PREFACE. 

The following pages, which are now given to the public, are 
the result of an attempt of the author, more than ten years ago, to 
gather some information about his own family connections, and to 
trace his ancestry. Then, and for some years later, the work was 
only a private matter, with no thought that it would ever be given to 
the public and to future generations. He would not then have 
ventured upon the task of tracing all of the descendants of such a 
prolific family as was John Howard's. 

Material has been gathered from time to time as opportunity 
permitted, until the author feels that all of the descendants of 
John Howard should have the benefit of it. The sources of in- 
formation have been many : — such as town and city records, pro- 
bate court records, inscriptions on tombstones, histories, genealogies, 
compilations from the State archives, verbal statements, and re- 
sponses from letters. Many dates and statements have been 
verified from different sources. No attempt has been made to 
give extended biographical sketches of the many people of whom 
much might be said ; a few historical facts have been concisely 
stated about each, if they could be obtained, especially facts relat- 
ing to public service. In many cases little is learned except dates 
of birth, marriage and death, and in some cases not all of these. 

The plan adopted for the arrangement of the family records 
is simply and comprehensive. To trace the ancestry of a person, 
find the record of the person's family referred to, by the index, ob- 
serve the number given to the family in the centre of the page, 
turn back and find the corresponding number on the left hand 
margin of the page, continue in like manner as far as desired ; to 
trace the descendants of a person, observe the number opposite 
the name in the margin, find the corresponding number in the 
the centre of the page. 

No separate record of the families of the daughters has been 
made ; all of the information that has been obtained about them is 
given in the record of the father's family. 



Vm THE HOWARD GENEALOGY. 

For twelve hundred years or more, previous to 1752, in most 
Christian countries the year commenced the 25th of March, and is 
designated as O. S., Old Style. In 1753, by an act of Parliament, 
in England and in all of her dominions, the year was made to com- 
mence Jan. I St, and is designated N. S. or New Style. In this 
work the year has been made to conform to the New Style. The 
following abbreviations are used : — b. for born, m. for married, d. 
for died, dau. for daughter, B. for Bridgewater, W. B. for West 
Bridgewater, E. B. for East Bridgewater, N. B. for North Bridge- 
water, E. for Easton, S. for Stoughton, H. for Holbrook, and R. for 
Randolph. Towns and cities which are not located, are in Massa- 
chusetts. 

The author takes this opportunity to acknowledge his indebt- 
edness, and express his thanks to numerous correspondents and 
those whom he has visited, for the willingness with which they 
have assisted, and furnished information. The author, and every 
one who reads this book, is especially indebted to B. Winslow 
Packard, of South Boston, for very much material furnished about 
the early generations ; to Rev. William L. Chaffin, of No. Easton, 
for information furnished about the Easton families; to George 
Burrill Howard, of Brockton, for information furnished about the 
descendants of his ancestor, George Howard ; and to Mrs. T. O. 
Paine, of East Bridgewater, for much information gathered by her 
father. Rev. Adonis Howard. 

Because of the fact that the Howard family have had so much 
to do with the settlement, growth and development of Bridgewater, 
it seemed to the author that an outline of the history of the town 
would be of special interest to the readers of this volume, conse- 
quently the following very brief sketch has been added. 

It is the hope of the writer that this work may be read by 
the hundreds into whose hands it shall come with the same interest 
that he has taken in bringing together from many sources this 
information. 

HEMAN HOWARD. 
South Easton, Mass., 1903. 



BRIDGEWATER, MASSACHUSETTS. 



Bridgewater was the first inland town in the Old Colony. It 
was originally a plantation granted to the town of Duxbury. When 
the township of Marshfield, which joined Duxbury on the east, 
became a separate corporation, Duxbury applied to the Old Colony 
Court at Plymouth, for an extension to the westward, as a compen- 
sation for the territory lost by the incorporation of Marshfield. In 
1645, ^^^ inhabitants of Duxbury were granted a competent 
proportion of lands about Saughtuckquett, toward the west, for a 
plantation for them, and to have it four miles every way from the 
place where they shall set up their centre, provided it intrench not 
upon Winnytuckquett, formerly granted to Plymouth. Capt. 
Miles Standish, Mr. John Alden, George Soule, Constant South- 
worth, John Rogers and William Brett were nominated by the 
Court to be foefees in trust for the equal dividing and laying forth 
the said lands to the inhabitants. There were at first fifty-four 
inhabitants, who each had one share, and were called original pro- 
prietors ; only about one-third of these ever became residents of 
the new plantation ; one of this number was John Howard. This 
grant by the Court was considered as only an authority or right to 
purchase it of the Indians ; accordingly, Capt. Miles Standish, 
Samuel Nash and Constant Southworth were appointed to make 
the purchase, which they did, as appears by the following deed : 

