg't, Aug. 16 to 



Sept. 29, 1776, which was privately issued by him three years 
ago. Proceeds from the sale of these volumes are to be added 
to the principal of this fund. Miss Brainard's cash gifts for 
this fund from time to time amounted to $1,000 and many 
years ago when the fund was small $100 was b}- vote of the 
vSociety added to the principal from the accrued income. Pro- 
ceeds from the sale of books presented by Miss Brainard and 
l)y her nephews Morgan B. Brainard, our president, and Hon. 
Newton C. Brainard, together with increase of the fund 
through wi.se investment have already added $450 to the 
principal of this fund. 

Two local events of more than passing historical interest 
have been called to the attention of our members at our regu- 
lar meetings, and so have been entered upon the records of 
the Society: the total eclipse of the sun on the morning of 
January twenty-fourth and the distinct earthquake shock 
which occurred on the evening of February twenty-eighth. 

The following have been added during the year to our col- 
lection of manuscripts by the persons named:

PrpBtb^nt^B KhhvtBB. 



To the Members of the Connecticut Historical Society: 

Pressure of other affairs caused me recently to notify the 
nominating committee of the Society that, even should they 
desire it. I would be unable to consider a re-election to the 
office of president. My association with the Society as its 
president has been a most agreeable one and one that I have 
thoroughly enjoyed. I congratulate the Society on securing 
Dr. \\'illiams as its president, and feel sure that no one could 
more wisely guide its affairs than he. 

During the year the bequest of George H. Fitts which was 
mentioned in my last report has been received. Mr. Fitts, who 
had been for many years a member of the Society and who 
died January lo, 1925. left to the Society a legacy of ten 
thousand dollars. He specified in his will that this should be 
held as the " George Henry Fitts Fund, in Memory of Colonel 
Thomas Knowlton." Colonel Knowlton was Mr. Fitts' great- 
grandfather. 

Silas Chapman, Jr.. a well known Hartford business man 
and a member of this Society, who died September 10, 1925, 
after making some minor bequests, left to the Society one- 
fifteenth of his residuary estate. As his estate is still in 
process of settlement the amount of this bequest can not yet 
be definitely stated ; but it is estimated that it will be at least 
fifty thousand dollars. 

James Shepard of Xew Britain, whose name had been on 
our membership roll for almost thirty-five years, died February 
15, 1926. He left by his will to this Society the sum of two 
thousand dollars, subject to the life use of Mrs. Shepard. 

These several legacies when received should result in a 
more than fifty per cent increase in the present income avail- 
able for the general purposes of the Society. 

The death of two of our officers during the year has been 
followed by the election of Alain C. White of Litchfield as a 
Vice-President to take the place of Carl Stoeckel, deceased ; 



and of Albion B. Wilson as a member of the Membership 
Committee to take the place of Edwin P. Taylor, deceased. 

The following papers have been presented at our regular 
monthly meetings : 

Charles C. Cook in October gave " Reminiscences of the ' Coal

Since our last annual meeting thirty-six persons have been 
admitted to active membership in the Society, one of whom has 
constituted herself a member for life, and two have been added 
to our ex-officio list. Twenty-three active members, three of 
whom were members for life, and one corresponding member 
have died. Two ex-ofificio members, Justices of the Supreme 
Court of the state, have been retired by age limit. Our mem- 
bership at present consists of 20 ex-officio members, one of 
whom is also an active member, 500 active, of whom 30 are 
members for life, one honorary and one corresponding member; 
a total membership of 521. This is the first time since the 
organization of the Society that its active membership has 



reached five hundred. Uur members are credited for residence 
to one foreign country, nine states other than Connecticut, 
and 85 towns or post office addresses within the state.

This year of 1926 is recoj^nizcd in this country as an anni- 
versary year. July fourth will be the sesqui-centennial of llie 
adoption of the L^eclaration of Independence, the corner stone 
of our ])olitical liberty and freedom. Freedom seems to have 
been in the air in that year of 1776. Connecticut did not 
stand passive until the general Declaration of Tndei)cndence 
was adopted; but on June 18, 1776, exactly a month later than 
this day one hundred and fifty years ago. the Colony of Con- 
necticut through its governor, Jonathan 'I'rumbull. issued a 



13 

proclamation which is fre(|uentl\" spoken of as " Connecticut's 
Declaration of Independence." 

This proclamation recites that " having no Alternative hut 
absolute Slavery, or successful Resistance; this, and the United 
American Colonies, have been constrained — to take up Arms 
for the Defence of all that is sacred and dear to Freeman. — 
and resist Force by Force." Their purpose being " for Defence 
against the soon expected Attack and Invasion of those who 
are our enemies without a Cause — the General Assembly of 
this Colony have freely and unanimously agreed and resolved, 
that upwards of Seven Thousand able and effective Men be 
immediately raised, furnished and eciuipped, for the great and 
interesting Purposes aforesaid. — Be exhorted to rise, there- 
fore, to superior Exertions on this great Occasion; and let all 
that are able — shew themselves ready in behalf of their in- 
jured and oppressed Country, — and convince the unrelenting 
Tyrant of Britain, that they are resolved to be Free." 

This Society is most fortunate in possessing one of the 
printed copies of this proclamation, less than half a dozen of 
which are known to be extant ; and is doubly fortunate in 
also possessing the unique manuscript original of the proclama- 
tion. This manuscript, in the handwriting of his son-in-law 
William Williams, is signed by Governor Trumbull, and by 
the clerks of both Houses of the General Assembly. It is 
endorsed as a " Proclamation for Reformation &c." 

I cannot close my term of service as President of the 
Society without calling to the attention of the members the 
devoted service of its librarian, Mr. Albert C. Bates. The 
present position of the Society is largely due to his efforts, and 
the gratifying increase in membership, which I have mentioned 
earlier in this report, is due almost entirely to him. He has 
served for years at an inadequate compensation and given his 
time ungrudgingly, and there can be no question but that when 
the financial condition of the Society warrants it, his salary 
should be increased and an assistant provided for him. It is 
my hope that the officers of the Society can find means to 
provide for this situation. 

Morgan B. Brainard, 

President. 



H 



ICtbrarian a Sr^jurt 



Mr. President and Members of the Society: 

Another \car has passed in the life history of this Societv. 
Another year of disappointment to your Lihrarian ; for our 
anticipated new home appears to he as far away in the future 
as ever. IMeanwhile it seems ahnost trite to again mentitni 
the crowded condition of our rooms and the ever increasing" 
need of more space for our books, manuscripts and other 
collections and of more help to carry on the increasing work 
of the Society. At present your librarian with the aid of a 
])art time helper does what he can; the rest remains undone. 

It was the hope and expectation that at this time some 
})rogress would be reported in the actual printing of another 
volume of our series of " Collections." This expectation has 
not been fulfilled. After considerable time had been spent in 
arranging for the press the manuscript of a volume having to 
do with the period of the War of the Revolution, your Publica- 
tion Committee decided to postpone for a time further work 
upon that volume, and to give its attention to another manu- 
script. 

Some years ago the Society of Colonial Wars in the Stale 
of Connecticut voted to publish the records of the Particular 
Court of Connecticut, which cover the period from the early 
settlement of the colony down to 1666. A photostat of the 
original records was made as a working copy and a committee 
of that society was named to undertake the issue of the volume. 
Various causes, including the death of some members of the 
committee, combined to delay the work upon these records to 
the present time. The Society of Colonial Wars and this 
Society have now arranged a plan by which they arc to unite- 
in the publication of these records. The Society of Colonial 
Wars has caused a typewritten copy to be made which with 
the photostat has been placed in the hands of the i)ublication 
committee of this Society, which will undertake to issue the 
volume as f)ne of our series of " Collections." The (H\ i>ion of 



15 

the printed copies and of the cost of publication has been agreed 
upon by the two societies. It has been found necessary to 
go carefully over the typewritten copy and compare il with the 
photostat before the manuscript can be submitted to the printer. 
This has been done for about two-thirds of the copy; so that 
the whole can soon be made ready for the printer's hands. The 
earlier part of these Particular Court records was printed in 
1850 along with the records of the General Court in the first 
volume of the Records of the Colony of Connecticut. Aside 
from its being one of a series of fifteen volumes, this volume 
is now scarce and difficult to procure, and it has been thought 
best to reprint such portion of the records of the Particular 
Court as are there printed. Such action will gather all of the 
records of the Particular Court into one printed volume. 

Our only publication during the year has been the usual 
annual report, a pamphlet of 59 pages, copies of which are sent 
to our members, to our exchanging societies and to our prin- 
cipal donors. 

The Society of Colonial Wars in the State of Connecticut, 
acting upon the recommendation of Gen. Lucius B. Barbour, 
has placed with the Society the remaining sets of the two 
volumes of Norwich Vital Records. Proceeds from the sale 
of these books are to be divided equally between the Colonial 
Wars and this Society. Gen. Barbour had shown a similar 
interest in this Society on a previous occasion by placing with 
us for sale the remaining sets of Manwaring's Probate Records 
of Hartford District from the earliest times to 1750. 

Air. Charles K. Bolton of Boston, whose studies on early 
American portraits are well known, has interested himself in 
one of the early paintings belonging to this Society. The por- 
trait was presented in 1844 by Gen. Samuel L. Pitkin of East 
Hartford as that of Rev. Increase Mather. Gen. Pitkin was 
a descendant of Rev. Eleazer Mather, a brother of Increase. 
The portrait has been much altered since it was originally 
painted, and possibly it does not now portray the original 
sitter. It bears an inscription, now very faint, which apj^ears 
to read "^Etat Svae 63 An : 49." The date of this inscrip- 
tion is a generation too early to refer to Rev. Increase Mather. 
It is the belief of Mr. Bolton that the portrait is that of Rev. 
John Cotton of Boston, the father-in-law of Rev. Increase; 



16 

and the inscription as read would be correct for the age of 
Cotton at that date. Mr. Bolton also reasons out that the Bible 
which the sitter holds in his hand and the text at which it is 
open are strong evidence that the portrait is that of Cotton, 
and he advances logical reasons for this belief. If the correct- 
ness of his belief can be established, this .Society is owner of 
the only known portrait of the eminent divine John Cotton. 

By the will of the late Frederick Jabez Huntington of 
Norwich, who for almost thirty years was a member of the 
Society, we have received the following valuable gifts which 
are of much historical interest. J'ortraits of Gov. Jonathan 
Trumbull and his wife Faith (Robinson), both on one canvas 
and each in an oval, painted by their son John Trumbull in 
1/74 at the age of eighteen and probably one of his earliest 
works. They were great-great-grandparents of Mr. Hunting- 
ton. Picture of the Holy Family by John Trumbull, presum- 
ably painted while he was abroad and possibly a co]iy of some 
early work. Miniature of Gen. Jedediah Huntington, great- 
grandfather of the donor, painted by John Trumbull. Gen. 
Jedediah Huntington's dress sword (rapier) in a silver mounted 
white leather scabbard. Large embroidered scene worked by 
Faith Robinson, presumably before her marriage to Jonathan 
Trumbull in 1735. Silver can with handle made by Samuel 
Minott of Boston and marked with the initials of Jonathan 
and Faith Trumbull. .Silver tea])ot. ]:)ear-shaped. made b\' 
Daniel Parker of Boston, marked S L for Sarah Lanman the 
donor's step-grandmother. 

Among our accessions of printed material may be men- 
tioned a quantity of pamphlets from Newton C. Brainard, the 
annual gift of directories of other cities from the Hartford 
Printing Company, musical pamphlets from the late N. H. 
Allen, books and pamphlets from the daughters of the late Gen. 
Joseph R. Hawley, pamphlets published by Frank 1). .\ndrews. 
telephone directories of different cities and towns from the 
Southern New England Telephone Company and from /Mice 
M. Gay, publications of the Genealogical Society of Pennsyl- 
vania from May A. Leach, an interesting volume of pamphlets 
formerly in the " Duane Collection " from James S. Elston. 
a volume containing 170 musical programmes of Hartford and 
vicinity from 1845 to 1884. early Connecticut ]'".i)iscoiial Con- 



vention journals and early Danbury Baptist Association jour- 
nals, Hoadley family records in a beautifully bound Bible from 
Robert C. Beers, about 75 volumes (not of an historical nature) 
from the family library of the Hoadley s. 

