leaving a bequest to Leicester Academy.

The following autograph letter is still remaining with the Anti-
quarian Society at Worcester :

Camp at Prospect Hill, July 7, 1775.

Deal' Sir: Last evening, I had the pleasure of hearing of your return to Brookfield,

by Mr. Sullivan, who informed me that matters were settled agreeably at Ticonderoga,

and that the fort was under good circumstances, after meeting with some opposition

with one of the officers. By an invitation from Col. Gridley, I went as an engineer

(the 16th of June) upon Bunker Hill, in Charlestown, and threw up a breastwork,

and was on that hill the whole of that memorable day. Ye 17th of June, at evening,

we retreated out to Prospect Hill, and worked again all that night throwing up

breastworks; and I have continued in that service as an engineer to this time. I

propose to stay here about a fortnight; by that time I expect to finish the fortification

on this hill, and then I expect to return home, as there is no provision made for me

in the armj', and the Congress are requested by Gen. Washington not to give out any

more commissions. You proposed to me to have another Member chosen to represent

Brookfield with you. It would be very agreeable to me to have the favour of the

people.

I am, Sir, j-our very humble servant, Jedu'n Baldwin.

Jan. 10, 174i; known as Col. Loammi ; was a cabinet maker and
laud surveyor; resided iu Woburn. He was a man of learning.
He used to walk from North Woburn to Cambrido-e with his
schoolmate Benjamin Thompson (Count Rumford), to attend lec-
tures there on Natural Philosophy, and they together made rude
instruments at home for experiments. At the commencement ot
the war in 1775, he enlisted in a regiment of foot, commanded by
Col. Samuel Gerrish. He was rapidly advanced to be Lieutenant
Colonel ; and in August, upon the retirement of Col. Garrish,
was made Colonel. This Regiment was origihally the 38th, with
eight Companies, and on the Boston lines. On the reorganization
of the army, at the close of 1775, it was the 26th, with ten Compa-
nies. In April, 1776, he was stationed at New York; and June
22, was at the " Grand Battery," in command of the main guard-
He continued down the Delaware, and was in the Trenton Expe-
dition on the memorable night of Dec. 25, 1776, when, in the
stirrino- languaa^e of SewalTs " Woburn," "in face of a violent
" and extremelv cold storm of snow and hail, the Commauder-in-
" Chief recrossed the Delaware to the Jersey side, and took by
"surprise at Trenton, the next morning, a body of about one
" thousand Hessian troops. Col. Baldwin and his men accompa-
" nied the General in his daring enterprise, and partook of the

" honor and joy with which it was crowned, a victory most unex-
" pected and disastrous to the British, but most reviving to the
'^ desponding minds of the friends of liberty, and of the American
"cause."

In 1780, he was High Sheriff of Middlesex county. He was
repeatedly Eepresentative, and was a Member of the American
Academy of Arts and Sciences. He was quite distinguished as
an Engineer. Charles Francis Adams, Jr., says : "In 1826, Col.
" Loammi Baldwin, for a Commission appointed for the purpose,
" submitted plans and estimates for a canal route between Massa-
" chusetts and New York, and his plan contemplated tunneling
" the Hoosac Mountain from point to point, exactly as carried out
" for railroad purposes."

[From the Boston Daily News, Jan. 23, 1875.]
"Tlie widely-known Baldwin Apple was named from him; and the Nashua (N. H.)
Telegraph gives the following account of its origin, written by ilr. B. Blood, of that
place: ' Col. Loammi Baldwin, Chief Engineer in building the Middlesex Canal, lived
in the northern part of Woburn, near the canal. He owned a piece of woodland in
the southwestern part of Wilmington, near what was then known as Butler's Ridge,
from which he cut his firewood. He came to an apple tree, somewhat young, but
thrifty and bearing, which the woodpeckers had pecked around the body and lower
limbs so unmercifully that he feared it would die. As he was an ardent lover of good
fruit, he concluded to "spare that tree," and see Avhat was its fruit. The next
autumn, he found lying on the ground beneath it some very nice-looking winter
apples, which he put in his cellar. The next spring, having friends from Boston to
(line, he brought forward the "Pecker" apples, as he called them, to try the quality
for the first time ; when they were found to be so far superior to any they ever tasted
before, that he went immediately, cut some scions, and engrafted some of his trees at
home. Being High Sheriff, he attended the Court at Concord and Cambridge, often
taking liis favorite apple to eat after dinner, and giving to his fellow-boarders. Thus
from his tree were scions cut, and the fruit is now known almost over the United
States as the Baldwin Apple.' "