Witness these presents, that I, Ousamequin, Sachem of the country 
of Poconocket, have given, granted, enfoefed and sold unto Miles Stan- 
dish, of Duxbury, Samuel Nash and Constant Southworth, of Duxbury, 
aforesaid, in behalf of all the townsmen of Duxbury, aforesaid, a tract of 
land usually called Satucket, extending in the length and bredth thereof, 
as followeth, that is to say, from the Weir at Satucket seven miles due 
east, and from the said Weir seven miles due west, and from the said 
Weir seven miles due north, and from the said Weir seven miles 
due south : the which tract the said Ousamequin hath given, 
granted, enfoefed and sold unto the said Miles Standish, Samuel 
Nash and Constant Southworth in behalf of all the townsmen of Duxbury 
as aforesaid, with all the immunities, privileges, and profits whatsoever, 
belonging to the said tract of land, with all and singular, all woods, un-

derwoods, lands, meadows, rivers, brooks, rivulets, etc., to have and to 
hold to the said Miles Standish, Samuel Nash and Constant Southworth 
in behalf of all the townsmen of the town of Duxbury, to them and their 
heirs forever. In witness whereof, I, the said Ousamequin, have hereun- 
to set my hand, this 23d of March, 1649. 

JOHN BRADFORD, 1 Witness the ^ of 

WM. OTWAY (alias) PARKER, / mark 1 OusAMEqym 

In consideration of the aforesaid bargain and sale, we the said Miles 
Standish, Samuel Nash and Constant Southworth, do bind ourselves to 
pay unto the said Ousamequin, for and in consideration of the said tract 
of land, as foUoweth : 

7 Coats, a yard and a half in a coat. 
9 Hatchets. 

8 Hoes. 
20 Knives. 

4 Moose Skins. 
10 yards and a half of cotton . 

MILES STANDISH, 
SAMUEL NASH, 
CONSTANT SOUTHWORTH. 

The grant of the Court four miles each way from a centre was 
located within this territory, purchased from the native Indians. 
The centre was not located until several years after the purchase. 
The spot is now marked by a stone monument, which stands near 
the Westdale railway station. An additional grant was made by 
the court of New Plymouth to the town of Bridgewater in 1688. 
It was that they should have six miles from the centre on the north 
side if the line of the Colony hindereth not, and on the west side 
up to Taunton bounds (now Raynham and Easton), and on the 
south and southeasterly sides unto Titicut river as far as the six 
miles extends, and so likewise on the east side. Actual settle- 
ment was not commenced until 1650. Each settler had at first a 
grant of a house lot of six acres on the Town river. The first 
lots were taken up in the part of the town which is now West 
Bridgewater. The houses were near together, for the purpose of 
protection from the Indians. Eighteen of the original purchasers 
became permanent settlers. The town was incorporated in 1656, 
the first town meeting being held Nov. 3d, that year. In May of 
the following year, town officers were elected ; among them was 
John Howard who was elected surveyor of highways. In the early 



BRIDGEWATER, MASSACHUSETTS. XI 

part of the eighteenth century, settlements had become quite 
numerous in the northern, eastern and southern portions of the 
town, and the inhabitants found it inconvenient to go several 
miles to church and town meetings. They began to petition the 
Court to be set off as separate parishes, precincts or towns. The 
town of Abington was set off in 17 12 from the northeast portion 
of the town. In 17 16 the southerly portion of the town was 
organized as the South Parish, for church and school purposes, but 
its voters continued to go to the old centre of the town to vote 
until 1822. 

When the North, West and East Parishes were set off and 
incorporated as towns with distinct names in 1821-23, the 
South Parish inherited the name of the ancient town of Bridge- 
water, and has since been known by that name. In 1830 its 
population was 1,855, in 1^95 '^^ was 4,686. It is the home of one 
of the State normal schools, the school having been opened in 
1840. The town is prosperous and beautifully situated. 