Among Connecticut books of interest added to the library 
may be mentioned Maritime Connecticut presented by the author, 
Louis F. Middlebrook ; History of Connecticut, in five volumes, 
edited by Norris G. Osborn ; History of Southington by 
Atwater; History of East Haven church by EversuU ; the con- 
tinuation of Families of Ancient New Haven; History of the 
Connecticut River Banking Company, a more inclusive volume 
than its title would indicate; Richards' Sketches of Farming- 
ton ; Story of New Britain by Tryon ; Two hundredth anni- 
versary of First church in Cheshire. 

Mr. C. Alfred Weatherby of East Hartford has presented 
us with a copy of Thomas Cartwright's "A Confutation of the 
Rhemists. Printed in the yeare 1618." The interesting fact 
which is not stated on the volume's title page is that it was 
printed at Leyden in Holland by Elder William Brewster, 
" the Chief of the Pilgrims." This copy was formerly the prop- 
erty of Rev. Anson Seth Atwood who became the settled 
minister of the First Congregational Church of Mansfield, 
Conn., in 1819 and continued in that capacity for almost half 
a century. The volume probably came to Mr. Atwood from 
the Church Library of his church, which after having been 
maintained for many years was broken up and dispersed dur- 
ing his ministry. It remained in the possession of his de- 
scendants until presented to the Society by his great-grandson 
Aug. 28. 1925. There is a copy of this work in Yale Uni- 
versity Library and another copy is owned by the Massachu- 
setts Society of Mayflower Descendants. 

From Louis B. Hubbard of New York City we have re- 
ceived the " Hubbard Family Bible." now much worn, which is 
believed to have been brought to this country by George 
Hubbard before 1640. 

Genealogies of the following families have been added to 
our collection : Annis. Avery ancestral pedigrees, Badger, 
Baldwin, Beach, Bradley, Brown, Buford, Burnap-Burnett, 
Cartwright. Dresser, Earle. Eddy, Fox, Ancestors of Hannah

century not previously in the library have been secured; 1767 
(imperfect), 1771, 1774. 1793, 1795, 1796. 

Dr. Philip D. Bunce has presented us with an inscribed 
cane made from wood of the old flagship " Hartford " which 
had been given to his father Jonathan B. Bunce by Admiral 
Francis M. Bunce. uncle of Dr. Bunce. From Mrs. Ellen 
Battell Stoeckel we have received a cane which was formerly 
used by our honored first librarian. Rev. Thomas Robbins, an 
inscription on the gold head of which shows that it was pre- 
sented to him in 1819 by J(oseph) B(attell), his brother-in-law. 

Our readers during the past year number 3167. This is 
less than the number for the previous year, which was an excep- 
tional one ; but is greater than the average for the last three, 
four or five years. 

The accessions during the year now closing considerably 
exceed those of the previous year. The gifts number 522 
volumes, 1138 pamphlets and 113 miscellaneous; the purchases 
135 volumes. 285 pamphlets and 58 miscellaneous, and one 
l)amphlct was added by direct exchange. Among the volumes 
pin\-hased are one credited to the W^illiam F. J. Boardnian 
Fund, eight to the Lucy A. Brainard Book Fund, tliirtecn to 
the Goldthwaite Fund (which in fact is not a fund, but an 
account), six to the Charles J. Hoadly Fund, four to the 
Jonathan Flynt Morris Fund and two to the Gurdon W. Russell 
Book Fund. The total accessions amount to 657 volumes. 1424 
pamphlets and 171 miscellaneous; making a grand total of 
2252 items. These totals do not include the manuscripts.

A few months since the evidence contained in some genea- 
logical notes written by Mr. George E. Hoadley, and included 
among the manuscripts received by the Society under his will, 
proved of sufficient importance to settle and quiet an uncertain 
boundary and title to a piece of real estate in Hartford, in- 
volving a transaction of a quarter of a million dollars. 

The extreme rarity and value of some of the books and 
pamphlets in the Society's library is frequently brought home 
to your librarian. Two such instances have occurred within 
the last month. In one a person making a study of a certain 
subject had search made in every important library from Boston 
to Washington for a particular book printed in this state about 
a century ago; but only in our library could a copy be found. 
Another person found in the large library of his home city 
several of the publications issued by a Connecticut worthy about 
whose life he was writing. Coming to our library he found 
not only some of the publications he had already seen ; but 
copies of all that he had not seen, including one of which our 
copy is perhaps an unique example. 

It may be remarked that the commercial value of the rari- 
ties in our library, particularly the early imprints, is constantly 
and steadily increasing. It is, of course, impossible to state 



21, 

with any finality the rate of increase in the commercial value 
of the library as a whole; but it seems to your librarian a 
reasonable estimate that during any given period of years the 
increase in value of the books and manuscripts would equal 
the interest at five per cent on the value at the beginning of 
such period. 

While it will be in direct opposition to the present policy, 
it seems to your librarian to be quite within the bounds of 
possibility that sooner or later the Society will find it neces- 
sary to in some manner restrict or curtail the use. and not in- 
frequently the abuse, of its library by persons who have no 
interest in the Society other than what they can get from it. 
and who either do not know how to properly handle its books 
or do not care how they treat them. This is not a public library 
and the public is permitted to use it only by the courtesy of its 
owners — the members of the Society. 

The Society has appointed delegates from among its mem- 
bers to represent it at the meetings of the American Academy 
of Political and Social Science, held in Philadelphia last week, 
and at the second Anglo-American Conference of Professors 
and Teachers of History, to be held in London in July. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Albert C. Bates, Librarian.

At our regular monthly meetings the following papers have 
been presented : 

Frederick Calvin Norton, at the first meeting in October, 
gave an account of "Early Slavery in Connecticut", 
with particular attention to the blacks and their 
freedom under state laws. 

"An Artist of the Old School" was the topic in November, 
Archibald A. Welch giving an entertaining account of 
the late Gedney Bunce. 

In December Professor Curtis M. Geer gave "Some Aspects 
of Social Life in Connecticut Two Hundred Years 
Ago", basing his paper on an account book kept by 
James Harris, Jr., of Saybrook. 

Harold G. Holcombe in January read a paper, which showed 
much study, on "Washington's New Jersey Campaign 
of 1776". 

"Customs and Legends of the Vanishing American — the 
Indian", a subject in which he is much interested, was 
the title of a paper by Elliott B. Bronson of Winchester 
at the February meeting. 

An interesting historical paper was that of Professor 
Raphael Semmes at the March meeting, entitled "Eco- 
nomic Beginnings of Maryland, 1634-1661". 

The paper by Mrs. Alfred T. Periy in April on "The 
French Four Hundred" gave an entertaining account 
of a settlement in Ohio by a company of French aristo- 
crats near the end of the eighteenth century. 

Wallace Nutting of Framingham, Mass., the well known 
writer on antique furniture, gave a talk at the May 
meeting on "Colonial Homes and their Furnishings", 
which he accompanied with about two hundred slides 
illustrating quaint interiors and rare examples of earl); 
American furniture. 



The talk of Mr. Xutting brought to the meeting one hund"ed 
and twenty-tive members and friends of the Society. Cuir 
librarian states that this was almost a record audience, havin;.,^ 
been exceeded only on the occasion of a paper by our then 
President, Dr. Charles J. Hoadly. in 1893. 

The Society appointed Aliss May Atherton Leach as its 
delegate to the Annual ^Meeting of the American Academy of 
Political and Social Science in Philadelphia. An interesting 
report of its proceedings, which she sent, was read at a meet- 
ing of the Connecticut Historical Society held May 3rd. 

At the same meeting the President, who. with Professor 
Arthur Adams, had been appointed delegate to the Bi-Cen- 
tenary Celebration of the American Philosophical Society, in 
Philadelphia, from the 27th to the 30th of April, said — "The 
two-hundredth iVnniversary of that society, founded by Ben- 
jamin Franklin in 1727. was commemorated in a way to make 
the celel)ration a notable event among the many meetings of 
that ancient organization. The obsen'ances seemed to be 
treated with almost reverential regard by learned Societies 
and Universities abroad and in our own country. The speak- 
ers, as would be expected, were of the highest rank in their 
respective fields of study and investigation, and their papers 
were of the greatest interest. The exercises ended with a 
formal banquet, attended by a large number of delegates from 
this country, from various countries of Europe and from 
South America, and addressed b\- distinguished speakers who 
paid tribute to the useful life of the founder of the Society. 
The celebration of this 2CX)th Anniversary was an impressive 
event." 

The Connecticut Historical Society, by its present member- 
ship, the cjuality of the papers presented at its meetings and 
the numbers in attendance, the valuable gifts and substantial 
bequests received, the important historical acquisitions of books 
and manuscripts, presents evidence that the Society has in- 
creased in usefulness and continued to justify the wisdom of 
its founders during the century of its existence. For the 
Connecticut Historical Society is now more than one hundred 
years old. It was incorporated by the General Assembly at its 
Mav session in 1825. by an act which provided, among other 



things, that the corporation should "meet once a year for the 
choice of a President" and other officers. Within the first 
year, John Trumbull, (judge, author of M'Fingal, one of the 
"Hartfcjrd wits") the first President of the Society, removed 
from the state. George Washington Doane, (professor of 
belles-lettres 1824-1828 in Washington — now Trinity — Col- 
lege, and Bishop of New Jersey from 1832 to his death in 
1859) "secretary of the standing committee" removed to Bos- 
ton in 1828. and became Assistant Rector of Christ Church, 
of which he was Rector 1830-1832. No election after the first 
one was held until 1839. It was then deemed prudent to have 
the Charter "renewed", and it was, by act of the General 
Assembly at the May session of 1839, which provided that its 
"powers and privileges ***** \)q continued ***** as 
though its officers had been chosen annually since 1825". 

A meeting of the Society was then called for Saturday, the 
first day of June, 1839, "at the rooms of the Young Men's 
Institute in Gilman's Building, 146^^ Main Street". The 
Hartford Young Men's Institute was incorporated by act of 
the General Assembly at its May session in 1839, also ; and by 
this act it was provided that, — "The first meeting of the Insti- 
tute shall be holden on the first Tuesday of June [the 4th]". 
This corporation was the immediate successor of the Young 
Men's Institute, in the rooms of which the meeting of the 
Connecticut Historical Society had been called for the first 
day of June. 

In 1841 a subscription i)aper was framed for the raising of 
Twenty Thousand Dollars, to l^e subscrilied before December 
first of that year, to secure a gift proposed by Daniel Wads- 
worth, who ofifered "to grant a lot of land lying between an 
alley north and Charles Brainard's land south, and between 
Main Street west and the garden and grounds in his own 
occupancy east, as a site for a building to be constructed in 
three divisions with suitable walls between them extending 
from the foundation to the roof, as a protection from fire, and 
to be separately used, one for a gallery of fine arts, another 
division for the library and other accommodations of The 
Hartford Young Men's Institute [the name of which was 
changed to The Hartford Librarv Association bv act of the 



14 

General Assembly approved March 26, 1878] : and the third 
division for the use of the Connecticut Historical Society 
* * *"' Every subscriber to the amount of Twenty-five Dollars 
or more was to be a member of the corporation to be formed, 
and at all meetings of the shareholders the holder of one 
Twenty-five Dollar share would be "entitled to give one vote". 
The holder of a share of One Hundred Dollars would have 
four votes. The One Hundred Dollar shares were to be 
"assignable and transmissible", but those of Twenty-five Dol- 
lars each were to "become extinct upon tlie death of the 
subscriber". 

The alTairs of the Association were to be managed by 
Trustees, to be elected annual]}- by the shareholders. 

The amount was duly subscribed, and on March 18th, 1842. 
a deed of trust was acknowledged by Daniel Wadsworth. 
transferring the "lot of land" to certain trustees "in trust for 
a corporation intended to be created and organized". 

In the year 1842 Wadsworth Athenseum was incorporated 
by act of the General Assembly, "Generall}' to do all acts 
necessary and proper to carry into full effect the ol)iects and 
purposes for which such land was granted". 

The Trustees to whom Wadsworth deeded the land trans- 
ferred it "unto Wadsworth .\tlien;eum and their successors", 
November 25th. 1842. 

The building was completed in jul\'. 1844. It had "a front 
of 100 feet in length, the center being eighty feet deep and the 
wings each seventy feet." 

