Mr. Baldwin's character is well illu.strated by an anecdote from
Beecher's Autobiography. He says there was a Parish Meeting
in North Guilford, to see about moving the school house; but
they "quarreled and broke up in a row. It never would have
been set straight if it hadn't been for an old neighbor, Tim Bald-
win.'^ H. B. S. "Why what did he do ?" " Well, I'll tell you. Next
morning, he said he wan't going to have any quarreling about that
school house; so he yoked his oxen and Tim Rossitur's, and went
down, and hitched on, 'whoa, haw Bright, gee up,' and dragged
the school house along where he wanted it ; then he unhitched,
and left it there, and there it stood; and when people found it
was done, they stopped qnarreling."