The northern portion of the original town, after 17 16, was 
known as the North Parish until 1723, when it was divided into 
West and East Parishes. In 1738 portions of these were set off 
as the North Parish. The first settlement in the East Parish was 
in 1660. It was set off as a separate precinct in 1723. Was in- 
corporated as the town of East Bridgewater, June 14, 1823. Its 
population then was about 1,500 ; it is now about 2,900. There 
have been no less than twenty-two mill sites in the town. It is a 
fact worthy of mention that as early as 1742, Hugh Orr owned 
mills in East Bridgewater, and was the first man in America to cast 
cannons solid and bore them out. He bored cannons for Mass. 
during the Revolutionary War. His trip hammer shop was the 
first of its kind in this part of the country. 

The West Parish was incorporated as the town of West 
Bridgewater in 1822. This portion of Old Bridgewater is more 
distinctively a farming district than are any of the other Bridge- 
waters. Many of its citizens are successfully engaged in the dairy 
business and market gardening. The Howard Seminary is beau- 
tifully located here in the centre of the town, as is also the Old 
Bridgewater Historical Society building. 



3ai THE HOWARD GENEALOGY. 

There was no permanent settlement in the northern portion 
of Bridgewater until 1700. In 1737 Robert Howard and fifty- 
four others petitioned the legislature to incorporate them into a 
separate town. Jan. 3, 1738, they were granted an incorporation 
as a parish, by the name of the North Parish of Bridgewater. In 
1821 the parish was incorporated as the town of North Bridge- 
water. The following call for the first town meeting is of special 
interest to the Howard family, as the warrant was issued by Caleb 
Howard, Esq. The following is an exact copy of the original, 
which is in the possession of one of Caleb Howard's grandchildren. 

To Calib Howard, Esqr., one of the Justices of the piece for and 
within the County of Plymouth — 

We, the subscribers, inhabitants of the town of North Bridgwater, 
request you to issue a warrant directed to some freehold inhabitant of 
said town, to call a town meeting on Wednesday, the fourth day of July, 
inst., at one o'clock in the afternoon, for the purpose of choosing all 
nessary town officers for the year ensuing, and to act or do anything the 
town may think proper, agreeable to the act of incorporation of said 
town.

In 1874 the name was changed to Brockton. In 188 1 it was 
incorporated as a city. In 1820 the first public stage ran through 
the town. In 1845 the steam railroad to Boston was first operated. 
In 1764 the population was 833; in iSioit was 1,354; in 1820 it 
was 1,480; in 1830 it was 1,953; in i860 it was 6,384; in 1880 it 
was 13,608; and at the present time it is about 45,000. It is the 
only city in Plymouth County. Its principal business is shoe 
manufacturing. The city produces more men's shoes than any 
other place in the world. 



HOWARD SEMINARY. 

The building of Howard Seminary was made possible by a 
bequest of Benjamin Beal Howard, who died in New Bedford, 
April 3, 1867. By his will he left $80,000 for the establishment 
of a High School or Seminary of learning. The money was left 
in the care of eleven trustees, all of whom are now dead except 
John E. Howard, of Brockton, who has not been a trustee since 
1875. 0"ly the income of this bequest was to be used for the 
support of the school. In April, 1868, the trustees purchased of 
Jonathan Howard, ten acres of land on which to erect the school 
building. In May, 1875, the work of building was commenced 
and completed in 1876. Mr. Otis Drury, one of the original trus- 
tees, willed his whole property, after the death of his widow 
amounting to about seventy thousand dollars, to the Seminary 
the interest of which only should be expended. In May, 1883 
the trustees engaged Miss Helen Magill, daughter of Edward H 
Magill, President of Swarthmore College of Pennsylvania, to open 
a girls' school in the new building, which was called " Howard Col- 
legiate Institute," and to continue in charge five years. This 
same year a boarding hall was built, accommodating thirty 
pupils, which is known as "Drury Hall." In 1885 it was enlarged 
to accommodate sixteen more pupils. Another of the school build- 
ings is Packard Cottage, used for music, receptions and dormito- 
ries. In 1887 Miss Magill resigned her position. 