At the meeting of the citizens of Hartford held on Septem- 
ber 24th, 1841, "to devise the ways and means of raising a 
fund for the erection of a building on land ])roposed to be 
given by Daniel Wadsworth for that purpose", David Wat- 
kinson was chairman. On December 13th, 1857, David 
Watkinson died. He be([ueathed One Hunch'ed Tliousand 
Dollars to certain Trustees. "Particularly for the purpose of 
establishing in connexion with the Connecticut Historical 
Society a Lil)rary of Reference". Of that sum of One 
Hundred Thousand Dollars. Five Thousand was designated 
"to aid the Connecticut Historical Society in extending their 
division of the Wadsworth Athen.eum * * * or otherwise en- 



15 

larging- their accommodations for said Library of Reference 
in connexion with * * * said Historical Society", the plan for 
such enlargement, etc., to be approved by the Trustees of the 
Library. Fifteen Thousand Dollars was directed to be set 
apart "as a Librarian Fund", the income to be applied to pay 
the salary of a librarian to be "appointed by the Connecticut 
Historical Society with the approval of my [his] Trustees, 
and their successors ***** provided said Society ***** 
set apart a like principal sum of fifteen thousand dollars, the 
income of both which sums", to be "applied to pay the salary 
of such Librarian * * * * or if such Historical Society, instead 
of procuring * * * fifteen thousand dollars * * appropriate and 
cause to be paid an annual sum of not less than one thousand 
dollars to be added to the annual income of the first named 
fifteen thousand dollars * * * both said annual income and 
said annual one thousand dollars * * * * shall be applied to 
the salary * * * ". After certain provisions shall have been 
complied with, it is directed that "The residue of the net 
annual income of the Library Fund [a fund provided in 
Section 4th of Article XHI of Codicil No. 11] shall be applied 
to the purchase of books for a Library of Reference * * to be 
kept in rooms of or in convenient connexion with the Con- 
necticut Historical Society". 

In 1858 the General Assembly passed an act, which was 
approved June 8th of that year, incorporating "by the name of 
The Trustees of the Watkinson Library" certain citizens who 
were named in the will of David Watkinson, and, as also pro- 
vided in the will, as trustees ex officio, — "the Governor of 
Connecticut, the president of the Connecticut Historical 
Society, the president of the Wads worth x\thenaeum, the 
president of The Hartford Young Men's Institute (afterward 
The Hartford Library Association and now The Hartford 
Public Library), and the President of Trinity College." By 
act of the General Assembly approved March 8, 1882, the 
Trustees were "authorized to fill any vacancy in their board by 
electing as one of said Trustees the Mayor of the City of 
Hartford, for the time being and ex officio". 

"On April 1st, 1862, the Connecticut Historical Society 
voted : To accept the bequests contained in the Watkinson 



76 

will, upon the conditions in said will provided ; and also ap- 
pointing * * * a committee to procure plans tor adding to the 
space occupied by said Society in tlie Wadswortli AtheiKeum 
building, or in an extension thereof, to be used for a library 
of reference, in connection with the room of said Society; and. 
for that purpose, to come to an arrangement with the trustees 
of the W'atkinson Library ; the whole to be done with the 
assent of the Wadsworth Athenaeum cor]^oration." The com- 
mittee reported on "April 15th, 1862 * * * that the tinistees of 
the W'atkinson Libran- had purchased the house and grounds 
of the late Daniel Wadsworth. adjoining the land of the 
Wadsworth Athenaeum : that it had conferred with the com- 
mittee of said trustees; * * * Jiad examined two plans for the 
proposed enlargement, and recommended the passage of votes 
which may be summarized as follows :■ — 

That the Connecticut Historical Society proceed to construct 
an addition to its division of the Athen;eum Building; that 
said addition Ix- for the use of the books of the Watkinson 
Library until such time as the whole, or a part thereof, shall 
be needed for the books and collections of the Historical So- 
ciety ; that in that case the said Society will repay to said 
Trustees [of the Watkinson Library] the whole, or a pro- 
portional part, of the moneys expended [of David Watkin- 
son] in constructing such addition, to enable them to erect 
other rooms for the Watkinson Library, in connection with the 
books, etc., of the Historical Society — or this Society would 
'with such repaid moneys", erect said additions for the Wat- 
kinson Library; * * * that the president of the Historical 
Societ}- ])e authorized to execute an agreement, or indenture, 
to the foregoing effect with said Trustees ; and that Calvin 
Dav. Erastus Smith, and J. Hammond Trumbull be authorized 
to arrange the terms and stipulations necessary to connect 
said library with tlie books and collections of the Historical 
Society." 

The report of the Committee was adoptetl. and the votes 
passed Ajiril 15. 1862. ""At the same time the form of an 
indenture, submitted by said Committee and made a part of 
its report, was carried by said adojitioii." The indenture re- 
cites the temis of the bequest by Davi(,l Watkinson * * ""for 



17 

the purpose of establishing a Hbrary of reference in 'perpetual 
connection' with the Historical Society * * * " ^iXiA then 
(quoting Judge Adams), "It was * * * agreed, between the 
said Historical Society, of the first part, and the trustees of 
the Watkinson Library, of the second part, that said party of 
the first part would erect an addition to the Athen;eum liuild- 
ing, extending from the east side thereof to the eastern line 
of the land belonging to said Athen?eum ; said addition to be 
used by said Society and said libraiy of reference for the 
mutual convenience of both, having due regard to their re- 
spective charters, the trust deed of Daniel Wadsworth, and the 
will of said Watkinson. It was further agreed that if the 
Watkinson Library should thereafter erect, on its own land, 
another building for the accommodation of said library of 
reference, then said building should be so constructed as to 
open into the addition hereinbefore provided for, so as to 
make the respective collections of books, etc., inseparably and 
perpetually usable in connection with each other, and that an 
'inseparable union' should exist between the two collections. 
It was also agreed that the Historical Society would appoint 
and pay a librarian as soon as it should be able to collect the 
necessary funds, as contemplated in said Watkinson's will, and 
in the manner therein specified ; said appointment to be sub- 
ject to the approval of said Trustees [of the Watkinson], who 
were to contribute to the payment of said librarian in the 
manner mentioned in said will; the compensation of said li- 
brarian to be such as both said parties should from time to 
time agree upon. Said Trustees [of the Watkinson] further 
agreed to deposit in said addition all the books and collections 
constituting said library of reference. Also, that the said 
Historical Society should always have a prior right to the use 
of said addition, or of any part thereof, whenever it should 
desire and find needful so to do." 

"On May 2, 1862, the Trustees of the Watkinson Library, 
by votes, formally 'accepted, approved, and agreed to' the 
votes of the Historical Society * * * * provided, however, 
that said indenture contain an additional clause binding the 
Historical Society to expend an equal amount of money in the 
constiiiction of other accommodations for said librar\' of 
reference before, and in case, said libraiy be required to vacate 



18 

said addition; otherwise, the Historical Society slmuld repa}- 
to the W'atkinson Library the amount so expended from said 
fund of the Watkinson Library." 

"On May 6, LS62. said votes of tlie Trustees of the Wat- 
kinson Library were adopted by the I fislorical v^cjciety, includ- 
ing said additional clause of the indenture." 

The librarian of the Watkinson Library for many }ears 
was j. Hammond Trumbull. He was lil)rarian also of the 
Connecticut Historical Society. In a letter dated April 12, 
1876. which he addressed to Dr. E. K. Hunt, "Commissioner, 
etc." "in compliance with your [his| recjuest" he stated that 
he was appointed in 1862. In that letter he says further tliat 
"a building was erected adjacent to and directly communi- 
cating with the main hall of the Historical Society, and by 
the purchase of the Wadsworth mansion and grounds adjoin- 
ing the site of the new building, ample provision was made for 
the future enlargement of the [Watkinson] library". "The 
Connecticut Historical Society", he writes, "has a central and 
convenient location on Main Street, in the south wing of the 
Wadsworth AtheUceum. Tlie central division of the Athe- 
naeum is appropriated under tlie trust (\i^i;(\ of tlie founder 

* * * to a (jallery of I'ine Arts; and the north wing, to the 
library and reading rooms of the [Hartford] Young Men's 
Institute ***** l-'oi- the puri)oses of consullation. tlu- W'at- 
kinson and the Historical Society's libraries are virtually one, 
with an aggregate of about forty-three thousand volumes 

* * * ". This in the year 1876. 

Presumably something was then stirring in the minds of 
men. The hrst evidence of action is furnislied in tlie follow- 
ing notes from tlie records of the Connecticut Historical 
Society : — 

"At a month]\- meeting of the Connecticut Historical 
Societ}', held at their rooms, Tuesday evening, ]anu;iry 3. 
1882. Present, j. H. Trumbull, President. 'I'he President 
explained in ])art the contemplated erection of a new building 
for the Watkinson Library, and the founding of a free Pul)lic 
Library and .Museum. The President, C. ]. I lo.idl) and v^. 
W. Adams were a])pointed a committee, to meet committees 
from the other bodies interested, and report to a future 
meeting." 



19 

"At the monthly meeting- of the Connecticut Historical 
Society held at their rooms Tuesday evening, Feb. 7, 1882. 
Voted : To add Dr. Henry Barnard to the Committee 
appointed at the last meeting on the consolidation of the 
Public Libraries." 

"At the annual meeting of the Connecticut Historical 
Society, held in the Hall of the Society, pursuant to notice, 
May 22, 1883, the Committee appointed in January, 1882. to 
meet committees from the Watkinson Library, the Wadsworth 
Athenpeum, and the Hartford Library Association, with refer- 
ence to proposed changes in these organizations looking to the 
establishment of a free public library, made a partial report, 
and was continued, said Committee consisting of the President, 
C. J. Hoadly and S. W. Adams." 

By an Act approved March 14, 1883, the City of Hartford 
was authorized to appropriate "a sum not exceeding one-fifth 
of one mill upon the grand list" for the support of "a free 
public library and art gallery". 

The committees appointed by the four allied organizations 
"with a view to the union of the four institutions * * for 
establishing a Free Public Library and Art Gallery", dated 
their report June 29th, 1883. In this report it w^as recom- 
mended that the Mayor, Aldermen, and Common Council be 
petitioned "to lay a tax for the establishment of the Public 
Library and Art Gallery". According to Judge Adams, the 
report "was prepared b\' the Hon. J. Hammond Trumbull, the 
Chairman of the Joint Committee * * * and substantially 
adopted by the several organizations concerned." 

This report states : — "The stockholders of Wadsworth 
Athenseum hold under the trust deed of Daniel Wadsworth 
the land and building occupied by the Art Gallery, the Con- 
necticut Historical Society and the Hartford Library Associa- 
tion". "The Connecticut Historical Society * * * holds under 
the trust deed of Mr. Wadsworth * * the south division of 
the Athenseum Building and the land east of it, on which the 
building occupied by the Watkinson Library stands." 

"By mutual agreement" the sum of Five Thousand Dollars 
designated by Mr. Watkinson to provide for the enlargement 
of the quarters of the Connecticut Historical Society for the 



accommodation of the Watkinson Library "was expended on 
the building now [1883] occupied by the Watkinson Library, 
the Historical Society reserving their prior right to the use of 
a part or all the new building, and the Trustees of the Wat- 
kinson Library agreeing to vacate it on the payment by the 
Historical Society of an equal amount toward the cost of 
another building." 

After stressing the immediate need of more space, the 
observation is made that — "Fortunately, the necessity was 
foreseen by the Trustees [of the Watkinson] and provision 
was made for it by the purchase of the Wadsworth property 
adjoining the land of the Atheuccum on the east and with a 
frontage on Prospect Street." 

In this report it was proposed "To transfer the present 
Watkinson Library building to the Connecticut Historical 
Society, and to provide for the repa^^^lent by that Society, or 
in their behalf, of the sum (about Five Thousand Dollars) 
received from the Watkinson fund." [expended in building the 
extension for the use of the Watkinson Library.] 

Most of the preceding quotations are from the pamphlet 
published by this Society. December. 1889. containing infor- 
mation gathered and compiled by Judge S. A. Adams, and 
other members of a Committee appointed for the purpose, pur- 
suant to a vote passed by The Connecticut Historical Society. 
July 2nd. 1889. What follows has been gathered from the 
records of the Connecticut Historical Society by Mr. Albert 
C. Bates, Secretary and Librarian of the Society: — 

"At a regular meeting of the Connecticut Historical Society, 
held at the Hall of the Society, pursuant to notice. October 2. 