Miss Emma O. Conro was the next principal, who filled the 
position for three years. In September, 1890, Horace M. Willard, 
formerly principal of Bridgewater Academy, was engaged as prin- 
cipal for one year. At his suggestion, the name of the school was 
changed to "Howard Seminary," July i, 1891. He was engaged 
for five years, at the close of which time he resigned his position. 
He was succeeded by Ralph W. Gifford, who occupied the position 
of principal for two years. He was succeeded, in Sept., 1898, 
by Miss Sarah E. Laughton, who is principal at the present time. 
There are now eleven instructors in the school, which has an 
academic course of four years, consisting of prescribed and elec- 
tive studies, and a college preparatory course of four years, con- 
sisting of prescribed studies to fit the requirements for admission 
to the particular college the pupil intends to enter. 



THE OLD BRIDGEWATER HISTORICAL SOCIETY 
BUILDING. 



The Old Bridgewater Historical Society was organized April 
19, 1894, and incorporated in 1895. Its object is the "collection, 
preservation and publication of material which shall contribute to 
the history of the colonial township of Bridgewater." The erec- 
tion of a building for a home for the various books, papers and 
relics of the past two hundred and fifty years, was first contem- 
plated in 1898. In 1900 the building was erected, in memory of 
the original proprietors and early settlers of Bridgewater. The 
building occupies a prominent position in what is now West Bridge- 
water, and stands upon land contiguous to the site of the first 
meeting house and burying place of the early proprietors, and 
within the limits of the homestead of John Howard, an original 
proprietor, and was given to the Society by Francis Edward How- 
ard, one of his descendants. 

Upon the walls of the building within, are erected marble tab- 
lets in commemoration of many of the prominent families of 
Old Bridgewater, including the following families : — Keith, Brett, 
Perkins, Latham, Kingman, Packard, Field, Southworth and Rey- 
nolds. The southerly end of the building, being the right side of 
the accompanying picture, is set apart as a Howard alcove. All 
papers, books and relics relative to the Howard family that are, or 
may come into the possession of the Society, are to be kept in this 
alcove. The Howard tablet in this alcove was erected by the late 
Francis Edward Howard, of West Bridgewater, and contains the 
following inscription :

This building will be a worthy and lasting memorial of the 
Howard family, which, with many others, are honorecl names 
throughout this country. 



LETTER FROM MARY HAYWARD TO JOHN HAYWARD. 



This letter is a photographic reproduction of the original, 
which is in the possession of a member of the Howard family. 
It is supposed to have been written to John Howard, the progen- 
itor of this family, by his mother, who spelled her name Hayward, 
which was not an uncommon way of spelling the name. As it is 
very difficult to read the letter, the following is printed as an aid : 

London, Aug. i6, 1652. 
Loving Son : — 

Having a fitt opportunity by a friend to send to you, I could not, out 
of my motherly care to you and your brother, do less than write these 
few lines to you to certify you that both I and your sister are in good 
health, praysed be God, and that I earnestly desire to hear from you both, 
how you do and how and in what condition you are both. Your sister 
desires to be remembered to you both, and she and I have sent you some 
small tokens of our love for you. I have sent George 3 bands and a hand- 
kerchief, and an handkerchief to yourself, and I have sent you a shilling 
to you to pay for writing of a letter, if by long silence you have forgott. 
I wonder, son, you should so forgott your mother, whose welfare she 
tended more than anything in the world. Your sister hath sent you a 
book of your father's to you and a bible to George. Did we conceive 
you were alive, we would have sent you better tokens. Child, with my 
blessing to you both, desiring to hear from you and whether you ever 
intend for England, and how your cousing Sarah doth, with my daily 
prayer to the Lord for you, I rest. 

Your Loving Mother, 

Mary Hayward. 
For her loving son, John Hayward, 

this :— 
In case he be dead, to George Hayward in New England.

JOHN HOWARD AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 



FIRST GENERATION. 
1 

JOHN HOWARD, with his brother George, came from Eng- 
land, and settled in Duxbury. He was among those who were 
able to bear arms there in 1643. He was about fifteen years old 
when he came to Duxbury. He lived in the family of Capt. Miles 
Standish, who came from Shorely, Lancashire, England. He soon 
removed to Bridgewater, and was one of the original settlers and 
proprietors of that town. Judge Mitchell, in his history of Bridge- 
water, says that John Howard, the first Howard to settle in Bridge- 
water, was a man of much influence in the new plantation. 