1883. The president on behalf of the Committee appointed 
with reference to proposed changes in the several organiza- 
tions associated with the Wadsworth Athenaeum, made a

According to the minutes. — "A printed copy of the report 
is inserted in these records." Rut the "printed copy" is not 
there now.

21 

ori,fanizations associated with the Wadsworth Athen?euni. was 
called upon to report. He said that at the request of the other 
mem])ers of the Committee he had drawn up a series of Arti- 
cles of Association ; but as they were still in the hands of some 
members of the Committee for approval, he was unable to 
present them at this meeting." 

At a regular meeting of the Connecticut Historical Society, 
held pursuant to notice in the Hall of the Society, January 6, 
1885, a series of resolutions received from the Trustees of the 
Watkinson Library regarding a plan of union of the organiza-

S. W. Adams of the 'Committee on Union', the resolutions 
were referred for action to the next monthly meeting. 

"At a regular meeting of the Connecticut Historical So- 
ciety, held in the Hall of the Society pursuant to notice.

brary, this and other Societies occupying the Athen?eum 
building * * * " "It was voted: That this Society approve

"Judge Adams, [who represented this Society] remarked 
that with certain minor changes the committee would advise 
the adoption of the contract. He further remarked thai the 
contract was designed to carry out in its provisions, ideas con- 
veyed in a report presented to the Society and adopted by it 
at the meetings in February and March, 1888. The contract 
was then taken up section by section and after amenchiients 
and slight changes was approved. On motion it was voTKu : — 
that John W. Stedman [the Vice President] be authorized to 
sign the name and af^x the seal of the Society to this contract. 
On motion it was voted: — that the report of the Committee

power to make such verbal changes in the contract as may be 
necessary to harmonize the views of the parties thereto." 

The contract was as follows : —

lute direction, control, and care of said property, the bodies 
occupying the same paying such, and only such, ratable share 
of the expense as may be just, and as may be demanded by 



the necessities of the AtheiicTum fund raised for the jjurj^ose. 

4. By action of the Athen?eum or by reservation in con- 
veyances, secure to each of the other corporations suitable 
rights of occupancy, subject, however, to the assignment and 
control of the Athenceum trustees. 

5. Provide that the same number, viz : eleven members of 
the r>oard of Trustees of the Wadsworth Athenseum. the 
number fixed by its charter, shall hereafter continue: but that 
one member of each of the other corporations shall be a mem- 
ber of the P)oard, to be presented by the nomination of the 
respective corporations.

And whereas said plan has been in part carried out by the 
subscription of Four Hundred Thousand Dollars to the Wads- 
worth Athenrcum for the purposes named in Article 2 of said 
Plan, and said Athenaeum proposes to enter into the work of 
building an addition to its present building and of changing 
tlie internal arrangements of the present building so as to 
enable the several corporations to serve the public with more 
efficiency. 

And whereas the Historical Society entered into an agree- 
ment with the Trustees of the Watkinson Library, which was 
acknowledged May 14, 1862, and was recorded in Hartford 
Town Records Vol. 109, pages 160 to 165. by which the His- 
torical Society agreed to expend I'ive Thousand Dollars, which 
was given by David Watkinson, upon the building now occu- 
pied by said Watkinson I^ibrary, and the Library agreed when 
it left said room, to provide accommodations on the adjoining 
land, which new building should be in convenient connexion 
with the books, manuscripts and collections of the said His- 
torical Society, and the Historical Society agreed to pay the 
Watkinson Library Five Thousand Dollars whenever it pro- 
vided its own building, 

And whereas the AthentCum has bound itself by a contract 
with said Watkinson Lil)rary to provide for it room in a new 
building to be built upon said adjoining land and said Library 
has agreed to occupy said new building so that the present 
room now occupied by the Watkinson Librar\- shall be left 
free for the use of the Historical Societv. 



25 

Now therefore: — 

First. The Historical Society agrees to and with the 
Athenseum in consideration of the benefits and advantages to 
it arising from the said subscription, and of the promises and 
agreements herein entered into by said Athenaeum, to carry 
into efifect all the several provisions of said Plan hereinbefore 
recited, that is to say: The Historical Society hereby agrees 
to convey to the Athenaeum by a suitable and proper deed of 
conveyance and hereby does assign, quitclaim and convey to 
it. in fee simple, all the rights, title and interest of the Con- 
necticut Historical Society in and to the real estate and build- 
ing of said Athenaeum in the City of Hartford, except the 
permanent right to the occupancy of such portion of the build- 
ings now erected or hereafter to be erected upon the Athe- 
naeum land as shall be reasonably adequate for the purposes 
and uses of the Historical Society, not less in space than the 
rooms in the south division of the building now occupied by 
said Society, which occupancy is subject, however, to the 
assignment and control of the trustees of the Athena?um which 
is to have the direction and care of said property. 

Second. The Athenaeum hereby agrees that for the time 
being the Historical Society shall occupy its present rooms in 
the South Division of the Athenaeum Building, and the upper 
room of the Watkinson Libraiy when it shall be vacated by 
the said Library's occupancy of a space in a new building 
adjoining the present building on the East; and, furthermore, 
whenever this contract goes into efifect, to light, heat, keep in 
cleanly order and repair said rooms in the South Division 
which are for the time being so occupied by the Historical 
Society. 

Whenever said Athenaeum desires to move the Connecticut 
Historical Society from its present rooms, it will place it in 
convenient though not necessarily immediate connection with 
the rooms which may be occupied by the Watkinson Library 
and give it the exclusive use of as much space as its existing 
and prospective wants reasonably require, and light, heat, care 
for and keep in repair said new quarters, the intent of this 
plan being that a permanent home for said Historical Society 
and reasonably adequate provision for its books, manuscripts 



and collections sliall al\va}'S he furnished to it on tlie land of 
the Athenceum. 

Third. The Historical iSociety a.i,n"ees that the execution 
hy the Athenceum of the ])rovisions of its contract with the 
Trustees of the Watkinson Lihrary. dated April 16, 1890. shall 
be regarded by the Historical Society as in full execution (jf 
and compliance with the terms of said contract of May 14, 
1862, so far forth as those terms relate to an addition to the 
present building and the connection of said addition with the 
rooms of the Historical Society, and further agrees that when 
said new building shall be provided and occupied b\' the Wat- 
kinson Lil)rary the obligation of the Historical Societ}- to pay 
the Lil)rary I'ive Thousand Dollars shall not cease or be 
discharged but shall remain an existing indelttedness. 

Fourth. Whereas it is expected 1)}' the Athena'um that 
from time to time it will receive additif)ns to its present fund 
of I-\)ur Hundred Tliousand T^r)llars either through gifts, lega- 
cies, or !))• annu.'d a])i)ro])riations frf)m the town or city of 
Hartford, and that said Athenaeum will be in a pecuniary con- 
dition to distrii)ute annualh' a sum derived from its annual 
income arising from said additional gifts (jr appro])riations 
among the corporations or organizations within its l)uilding 
whicli need it. said Athen;eum agrees to give and furnish to 
said Historical Society such portion of said sum as may be 
considered by the Board of Trustees of the Athenreum equita- 
ble, in view of the needs of the varicnis institutions within its 
building. If any funds are or shall be given to the Athen?eum 
for the exclusive use and benefit of said Historical Society, it 
agrees to care for, manage and appro])riate such funds in 
accordance with the terms of the trust upon which the funds 
are or sliall be respectively given. 

I'ifth. Said Athenaeum agrees to elect annually a member 
of the Historical Society upon the Board of Trustees or offi- 
cers of the .\then<-eum." The Contract was signed April 29th, 
1890. 

]^)y Amendment to the Charter of Wadsworth AtheUceum 
approved March 13th, 1925, the fifth article above is so 
changed as to read that the board of trustees of Wadsworth 
Athen?eum "may include onr member of * * * * The Connecti- 
cut Historical Societ\- ***''. 



27 

"At the Annual jMeetini;;' of the Connecticut Historical So- 
ciety, held IMay 25th, 19()9, Francis H. Parker reported the 
following- contract entered into l)et\\een the Connecticut His- 
torical Society and the Wadsworth Atheuceum, which contract 
was ordered to be entered at length upon the Society's 
records : — 

Whereas, under the provisions of a former contract be- 
tween the parties hereto, dated the 29th da}- of April, 1890, 
certain rooms in tlie S(Hit]i Division of the Wadsworth Athe- 
UcTum building were assigned and allotted to the Historical 
Society by the AtheUceum, which rooms said Historical Society 
has since occupied : 

And Wliereas, in and 1)_\' said contract it was and is provided 
as follows : 

Whenever said AtheUceum desires to move the Connecticut 
Historical Society from its present rooms, it will ])lace it in 
convenient though not necessarily immediate connection with 
the rooms which may be occupied by the W'atkinson Library 
and give it the exclusive use of as much space as its existing 
and prospective wants reasonably require, and light, heat, care 
for and keep in repair said new quarters, the intent of this 
plan being that a permanent home for said Historical Society 
and reasonably adequate provision for its books, manuscripts 
and collections shall always be furnished to it on the land of 
the Athena?um. 

And Whereas, owing to certain alterations whicli are now 
being made in said Wadsworth AtheUceum Building, it be- 
comes and is necessary, and said AtheUceum now^ desires to 
move said Historical Society from a portion of the rooms now 
Occupied by it, and said Athen?eum has offered to give to said 
Historical Society the exclusive use of certain other rooms in 
said Athenreum which will be in convenient connection with 
the rooms which will be occui)ie(l by the W^atkinson Library, 
which new rooms, together witli a part of the old rooms, will 
provide at least as much space as it has occu])ie(l and will com- 
prise as much space as its present and prospective wants will 
reasonably require for some years to come, so that reasonably 
adequate provisions for its books, manuscripts and collections 
will be furnished. 



Xow in consideration of the premises and in consideration 
of the mutual covenants of the parties hereto it is hereby 
as^reed : 

l"'irst. The Historical Society hereby surrenders and re- 
leases to the Wadsworth Athenaeum all of the rooms and space 
of which it has hitherto had the exclusive use under said con- 
tract dated the 29th of April. 1890. as aforesaid, except that 
portion of the southwesterly front corner room in the second 
story of said Athenaeum Building, which will extend easterly 
to the hallway to be constructed leading to the Colt and 
Morgan Building and the door space and room over said pro- 
posed hallway, and it also releases the rights and privileges in 
the cellar storeroom under said southwesterly front comer 
room hereinafter provided for. 

And in lieu of the rooms and space hereby released, the 
Historical Society hereby accepts the two other front rooms 
and the north stack room in the second story of said Athe- 
naeum Building as and when reconstiiicted according to the 
present plans as submitted to said Historical Society, with 
accommodations for its newspaper tiles in the new Morgan 
I)uilding or elsewhere, and the storeroom in the northwest 
corner of the cellar in the Athenaeum Building, or proper 
equivalents therefor as hereinafter provided. 

Second. In consideration whereof, the Athenaeum hereb}' 
assigns to said Historical Society the use of the following 
rooms and space in said Athenaeum Building, to wit, those 
certain three front rooms and the adjoining north room in the 
second story of said Athenanmi Building, which are to be 
largely reconstructed according to said plans which have been 
submitted to said Historical Society. 

Third. The Athenaeum also agrees to assign from time to 
time to said Historical Society proper accommodations for its 
newspaper files, either in the. basement of the new Morgan 
Building, or elsewhere ; that it will continue for the present to 
allow the Historical Society to continue to occupy the store- 
room in the so-called Annex Building ; and also the store-room 
in the northwest corner of the cellar of the Athenaeum Build- 
ing, and that hereafter if it [The Athenaeum] shall desire to 
change the occupancy of any of said rooms it will assign, so 



far as it properly can, to said Historical Society eciually con- 
venient and spacious rooms in other parts of its buildings. 

Fourth. Said Wadsworth Athenseum hereby agrees to 
"light, heat, care for and keep in repair" the rooms and space 
now assigned to said Connecticut Historical Society as afore- 
said. 

• Fifth. It is hereby mutually agreed that this contract shall 
be a modification of the contract hitherto executed by and be- 
tween the parties hereto (late<l the 29th of April, 1890, as 
aforesaid, and that as modified hereby the other provisions 
thereof, mutatis mutandis, shall apply hereto, and especially 
with the resei^ved right hereafter, if found necessary, to move 
said Historical Society from the rooms now assigned to it, but 
subject to the same conditions as are expressed in said contract 
of April 29th, 1890." 

"In Witness Whereof, the Connecticut Historical Society 
by Francis H. Parker, Chairman of the Library Committee, 
he being especially empowered thereunto", and a committee 
of the Wadsworth Athenaum, set their hands and the seals 
of the respective Corporations to the document on the 22nd 
day of April, 1909. Francis H. Parker, Chairman of the 
Lil)rary Committee, was "empowered thereunto" by a vote 
passed, — "At a regular meeting of the Connecticut Historical 
Society held pursuant to notice in the libraiy, March 2, 1909, 
with President Hart in the chair and twenty members 
present." 

"Corresponding Secretary W. DeLoss Love offered the 
following resolutions: — 

Whereas the Wadsworth Athenseum desires to move the 
Connecticut Historical Society from part of the rooms now 
occupied by it and to make provision for said Society and its 
books, manuscripts, and collections in other rooms in the 
Athenaeum Building when the changes therein are completed. 

Now, therefore, voted: — That the Library Committee of 
this Society be and it is hereby authorized and empowered to 
arrange such a readjustment with the trustees of said Athe- 
naeum as will secure adequate provision for the books, manu- 
scripts and collections of the Society ; and with power also to 
release and surrender in the name of this Society to the 



30 

Athenaeum the portions of the buildin"^ now occupied l)y the 
Society in exchange tor the new accommodations to be pro- 
vided for tlie Society. The resokition was unanimousl\- 
adopted by vote affirmative." 

Wherefore it appears that the careful plans of David W'at- 
kinson, as set forth in articles XTI and XIII of Codicil Xo. 11 
of his will, "])articularly for the purpose of establishing in 
connexion with the Connecticut Historical Society, a Library 
of Reference * * * to be kept in the rooms of. or in convenient 
connexion with the Connecticut Historical Society" are re- 
spected, and restated, atfirmed and reatftrmed in sundr}" verbal 
guises, in act of incorporation, in contract, indenture, agree- 
ment and readjustment, and. fmally. in this contract of 1909. 
as well as in the contract of 19()(). 

The advantages of physical union of the two libraries from 
the standpoints of economy of investment and convenience in 
use, have l)een pointed out at dififerent times, in various places 
and b\- many persons. The "inseparable union" as the inden- 
ture of 1862 characterizes it, is touched upon in Dr. Trumbull's 
letter of 1876 with an intimation of approval. Lsers of the 
collections have commended the arrangement, through the 
intervening years to the present time, when the two libraries 
have come to possess a vast collection oi literary and other 
historical material of great volume, and in some respects 
priceless and unique. Their value from material and artistic 
points of view calls urgentl\' for a sanctuary [)ermanent and 
safe. 

In January. 1926, at the request of the president of 
Athenaeum, a committee was appointed, consisting of the 
Society's president. Dr. George C. F. Williams, Charles G. 
Woodward and Martin W\dles, "to meet similar committees 
from Wadsworth Athenaeum. The Walkinson Library. The 
Hartford Public Library, to confer regarding ])lans for 
the future development of these institutions". Thus far the 
committee has nothing to report but conversations, .\everlhe- 
less. the cause has somewhat advanced. Moreover, the gift of 
the late George Edward Hoadley to establish a building fund 
and his l)e(|uest for a hre-proof building "to be used and occu- 
pied in whdU- or in part by the Connecticut Historical Societ}"" 



— Ji — ■ 

furnish reason f(M' tlie hcliet" that llie providini,'' of a suitable 
structure will not be long delayed. These gifts of Mr. Hoad- 
ley with the bequest of Silas Chapman, Jr., will go far toward 
establishing the Historical Society, in connection with its 
younger associates on this ground, upon a firmer and ])roader 
foundation, so, calculated to yield a greater usefulness to a 
greater Hartford, surpassing even the fine vision of those 
benevolent worthies of the last century, who wrought earnest- 
ly and gave generously to the increasing advantage of later 
residents in this fortunate city. 

George C. F. Williams, 

President.

Mr. President and Members of the Society: 

In presenting^ my thirty-fifth report as librarian, it becomes 
increasingly difficult to offer something that shall be of in- 
terest and at the same time not to repeat what has been said 
in previous reports. Statistics and individual items var}-; but 
otherwise the reports, like the general course of events in the 
librar}-, pursue the even tenor of their way from year to year. 
This even tenor in one respect is most discouraging. Xo re- 
lief is in sight from the present crowded and somewhat 
chaotic conditions of our librar}-. Each year these conditions 
become worse, and proper service to our readers more difficult. 
So far as your present librarian is concerned, the prospective 
new librar\- building and consequent relief from present 
conditions seem further away than ever before. 

The regular duties pertaining to the library" have taken up 
so much time that little work has been done in preparing the 
records of the Particular Court for printing, and the volume 
has not yet been placed in the printer's hands. The only 
publication issued during the year was our annual report, a 
pamphlet of sixty-two pages, a copy of which was sent to each 
member of the Society. 

The number of readers during the year was 3485. This is 
an increase of more than six per cent over the number for 
last year. 

It is with a feeling of sorrow that I refer at this time to 
the recent death of Francis H. Parker, one of the senior 
members of the Society, a member of our Librar}* Committee 
for almost thirtA--two years and chairman of that committee 
for almost thirty years. His service to the Society in this 
connection was noteworthy, and his place on that committee 
will not easily be filled. As my immediate superior, I miss 
his presence and his advice. 



Our recently deceased life member Newman Hunger ford 
has presented to the Society the collection of American coins 
which he has been many years in gathering; also a beautiful 
antique mirror in its original elaborate gilt frame which was 
a part of the wedding outfit of his grandmother. Orinda 
(Williams) Catlin. in 1799. 

Miss Alice M. Gay has given us the interesting collection 
she had gathered of picture post cards of about 800 American 
library buildings; and Miss Mary E. Manwaring has given us 
a collection of about 200 cards, nearly all of them Hartford 
views. 

\'ice-President Newton C. Brainard has given to the 
Society the remaining copies of the Civil War Diary of 
Charles H. Lynch, 18th Conn. Vol., 1862-1865, which was 
pul)lished by him in 1915. Proceeds from the sale of these 
copies are to be added to the Lucy A. Brainard Book Fund. 
Mr. Brainard has also added to a previous gift by him, a few 
more copies of the Brainard Genealogy. It may be noted that 
the principal of the Lucy A. Brainard Book Fund has already 
been increased more than $425 through the sale of books 
presented for that purpose. The total, derived from the in- 
come of various funds, now available annually for the 
purchase of books, amounts to almost $600. 

Among books of special Connecticut interest that have come 
to hand may be mentioned histories of Westport by Birge, of 
Cornwall by Starr, of Woodstock by Bowen, of Danielson by 
Arnold, of Enfield by Sheldon, of Manchester by Spiess & 
Bidwell, Wilton church anniversary. Families of ancient New 
Haven, vol. 3, Ecclesiastical shields by Symonds, Connecticut 
Republican Magazine, no. 1, printed in Suffield in 1802, Sketch 
of Abel Buell by Wroth. Other publications of interest in- 
clude Benjamin Trumbull's Compendium of the Indian Wars 
of New England written in 1767 and now first published by 
our member Charles A. Goodwin, who has presented a copy 
to the library; Seals of maritime New England by L. F. 
Middlebrook; \'irkus' Abridged compendium of American 
genealogy, vol. 2; Rutherford B. Hayes' Diarv' and letters in 
five volumes ; the George Rogers Clark papers ; the Sir 
William Johnson papers ; the special proclamation and pro- 
gramme for Nathan Hale day, September 22, 1926; from 



34 

Charles T. Wells a rare "Plan of Kennebeck & Sagadahock 
Rivers & Country adjacent", engraved and printed by Thomas 
Johnston of Boston in 1754. We are continuing by purchase 
the \'ictoria History of the Counties of England, about 70 
volumes of which were presented by our late \'ice-President, 
James J. Goodwin. 

The interest of our president, Dr. George C. F. Williams, 
in everything pertaining to the American Revolution is well- 
known. Due to his extended study of this subject, he 
gathered many photostat copies of printed material, the origi- 
nals of which are very rare and could not be secured by him. 
These copies, to the number of more than 225, he has now- 
presented to the Society. They consist, for the most part, of 
broadsides and leaflets and they deal not only with the Revo- 
lution itself, but with the preliminary doings relating particu- 
larly to the Xon-importation Agreement and the Stamp Act. 
Among them, to mention only a few that are of interest, are: 
An address to the merchants of Philadelphia requesting them 
to join the non-importation agreement; request in 1770 that 
purchases be not made from certain P>oston merchants who 
had not obeyed the non-importation agreement ; the original 
of the song Yankee Doodle beginning "blather and I went 
down to camp" ; address to the commissioners appointed by 
the East India Company for the sale of tea in America, in 
opposition to such sale ; address to the freemen of America in 
relation to the taxation of tea ; address to the Free-born Sons 
of Liberty in Massachusetts ; poem addressed to the tea-drink- 
ing ladies of New York; ode on the death of the five young 
men who were "murthered" in the Boston Massacre ; procla- 
mation of Governor Jonathan Trumbull of Connecticut 
forbidding the exportation of grain out of the colony ; reso- 
lutions adopted by the Sons of Liberty of New York; report 
of a meeting of delegates from the towns of New London 
and Windham Counties in 1774 to consult for the common 
safety; petition of the merchants of the city of London to 
Parliament in January 1775 in favor of America; address of 
the city of London to the King in favor of the Americans, 
presented to His Majesty in June 1775; proclamation of 
Major General William Howe, calling upon the Americans 
to be loyal to the King; address in French by the Continental 



Congress to the inhal)itants of Canada in January 1776; 
proclamation by Governor Truml)ull in May 1776, establish- 
ing an embargo against the exportation of numerous articles; 
ofifer of a reward for the capture of Major Christopher 
French, a British officer, who had escaped from Hartford 
jail. December 1776; address of the Continental Congress to 
the inhabitants of United States, May 1778; proclamation by 
Governor Trumbull, December 1778, to the inhabitants of 
Connecticut, exhorting them to religion and virtue; act of the 
xAsseml)ly of Connecticut, April 1779, for ascertaining the 
quantity of grain and flour which may be supplied to the 
army; address of Ira Allen to the inhabitants of \''ermont, 
July 1779; act of the Connecticut Assembly in October 1779, 
for raising 4000 troops to aid General Washington ; declara- 
tion of Governor Trumbull. March 1781. exhorting the people 
to consider the invaluable liberties for which they are con- 
tending; proclamation dated October 25. 1781, and printed in 
New London, announcing proposals from Lord Cornwallis for 
a capitulation; proclamation by the President of Pennsylvania, 
April 1783, declaring a cessation of arms by land and sea 
between the United States and His Britanic Majesty. 

In 1895, 1897 and 1898, Miss Helen Evertson Smith of 
New York City and Sharon, Conn., presented to this Society 
a large amount of correspondence of her grandfather, John 
Cotton Smith, who was governor of this state from 1812 to 
1817. which period included the time of the War of 1812. 
Miss Smith died a few months since and in accordance with 
her expressed desires, further material relating to her grand- 
father and publications from his library have been presented 
to the Society. 

The manuscripts recently received consist of more than 250 
letters covering the period of the War of 1812; also about 675 
books, pamphlets and broadsides, about 100 of which are 
duplicates. These books and pamphlets are miscellaneous in 
their nature, comprising early government documents, ad- 
dresses, orations, speeches, sermons, reports of various kinds, 
biographies, catalogues, religious controversies, pamphlets 
upon the subjects of slavery-, temperance, and Connecticut 
history, including a number of early Connecticut imprints. 



36 

Amon^ the pamphlets are many that are of more than ordi- 
nary interest and the whole forms an exceedingly valuable 
collection. 