In 1645 his name appears as one of the fifty-four original pro- 
prietors of the grant of land afterward known as Bridgewater. In 

1656 he was one of the two surveyors of highways for his town. In 

1657 he had taken the Freeman's oath. He was one of the four- 
teen men whose allotment of land was in the easterly part of the 
grant. He was one of the first military officers, and was appointed 
Ensign, Sept. 27, 1664. In May, 1676, during King Philip's War, 
Ensign John Howard, with twenty others, fought with some Indians 
and took seventeen of them alive with much plunder, and all re- 
turned without serious injury. June 5, 1678, he was a deputy 
to the General Court of Massachusetts; also on the same date 
was appointed a selectman of his town. In 1683 he, with Thomas 
Hay ward, was a representative to the General Court. Oct. 2, 
1689, he was promoted, and received his commission as a lieu- 
tenant. Mr. Howard was a carpenter by trade. He spelled his 
name Haward, and so did his descendants until after 1700. He 
m. Martha, a dau. of Thomas Hayward, one of the original pro- 
prietors of Bridgewater, who came on the ship Hercules, in 1635, 
from Sandwich, County of Kent, England, with five children and 
three brothers. 



2 THE HOWARD OENEALOGY. 

Mr. Howard lived in a house which he built near the first 
meeting house. It stood directly north of the house where B. B. 
Howard now lives, on the corner of Howard and River streets. 
The accompanying picture shows the spot of ground as it now 
appears ; the well curb seen in the picture is over the well that 
was used with Mr. Howard's house. This was the first public 
house in Bridgewater, as Mr. Howard was licensed to keep an 
ordinary or tavern, in 1670, at this place. It would probably be 
difficult to find, in the history of all the taverns that have existed 
in Massachusetts, another of which it can be said, as Judge Mitch- 
ell says of this original Howard House, that " He (John Howard), 
was licensed to keep an ordinary or tavern, as early as 1670, and 
it is remarkable that a public house has been kept there by his 
descendants ever since, till within a few years."' This house was 
owned and managed by John Howard and his direct descendants 
for a period of 151 years. John Howard opened the tavern in 
1670, and kept it 30 years, until his death in 1700. His oldest 
son, John, then became proprietor, conducting it 26 years, until 
1726. His son, Maj. Edward, was proprietor from that date to 
177 1, for 45 years. His son, Col. Edward, owned and conducted 
the house for 38 years, from 177 1 to 1S09, when he d. Then his 
widow and son, Capt. Benjamin Beal Howard, kept the house 
open 12 years, until 182 1. The house was taken down in 1838. 
A list of the distinguished guests of this tavern, could we know 
their names, would make exceeding interesting reading. Without 
doubt, one of the early distinguished visitors was Mary (Chilton) 
Winslow, (the first lady who came on shore from the Mayflower), 
who was grandmother of the wife of the second proprietor, John 
Howard. An occasional guest was John Reed, D. D., who was a 
member of congress during Washington's administration. Oakes 
Angier, a young lawyer, Hon. William Baylies and Judge How- 
ard, were other prominent and frequent visitors. Lieut. Howard 
d. in 1700. His property was appraised in October, the next 
year. It consisted of about 450 acres of land, and his estate was 
valued at about 840 pounds. Following is a copy of the division 
of his estate and of that of his widow, who d. before 1703. 



FIRST GENERATION. 3 

A true copy of the division of the estate of Lieut. John Howard, late 
of Bridge-water, zvho died intestate, as it was mutually agreed and con- 
sented to by all the several heirs apparent to said estate, on the fifteenth 
day of Oct., Anno Dom. 1701, -which division is made according to the ap- 
praisement in the inventory taken of the said estate: — 

To the widow, one hundred and seven pounds out of the moveable 
estate, and her thirds in the improved lands and housing. 

To John Howard, the eldest son, as followeth :— Ninety-one acres of 
land, Iving part of it at John's bridge where he now lives and near there- 
unto, (£45, o i., o rf.), and the rest at Satucket river and Black brook; 
more, the house and barn and the land between the river and the highway 
that goes directly toward the meeting house, and ten acres joining to the 
said highway, on the north side, lying the whole breadth of the said lands, 
(£60, os.,od.); more, ten acres toward West meadow, (£05, 00 s., oorf.) ; 
half a lot of meadow in Flag meadow, (£04, cos., oo(/.); the land at 
Tetaquat, (£02, 00.!., 00 d.) ; more, a quarter part of the undivided lands, 
and a quarter part of his right in the Cedar swamp, (£1, 07 ,«., 06 d.); 
more, a quarter part of a purchase right in the North purchase, (£5, 00 s. 
00 t/. ) ; more, two lots of meadow, one of them in Poor meadow and the 
other at Black brook, (£10, 00 s., 00 d.). His whole proportion being 
146 pounds, he hath given out of it ;^io: — £s 'o his brother Jonathan, and 
£S to his brother Ephraim. 