Accompanying these is a portrait in crayon of Governor 
jolm Cotton Smith drawn l)y Charles R. J- F. de Saint Memin. 
'I'his is a remarkably tine exam])lc of Saint Memin's work and 
forms a distinguished addition to our collection of portraits 
of Connecticut worthies. 

Too much credit cannot be given in this connection to Rev. 
William 15. Johnson of Norfolk, through whose kindness and 
efforts some parts of this collection were preserved from 
destruction and secured to the Society. 

Miss Caroline M. Ilewins, a member of this Society and for 
many years the honored Librarian of the Hartford Public 
Library, had for a long period gathered books i)ublished for 
children and voung people. Her interest in children made the 
gathering of such publications a natural consequence and she 
took great delight in forming and constantly adding to this 
collection. 

L'nder the terms of her will, these books and pamphlets 
were given to this Society. They number more than 3650 
volumes and pamphlets and in addition there are about 1000 
unbound numbers of magazines published for children. Among 
the pamphlets are about 750 which may be strictly classed as 
juvenile juiblicaticms. They are the small pamphlets issued 
for the amusement and instruction of young children. Many 
of these are of much interest for their place of publication, 
name of publisher or for the illustrations that the}' contain, 
as well as l)eing classics in children's literature. The whole 
lot forms a remarkable collection of books and pamphlets for 
children and young people and will place this Library well to 
the fore among libraries containing similar collections. 

Accompanving these children's books were about 100 
volumes of Annuals, (jift I'ooks. and similar i)ublications 
wliich were so p()])ular nearl\' a century ago. These supple- 
ment the extensive collection of such books formed by ]\Iiss 
Hewins and presented to the Society several years since. 

Mrs. Charles L. W. Pettee of Hartford, has presented us 
with a collection of about 90 volumes relating to the Sweden- 
borg faith and beliefs. They include many volumes of the 



writings of Emanuel Swedenborg, books relating to him and 
books published by or relating to the "New Church" and its 
beliefs. While this Society does not make a point of gathering 
religious works, such a collection as this upon so interesting 
a person as Swedenborg, is a worthy addition to its Library. 

Mrs. Harriet Day Hansel has presented us with a portrait 
of her great uncle, William Hungerford, Esq., painted by 
George F. Wright. Mr. Hungerford, who resided in Hart- 
ford for the greater part of his life, was a prominent and 
perhaps the most learned lawyer in the state. He died June 
15, 1873 in the eighthy-seventh year of his age. 

Printed genealogies of the following families have been 
acquired during the year: Atkins, Rartlett, Bassett Ancestry, 
Bates, Bicknell, Blackney-Sabin Ancestry, Bond printed in 
1826, Bosworth, Brackett, Burch, Burr or Bure, Burton, 
Busby. Castle Ancestry, Coleman, Covel, Denio, Eddy, Elwell, 
Flag, Frisbee. Frost, Gilmore Ancestry, Greene, Guild, 
Haskell, Hatch, Hawes, Hedge, Hedges, Ingersoll, Johnes, 
Johnson Ancestry, Eeach, Ludington & Saltus, Miller, Mower, 
Olds, Olmsted, Peck & Adams, Putnam, Ramsden, Reynolds, 
Smith, Sole or Soule, Stackpole, Stone. Stowe, Tennant, 
Tenney Ancestry, Thrall, Tower, Trumbull, Welles, Wheldon, 
Wynkoop. 

Twelve additions have been made to our unexcelled collec- 
tion of eighteenth century Connecticut imprints. They are of 
the dates of 1762 (2), 1776, 1781, 1784, 1785, 1789, 1790, 
1792, 1795, 1796, 1799. Several of these are, so far as your 
librarian is aware, unique copies. In this connection it may be 
of interest to note that your librarian has made record of about 
770 books and pamphlets printed in Connecticut during the 
eighteenth century which are not noted in J. Hammond 
Trumbull's "List" published in 1904. This "List" contains 
a little over 1700 titles. Of those noted in Trumbull's "List" 
our library possesses about 1200, and of those recorded since 
the publication of that work, our library possesses about 250. 
These figures do not take into account session laws or broad- 
sides, of both of which the Society has good collections. 

Due in part to the receipt of the collection of books and 
pamphlets for children and young people gathered by Miss 
Hewins, our accession of printed material for the year is un- 



38 

usually large. The gifts number 3301 volumes, 1786 pamph- 
lets and 183 miscellaneous items. The purchases were 162 
xolumes. 463 pani])hlets and three miscellaneous. This makes 
a total of 3463 volumes, 2249 i)ami)hlets and 1S6 miscella- 
neous; or a grand total of 5898 items. In addition to these are 
the manuscripts, some groups of printed items each of which 
could not he readily designated other than as a "lot" (such as 
alxnit KXK) scattering numbers of magazines for children in 
the Hewins collection) and sundry articles other than printed 
or manuscrijjt matter. 

The following ])urchases have been made with income from 
the various funds: I'rainard fund sixteen volumes. Hoadly 
fund fourteen volumes. P)oardnian fund four volumes, Russell 
fund three volumes and four pamphlets. All copies of the 
Goldthwaite Genealogy have now been sold, and the expendi- 
ture of the balance received for them in the jnirchase of books 
for tile li]irar\- will end the "( loldtlnvaite Fund." so-called; 
although it will not end our pleasant recollections of Aliss 
Charlotte (joldthwaite.

president's Cf^^re5S 



During the last }ear tliirty-eiyht persons have been elected 
to active membership; one annual member has become a life 
member; nine, including one life member, have died; seven 
have resigned, and a few have been dropped for non-payment 
of (lues. Our present memlx-rship, the largest in our histor}', 
is live hundred and forty-two; composed of twenty members 
ex officio, two of whom are also on our active membership 
roll ; five hundred and twenty-two active members, of whom 
thirty are members for life, one corresponding and one 
honorary member. 

Through the removal of Richard 'SI. G. Potter to Boston the 
Society has lost a valuable worker, as he was the active and 
efficient cliairman of the Committee on ^lonthly Papers. 

The nine members who have died during the year are: 

William B. Clark, for many years President of The 
Aetna Insurance Company, admitted in October, 1890, 
died August 6th, 1927. 

Hlxry Marshall SpERRY of Hartford, a prominent banker, 
admitted May 1906, died February 21, 1928. 

Mary Hall, of Hartford, a life member, an attorney, and 
well known for her philanthropic work, especially in 
connection with the Good Will Club, admitted in Octo- 
ber, 1890, died November 15th, 1927. 

Asahel Johnson Wright, of Hartford, long cminected 
with the State Board of Education, admitted in Xovem- 
l)er, 1904, died August 18th, 1927. 

William F. HennEY, a prominent attornc}- and sometime 
mayor of Hartford, admitted in May, 1907, died Febru- 
ary 7th, 1928. 

Meigs Heywood WhaplES, a prominent citizen and for 
many years a banker in Hartford, admitted November, 
1889, died May 15th, 1928. 



Charles Frederick Brooker of Ansonia, a man well 
known in business and politics and a generous philan- 
thropist, admitted in December, 1920, died December 
20th, 1926. 

Bertram G. Work of Xew York City, President of the 
Goodrich Rubber Company, admitted in February, 
1922, died August 31, 1927.' 

Harry Sidons Mowbray of Washington, a distinguished 
artist, admitted in February, 1912, died January 13th, 
1928. 

Some of the activities of the Society noted by the Recording 
Secretary are that "the Society made protest against the pro- 
posal to change the name of the plot of ground now known as 
Lafayette Square. 

"The President of the Society spoke at the January meet- 
ing on the problem of a new building for the Society. 

"The President and ^Ir. Godard reported upon the meeting 
of the American Historical Association held in Washington, 
and the endowment fund now being raised by the Association. 
The President also spoke criticising the present tendency of 
some writers on American History to deprecate the acts and 
persons of our early settlers and patriots. 

"George H. Cohen, Chairman of a committee appointed by 
the Hartford Chamber of Commerce to prepare and publish a 
list of places and objects of historical interest and of public 
monuments and other memorials in Hartford, requested the 
interest and assistance of this Society and its members in this 
work." 

The monthly papers presented have been : 

At the October meeting, Professor William E. Buckley of 
the Hartford Public High School, "The Hartford Con- 
vention." 

At the November meeting, Rev. Quincey Blakely of Farm- 
ington, "Some Contrasts of One Hundred and Fifty 
Years as Illustrated in the Annals of Farmington." 

At the December meeting, Rev. Warren S. Archibald, 
"Jonathan Edwards." 



At the January meeting, Professor William C. Willoughby, 
"Race Relationships; a Study in I'undamental Princi- 
ples." 

At the February meeting, Charles E. Goodspeed of Boston, 
"Some P'elicities of Book Selling." 

At the March meeting. Professor Frank Cole Babbitt, Ph.D., 
"The Epic of America." 

At the April meeting, Charles J. P)ennett, "Quaint and Odd 
Corners of Connecticut." 

At the Ala}- meeting. William ]\. Goodwin, "The Mistory of 
Saybrook." 

In these annual addresses, which the President of the 
Society is required by its by-laws to "provide", the urgency of 
constructing a fireproof building for the preservation of the 
Society's priceless historical treasures has been mentioned 
many times. At length funds are in hand which are nearly, or 
quite adequate for this i)urpose. Amounts given or bequeathed 
to the Society, designated for the erection of a fireproof 
building, with their accumulations, have reached a total of 
approximately $850,000. 

No definite progress, however, has been made toward pro- 
viding the structure so desperately needed, for several reasons. 
One is tliat the Connecticut Historical Society owns no land 
here, and another is that it has a permanent right of tenancy 
bestowed in the trust deed given by Daniel W'adsworth, 
wherein he specified that one-third of the l)uilding to be 
erected should be occupied by the Connecticut Historical 
Society. Obviously, then, for the Society to abandon this 
place would not be in accord with the intention of Daniel 
Wadsworth in giving the land, nor would it l)e in accord witli 
the purpose of David Watkinson. who directed in making his 
generous gift for founding the Watkinson Library that the 
Tibrarv sliould be maintained in physical associatioii willi the 
rooms of the Connecticut Historical Society. On account of 
ethical considerations, therefore, as well as for those of expedi- 
ency, it has seemed im])roper for tlie Connecticut Historical 
Society to contemplate moving to another site, and members of 
the Society who have expressed their views on the subject 
have without exception held this opinion. 



J3 

The initiative in planning for a suitable building here rests 
entirely with the trustees of the Wadsworth Atheneum, who 
have title to the real estate. Precipitate action is inadvisable 
in a project of such magnitude and with so many complications 
as appear in the problem of providing suitable accommodations 
for the several organizations grouped together on this ground, 
and thus it is that no definite arrangement has yet been made. 
One plan that might permit prompt action on the part of the 
Connecticut Historical Society, which seems not entirely 
chimerical is that the Society exchange funds for possession 
of the remainder of the original Atheneum Building, and then 
proceed to convert it into a fireproof structure. Action in 
some way is urgent, not only for the safe-keeping of the 
present possessions of the Historical Society, but also for the 
purpose of removing an obstacle to the making of more gifts 
by persons who may be deterred from transferring valuable 
things to the present rooms of the Society by fear of the fire 
hazard which now exists. 

George C. F. Williams, 

President.

"ixhxaxxans Kcport. 



Mr. President and Members of the Society: 

Every thing that can be said concerning the crowded condi- 
tion of our rooms and the pressing and continually increasing 
need for better facilities and more room for our library and 
other treasures has already been said, and I will forbear 
further comment on the subject. 

As has from time to time been the case in previous years, 
man_\- words in praise of the library have been heard from our 
readers during the year. One reader from the capital city of 
another Xew England state said recently, that she found his- 
torical books relating to her own state on our shelves which 
she could not find in the libraries of her home city. Your 
librarian assumes to himself no special credit for these re- 
marks, beyond the fact that it has been his aim for years to 
consistantly follow a certain line in the matter of purchases 
for the library. The foundation for a good historical library 
was laid many years ago and we have grown with time, as 
facilities and funds would j)ermit. The addition during recent 
years of a large amount of genealogical material in manuscript 
has added much to the usefulness of the library, as well as 
greatly increasing the labor necessar}- to care for it. 

The number of readers during the year was 3296. This is 
slightly less than the number for the preceding year ; but is 
equal to the average for tlie three years previous to that. 
Some other libraries have noted a decrease in the numl)cr of 
readers during the past year. The seasonal and climatic 
variations from year to year ai)pear to have an effect upon the 
reading public. 

During the year now closing there have been no large gifts 
of books or pamphlets, such as came during the previous year 
from Miss Hewin's estate, and in consequence the total of our 
accessions for the year seems by comparison to be very small. 
We have received by gift 531 volumes, 424 pamphlets and 149 



miscellaneous; by purchase we have acquired 132 volumes, 240 
pamphlets and five miscellaneous. This makes a total of 663 
volumes, 664 pamphlets and 154 miscellaneous; and a grand 
total of 1481 items. Among the purchases are five volumes 
credited to the William F. J. Boardman fund, six to the Lucy 
A. Brainard fund, five to the Goldthwaite fund and seven to 
the Charles J. Hoadly fund. In addition to the above 
accessions are the numerous manuscripts listed on the pages 
which follow and a number of historical objects, the more 
important of which will be mentioned.

Several of tin- manuscrij^ts deserve more tluin [)a.ssinij; 
notice. The Kinney family .y^enealosjy is extensive and very 
carefully compiled and arranij^ed, the typewritten manuscript 
fillini;^ five boxes, each four inches deep — this in addition to 
the first hand-written draft and to the numerotis cojiies of 
records and note books from which it was compiled. Unfor- 
tunately the fi^enealosry appears to be incomplete, some of the 
lines not beinj^^ carried out. Whether !Mrs. Osgood had failed 
to compile these lines, or whether some portions of her manu- 
script were lost at the time of her death, will probably never 
be known. 



The Beach genealogical manuscript is extensive and evi- 
dently represents years of painstaking labor by its compiler 
Joseph P. Beach, the able historian of Cheshire. 

Genealogies of the Hungerford, Catlin and other families 
were received from the estate of Newman Hungerford. 

Copies of Middletown vital records and numerous gene- 
alogies in manuscript compiled by Edwin Stearns, a former 
vice-president of the Society, which were placed with us some 
years since as a deposit, have been purchased recently. Since 
that time Ada AI. Stearns, a relative of Edwin, and a member 
of the Society, has presented us with his correspondence, con- 
sisting of hundreds of letters and documents covering nearly 
half a century previous to the close of the Civil War. Mr. 
Stearns held important state offices, was interested in the stone 
quarries at Portland and was prominent in politics. 

The letter addressed to the officer commanding the British 
party which burned the shipping at Essex is quaint and 
contains interesting historical information. 

A notable deposit received from Joseph K. Hooker, tnjstee, 
of Hartford is a thick volume of manuscript containing on 
sixty-eight pages memoranda of a religious or ecclesiastical 
nature in the handwriting of Rev. Thomas Hooker, one of the 
founders and the first minister of Hartford. His title for the 
volume reads "Miscellaneorum liber. Severall things gathered 
out of severall authors according as they were borrowed & 
read over." The volume also contains much writing believed 
to be by Rev. Samuel Hooker of Farmington, son of Rev. 
Thomas, and many entries of Hooker family records. It is to 
be regretted that in the past a few leaves have been cut out 
and presented to different societies or persons. The inference 
after examining the book is that the entries by Rev. Thomas 
Hooker were made before he came to America. 

Other deposits include the original record of burials in 
Xorth Canton cemetery, 1754-1855; and the silver communion 
service of Immanual Congregational Church, formerly the 
Pearl Street Church, of Hartford, consisting of fourteen 
pieces. This service is about seventy-five years old. 

Among curious and rare publications that have come to 
hand mav be mentioned a Life of Abraham Lincoln in the 



22 

Welsh language printed in Pottsville, Pa., 1860; Sketches of 
William Miller by J. White, 1875; broadside poem on the 
Battle of Stonington. printed about 1820; Diary of Caroline 
Covvles Richards, 1852-1872, while living in New York state; 
Genealogical record of the Schwenkfelders; Address on Abra- 
ham Lincoln at Greenwich. Conn., April 1865, by William 
H. H. Murray; Emblems of mortality, first American edition, 
Hartford, 1801, with cuts by Anderson; Thomas \\'alter's 
Sermon on regular singing, Boston, 1722; Uncle Tom in 
England (1852). 

Ada M. Stearns gave an interesting collection of some forty 
broadside programmes or handbills of entertainments or shows 
of about 1850. many of them given in Middletown ; also a 
number of Connecticut political l)roadsides and a collection of 
state publications and other pam])hlets. 

Publications of Connecticut interest include Gravestones of 
Earl\- New England by Forbes ; Beginnings of money in Con- 
necticut by Nettels; More chronicles of a pioneer school (in 
Litchfield) by A'anderpool ; Genealogical and biographical 
records (of Connecticut) ; History of the Regicides in New 
England by Welles ; Century sermon at Bethel by Hickok ; 
Windham's story by W. L. Weaver, 1892. mounted newspaper 
clippings; Families of ancient New Haven, vol. 4. by Jacobus; 
History of Ridgefield by Rockwell; Life of Junius Smith by 
Pond. 

Other publications which ma\' be mentioned arc five volumes 
of Vital records of Massachusetts towns; Diary of Matthew 
Patton of Bedford, N. H., 1754-1788; nine volumes and 
pamphlets relating to Vermont's sesqui-centennial ; a mmiber 
of local histories of New York state towns; Illinois Society of 
Mayflower Descendants Year Book, giving ancestral lines of 
many Connecticut families. 

The Museum of the American Indian in New York City has 
presented us with eighty of its publications, almost a complete 
set. including the Contril)utions. Indian notes and monographs, 
Miscellaneous, Indian notes and Leailets. These ])ul)lications 
form an important addition to our library. 

The Farmer's Diarv or L^nited States almanack for 1791 by 
Joseph Leland, ])rinted at Danbury, is the only eighteenth 



23 

century Connecticut imprint added to the lil)rary during the 
year. 

Sidney Cowen Carpenter of Hartford has presented por- 
traits of his great grand parents Judge Esek Cowen (b. 1784, 
d. 1844) and Katharine (Berry) Cowen of Saratoga Springs, 
N. Y. Both were painted by Nelson Cook, that of Judge 
Cowen in 1847 and that of Mrs. Cowen in 1858. Judge Cowen 
was admitted to the New York state bar in 1810, was 
appointed a circuit judge in 1828, resigned to become a judge 
of the supreme court in 1835 where he continued to serve 
until his death. He was widely known by his pubHshed 
"Treatise on the practice in justice courts" and his "Notes on 
Phillips' Evidence." 

A bequest from Frances Andrus Lord (Mrs. John Haynes 
Lord) who died in Montclair, N. J., September 16, 1927, 
includes a portrait of Elisha Lord of Hartford, said to have 
been painted while he was attending Yale College, from which 
he was graduated in 1718, receiving his degree at Wethers- 
field, where some of the students had been located for two 
years. He was born in 1701 and died in 1725 ; so the portrait, 
which is that of a young man, was probably painted when he 
was not more than seventeen years old. The Society has for 
more than eighty years possessed a portrait (copy) of Mary 
Lord, born in 1702, sister of Elisha. the original of which is 
said to have been painted in 1720, and it may be assumed that 
both portraits are the work of the same unidentified artist. 
Accompanying the portrait is a very old framed painting of 
the Lord family arms done in the form of a hatchment. It 
may date back to the time of Elisha's death, although that of 
course is only a surmise. 

Another bequest, from Miss Annie M. Johnson of Bristol, 
includes a silver pepper castor, octagonal in shape with pointed 
top and handle on side, which bears the maker's mark of 
"Jacob Hurd" ; three small silver spoons ; a pewter platter by 
Dan forth and a pewter beaker; two large platters bearing the 
name of James Tarns & Co. Philadelphia, one of them marked 
"Pompeii" the other "Roscius". 

Mr. Godard has presented us with examples of the Con- 
necticut Sesqui-Centennial medal carrying the statue of 
Nathan Hale, and of the "Old Newgate Prison" medal struck 



24 

on the occasion of the American Xuismatic Association's 
meeting in Hartford. A number of other medals have been 
received from other sources. 

The volume of Particular Court records noted in my last 
report is still dragging its weary way through the press. For 
this the ever increasing duties of your librarian and editor as 
well as numerous vexatious delays and errors on the part of 
the printer must be held responsible. The text is now all in 
page proof and with the exception of a few pages has been 
corrected and approved. Index slips for more than three- 
fourths of it have already been written. 

Our only publication during the year has been the "annual 
report," a pamphlet of 80 pages. 

Our genealogical section has been increased by the addition 
of fifty-two printed works. These vary in size from a single 
sheet to two thick volumes. The families to wliich they relate 
are: Adams, Allis, Beach (2), Bentley, Brace. Bradley, Breed 
or Bread, Brigham, Bronson. Cal)ot, Chester, Clarke, Clement, 
Dart, Davis, Dixon-Williams Ancestry, Eddy, Edgerton, Fish- 
back. Foreman (Farman, Forman), Fowler. Gage, Harmon, 
Hatch, Haven, Hayes, Haynes (2), Higby, Holloway, Knox, 
Leonard-Thompson-Haskell, Lord Ancestry, Lum, Maskell, 
Mathews (Mathes), Morris, Osgood, Otis, Otis-Collins An- 
cestry, Pardee, Pomeroy. Roe, Savage & Tisdale, Skilton, 
Stark, Stone, Wayne, Welles, Whitney-Johnson Ancestry, 
W^illiams, Wyman. 

Newman Hunger ford, a life member of the Society, was 
admitted to membership November 7, 1899. He was formerly 
a resident of Hartford ; but for the last few \ears had resided 
in Torrington, where he died May 8, 1927. In tlie seventh 
clause of his will he bequeathed to the Society "all my 
collected coins and medals" together with "the sum of Two 
Thousand Dollars" to continue and care for the collection. 
Although permission is given to expend a portion of this sum 
if necessary, it was evidently the testator's desire that this 
principal sum should be kept intact and only the income of it 
used. This desire the Society will doubtless respect, probably 
by a formal vote. 

Upon arranging the collection of coins, which consists 
almost entirely of issues by the United .States or by or for 



some of the earlier Colonies or states, it appeared that there 
were numerous lacunae in some of the sets, which Mr. 
Hungerford apparently had not found time or opportunity to 
fill. In order that these sets might be made more nearly 
complete, the Society made a special appropriation for the 
purpose from other funds, which might be expended at once 
before income from Mr. Hungerford's bequest became avail- 
able. 

Coins purchased with this special appropriation, a few from 
the collection gathered by our former librarian Rev. Thomas 
Robbins, a few recently presented by several members of the 
Society and a number loaned by another member have been 
united with the Hungerford collection. With a few excep- 
tions, the coins have been listed on cards and the source of 
each one noted. It appears to have been Mr. Hungerford's 
aml)ition to secure two specimens of each coin in order to 
show at the same time both the obverse and reverse sides. 
This plan has been continued to some extent in making 
additions to the collection. 

The collection at this time may be roughly summarized as 
follows : 

Issues of separate colonies or states, including \'ermont, Massa- 
chusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey and Virginia. 

Other colonial issues, including the Fugio, Nova Constellatio, 
Washington and Wood. 

Half cents, each year of issue, two examples of more than half of 
them and a number of varieties, many in uncirculated or mint state. 

Large cents, each year of issue, two examples of almost every year 
and many varieties, many in fine and some in uncirculated or mint 
state. 

Hard times tokens of the period of 1837, about forty issues, two 
specimens of many of them. 

Small cents, two of each year and mint and a number of types of 
the early years, the majority of them in proof, others in uncirculated 
or mint state. 

Civil War tokens, nearly three hundred issues or varieties, two 
examples of many of them. 

Two cents, two of each year of issue and a variety of one year, the 
majority of them in proof, others in mint state. 

Three cents nickel, two of each year of issue and a variety of one 
year, all in proof state. 



Five cents nickel, two of each jear, type and mint (with one possible 
exception) of issue, the majority of the earlier ones in ])roof, the later 
ones in uncirculated or mint state. 

Three cents silver, each year and mint of issue, two examples of 
each of a majority of the issues, some of them in proof state. 

Five cents silver, each year of issue with three exceptions and each 
mint of those years with eight exceptions, two examples of each of 
three fourths of the issues, and a number of varieties, many in 
uncirculated and a few in proof state. 