To Jonathan Howard, the second surviving son, the land where his

Vicksburg seven years ; while there he was engaged in mercantile 
business. He removed to Carthage, Miss., in 1848, where he 
resided until his death. He was prominent in public affairs, hold- 
ing several offices of honor and trust. When the clouds of civil 
strife began to gather, he counseled for conservative action, and a 
peaceful adjustment of the differences between the states. He 
being a northern man, and openly advocating the union cause, 
made him a mark for the hatred and persecution of the secession- 
ists of his state, who attempted to take his life on several occa- 
sions. Throughout the dark days of reconstruction his influence 
for moderation, justice and honesty, was felt throughout his county 
and elsewhere. He was an accomplished musician, his vocal 
compositions ranking with the best. He was a man of great ex- 
ecutive ability, and possessed no more marked characteristic than 
that of a strict adherence to duty or principle in the face of any 
obstacle and at any cost. He d. Oct. 30, 1896. He had four

ated in 1839. His education was all paid for by his own exer- 
tions, and a great deal of the time he had poor health to contend 



SIXTH GENERATION. 141 

with. The winter following his graduation he taught school in 
Genesse county, N. Y., and went to Detroit, Mich., Apr. 12, 1840, 
where he became a tutor in mathematics in a branch of the 
Michigan State University, and at the same time studied law. He 
was admitted to the bar in 1842, and was engaged in the active 
practice of his profession with signal success, until 1854. In that 
year he was elected to Congress, and was twice re-elected, serving 
six years in all. 

In 1856, as chairman of the Kansas Committee, he, with 
John Sherman, made that (majority) report on the affairs of 
Kansas, regarded then and ever since as one of the ablest and 
most important ever published by order of Congress, which elec- 
trified the country by its thoroughness and fearless candor, and 
extended its influence with great power into the presidential elec- 
tion of i860. 

At the end of his third term, he returned home, having taken 
high rank in Congress, and had a place on most important com- 
mittees, and also having gained for himself a national reputation, 
and cast honor on his District and State. About this time the 
war came, and he was once more doing all that lay in his power 
for the good of his country. Physically incapaciated for enduring 
the hardships of war, he nevertheless threw his whole soul into 
the Union cause, and by his stirring eloquence did much to fill the 
ranks of the army when men were needed. 

Soon after his retirement from Congress he was appointed 
postmaster at Detroit by President Lincoln, in which position he 
continued five and one-half years, until a refusal to indorse Pres. 
Johnson and his policy caused his removal. In 1869 he was 
named by President Grant, and confirmed by the Senate, as 
Minister to China, but he declined the appointment. 

In 1877 President Hayes appointed him Governor of Dakota, 
which position he accepted on the 12th of April, 1878, and re- 
moved to Yankton, Dakota, where he remained until December, 
1879, when failing health made a change of climate necessary, 
and he went to Washington, D. C, where he d. April 10, 1880. 
He had seven children, two dying in infancy.

Orange pastorate he was Eastern Editor of the Chicago Advance, 
of which his brother Charles Henry was Editor-in-chief. He was 
a student of all questions relating to his fellow-men. "While in 
Rockport he became deeply interested in the cause of inter- 
national arbitration, and finally gave up all other work to become 
secretary of the American Peace Society of Boston, which posi- 
tion he held the remaining years of his life. He enlisted the 
sympathies of the leading public men in America and Europe, in 
international arbitration, gaining their personal allegiance in a 
permanent manner. He attended three World Conferences in 
this interest in Europe, and advocated an International Court to 
decide the differences existing between nations. For these ser- 
vices he was greatly honored by the friends of peace, especi.illy 
in England and the United States. He met his death through 
overtaxing his strength while at the International Peace Congress 
in Rome, his last address being an eloquent appeal for the estab- 
lishment of international justice through a High Court of Appeal, 
in place of the historic methods of war." He d. at Rome, It;ily,