Dimes, each j'car of issue with five exceptions, many with mint 
marks and a few varieties, two examples of each of more than two 
thirds of the issues, some in uncirculated or mint state and a few in 
proof state. 

Twenty cents, each year of issue in i)roof state, a second example of 
half of the years of issue and two with mint marks. 

Quarters, more than two thirds of the years of issue, two examples 
of half of them, many with mint marks. 

Halves, three fourths of the years of issue, two examples of almost 
three fifths of these, many w^ith mint marks, many in uncirculated and 
more than one third of the years in proof state. 

Dollars, more than one third of the years of issue, a few of them in 
])roof state. 

Trade dollars, each year of issue with two exceptions, a few with 
mint marks and a few in proof state. 

Commemorative coins in silver, the quarter, the dollar and the 
twenty three issues or varieties of half dollars, two sjiecimens of each, 
all in uncirculated or mint state. 

Commemorative coins in gold, thirteen issues or varieties, dated 
from 1903 to 1926. of denominations from twenty-five cents to two 
and a half dollars, all in mint state. 

Tn addition to the above, there are numerous duplicates of 
the copper, bronze and nickel coins which can from time to 
time be disposed of to increase and benefit the general collec- 
tion. 1'he medals and badi,^es some two hundred in number, 
includini^ many that are of beauty and interest, have not yet 
been arranged or listed. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Albert C. Bates, 

Librarian.

On the ninth of January, Governor Trumbull, in his 
Message to the General Assembly, had recommended that the 
appointment of a commission be authorized to formulate plans 
to be submitted to the next General Assembly for the celebra- 
tion of tlu' Three Hundredth Anniversary of the Settling of 
the Colon \- of Connecticut. 



15 

It seemed prudent, and polite, to defer tlie activities of The 
Connecticut Tercentenary Association until such lej^islation 
should have materialized and the commission so authorized 
should have been appointed. 

In accordance with the Governor's recommendation, House 
Bill No. 16, entitled "An Act Providing for a Commission on 
the Observance of the 300th Anniversary of the Settlement 
of Connecticut" was passed by the General Assembly, and 
approved. The act is as follows : — - 

"The Governor is authorized to appoint a commis- 
sion consisting of seven members, to make plans for 
participation by the State in the appropriate observ- 
ance of the three hundredth anniversary of the settle- 
ment of Connecticut as a colony. The members of 
said commission shall receive no compensation for 
their services thereon, but their reasonable expenses 
shall be paid by the state. vSaid commission shall 
report to the general assembly not later than the third 
Wednesday after the convening of the January 
session in 1931." 

Recently Governor Trumbull has appointed as the members 
of this commission : — 

Dr. James R. Angell. 

President Yale University, New Haven. Conn. 
Hon. George W. Wheeler. 

Chief Justice of Connecticut. Bridgeport. Conn. 
Hon. E. Kent Hubbard, 

President Manufacturers' Association, Middletown. Conn. 
Mrs. George M. Minor, 

President Conn. Society, D. A. R., Waterford, Conn. 
Hon. Robbins B. Stoeckel, 

State Motor Vehicle Commissioner. Norfolk. Conn. 
Mrs. James P. Andrews, 

National President of the Society of Colonial Dames of 
America, Hartford, Conn. 
Dr. George C. F. Williams. 

President of the Conn. Historical Society, Hartford, 
Conn. 



16 

It is an interesting- coincidence that the year 1939 will be the 
100th Anniversar}- of the passage by the Connecticut General 
/Assembly of the following act, continuing the Connecticut 
Historical Society as a corporate body : — 

"Resolv^Ed and Declared, that the existence of the 
said Society as a body corporate, with the powers 
and privileges ordinarily granted thereto, be continued 
and perpetuated as though its officers had been chosen 
annually since 1825." 

It seems probable that notice will be taken of this centenary. 

Among the events of the last year pertaining to the interests 
of this Society, the most important and far-reaching is the 
acquisition of Mr. William G. Land as assistant librarian. His 
knowledge and experience, his taste for the work and his gifts 
for social contacts have already established him firmly in the 
regard of the officers and members of the Society and of that 
part of the public who have used the library. 

The subject of a fireproof building, the fund for which now 
amounts to one million dollars in round numbers, has received 
all the attention practicable from the building committee 
appointed by your vote. The members of that committee 
are : — 

Albert C. Bates 

Morgan B. Brainard 

Charles G. Woodward 

George S. Stevenson 

George C. F. Williams. 

While there is no definite progress to be announced at this 
time, we have the encouraging assurance that each year 
certainly brings us nearer to the time when we shall have a 
fireproof building worthy of our important and valuable collec- 
tions. Moreover, there has been an accretion to the intangible 
evidence that this consummation of our hopes is not far away 
in the future. 

George C. V. Williams, 

President.

librarian's JJcport. 

Mr. President and Members of the Society: 

Perhaps the most important event of the year, at least from 
your Hbrarian's point of view, has been the securing of a full 
time assistant in the person of William G. Land. Mr. Land is 
a recent graduate from Harvard and comes to us from Cam- 
bridge. He comes with previous library experience, with a 
liking for history and an appreciation of old books and manu- 
scripts and ability to read such manuscripts. 

Our rooms, through continued accessions, having become 
crowded to the limit, it was decided upon the suggestion of 
President Williams, to relieve this situation by placing some of 
our library in storage outside of the building. Space was 
secured and about 500 boxes, each containing books or pamph- 
lets that would occupy more than five linear feet of shelving, 
have been packed and removed from the library. The shelf 
space thus gained will permit better arrangement of and more 
ready access to the books and pamphlets remaining in the 
library. The aim has been to remove only such publications as 
were not often asked for by our readers ; but without doubt 
readers will from time to time seek some of the books that 
have been placed in storage. The removal of these books has 
necessitated the entire rearrangement of the greater part of the 
library, and this, with the packing, has entailed an amount of 
labor that can only be appreciated by those who had a part 
in it. 

After many vexatious delays, the twenty-second volume in 
our series of "Collections" was issued in January and copies 
have been sent to our exchanges. The volume comprises the 
complete records of the Particular Court of Connecticut, 
covering the period of 1639 to 1663, and forming a book of 
312 pages. It was published in conjunction with the Society 
of Colonial Wars in the State of Connecticut, which under- 
took the publication of these records some years ago, but failed 
at that time to carry the work to completion. The lirst ten 
years of these records were printed in 1850 as part of the lirst

volume of Records of the Colony of Connecticut — now a 
scarce volume. The remainder, 1630 to 1663. had not been 
printed until the present time. The Particular Court was next 
below the General Court, yet many of the actions brought 
before it seem of a trivial nature. Others were of serious 
import, such as indictments and convictions for the crime of 
witchcraft. Our only other publication during the year is the 
"Annual report", a pamphlet of 65 pages. 

The family genealogies added during the year are — Atwood, 
Austin. Babcock, Barker, Beach, Bingham, FMackman, B.os- 
worth (2), Boydstun, Brooks, Brownell, Bunn, Burbank. 
Chase, Conklin, Cowles, Bearing and Whipple, Eddy, Edson 
(2), Fernald, Fulham, Grafton, Halsey, Harman, Harwood 
(2), Hatch, Heath and Clark and Cone, Hine, Hosmer, Huide- 
koper, Johnson, Kelsey, Langdon, Miner, Moore, Prince, 
Ryerson, Severance, Smead, Snow, Tripp, Trumbull. Warren, 
White, Whitney and Wyne, Wyer. 

Gifts of a considerable number of books and pamphlets have 
been received from the following donors: C. Alfred 
Weatherby of East Hartford, of a general, ecclesiastical and 
historical nature; Stillman F. Westbrook of Hartford, general 
and historical ; Hartford Printing Company, directories of 
various cities and towns; Mrs. James J. (joodwin of Hartford 
and New York. Johns Hopkins University studies. 

In addition to the generous gift of books and pamphlets 
received from C. Alfred Weatherby. he also presented us with 
a miniature of James r)id\vell Hosmer, a former officer and 
patron of tlie Society, painted when he was a young man; and 
another of his fiance. Miss Sparrowhawk or Sparhawk. who 
died of consumi)tion at an early age. Accompanying these was 
a tobacco or snuft' box, supposed to have belonged to Mr. Hos- 
mer, marked "Let's be Joyful." 

The Congregational church of Abington in the town of 
Pom fret has placed with us the j^ewter communion service pre- 
sented to that church by Samuel Craft in 1753. It consists of 
twelve pieces, one of which bears the presentation inscription. 

The number of readers who consulted oiu" lil)rary during the 
year was 3,546. This is an increase of more than seven and 
one half per cent over the number for the previous year. 



The accessions to the hlirary for the year, including 12 
volumes credited to the Charles J. Hoadly fund, eight to the 
Lucy A. Brainard book fund and four to the Goldthvvaite 
fund, are by gift 565 volumes, 532 pamphlets and 92 miscel- 
laneous; by purchase 189 volumes, 397 pamphlets and 47 mis- 
cellaneous; by exchange one volume. This makes a total of 
753 volumes, 929 pamphlets and 139 miscellaneous; and a 
grand total of 1,822 items. In addition to these printed items 
are the manuscripts, a list of which with their sources is as

We have secured thfee volumes, about 500 pages, of copies 
of orders, letters, telegrams, etc. issued and sent to command- 
ers of naval vessels, squadrons, navy yards, forts and to a few 
individuals by Gideon Welles while Secretary of the Navy 
during the period of March 11, 1861 to June 21, 1862. These 
copies were presumably made l)y Welles' secretary- Giving as 
they do the official orders of the Secretary of the Navy during 
the early part of the Civil War. they would seem to be of 
exceeding interest and value to all students of that conflict. 
So far as has been ascertained, onh- five or six of these orders 



23 

have ever been published ; although the United States govern- 
ment has published the official letters sent to Secretary Welles. 

Another interesting as well as early manuscript of which we 
have received a copy is the Court records of William Pynchon 
at Springfield, Mass., 1639-1658. While for a short period 
only Springfield was considered as lying within the jurisdiction 
of Connecticut, it is a border town and its interests in the early 
days were closely allied with those of Connecticut. 

Six items have been added to our unrivaled collection of 
early Connecticut imprints. They are of the years 1765, 1775, 
1783, 1798 and 1799 (2). While it is a rash statement to 
speak of any copy of a publication as unique, it can be said 
that no other copy of the earliest of these imprints has been 
located. It is A Guide to Heaven From the World — Printed 
for, and Sold by James Larrabe of Norwich, 1765. The 
printing was probably done by Timothy Green at New London. 

In a study made to identify the binder of a copy of Samuel 
Willard's "Covenant-keeping" in its original contemporary 
binding which is in the Society's library, note was taken of a 
printed leaf pasted to the inside of each leather cover. After 
considerable search these two printed pages were identified as 
being from a copy of Mrs. Rowlandson's "Narrative". This 
Narrative is supposed to have been first printed in Cambridge 
by Samuel Green in 1682. No copy of this first edition is 
known to exist ; its size is unknown and its place of printing, 
printer and date are assumed. A second edition in small 
octavo was printed in Cambridge by Samuel Green in 1682. 
An edition in quarto was issued in London the same year. 
There was no other edition until 1720. Comparison of the 
two pages in our volume shows that they are a different set 
up of type from the second edition of 1682, although the page 
is of the same size. They are too early to be from the 1720 
edition. The conclusion follows that they are either from the 
first edition, supposed to have been printed in 1682, or from 
the very rare resetting of the second edition of the same year. 

We were fortunate in adding during the year two issues to 
our collection of "Fifth of March" orations delivered usually 
at Boston "to commemorate the bloody tragedy" of the P)OSton 
massacre. Our collection now comprises the following ora- 
tions :

to the Susquehannah Land Company and to the early settle- 
ment of the Wyoming region. Permission to use such material 
as was to be found in this Society's library having been 
obtained by correspondence, a representative of the Wyoming 
society visited our rooms, selected the material desired and 
supervised the making of more than 1,800 photostat prints 
from our manuscripts and early newspapers. Among the 
manuscripts copied were the original record book of the 
meetings of the Susquehannah Land Company and several 
volumes of deeds of land in that section of Pennsylvania while 
it was under the jurisdiction of Connecticut, also many letters 
from the correspondence of William Samuel Johnson. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Albert C. Bates,
