the State. There, under the shadow of the stern sentinel of
the Pacific c(jast, Mount Sliasta, he engaged in teaching in the

the four years which he spent in California. Returning in 1803,

to West Auburn, Me., and became acting pastor there. There he
S2:)ent six years of devoted service to the Master. The people
were very kind to him and his family, but, thinking that a change
might prove beneficial to himself and of service to Christ's cause,
he accepted, Oct. 13, 1881, the call which the Presbyterian church
and society of Windham, N. H., gave him. He was duly installed
by the Boston Presbytery as pastor, Dec. 21, 1881, and entered

One of the earliest, but now forsaken, homesteads of Windham
was situated at the junction of two roads, one leading from Simp-
son's mill to Salem, the other leading from the cemetery on the
hill to that town. Only a few things mark the spot where for
two generations large families of children grew up and passed out
into the activities of life. The cellar remains, and the well from
which arose "the old oaken bucket" is still there, and a few large
stones show wliere the barn stood ; this is all.

his wife and child in Haverhill, he came to the then wilds of
W^indhain, to make himself a home. He had already earned one
hundred dollars by |)eddling linen thread for the Londonderry
settlers. With this he bought of one Thom])Son, who lived at
the corner, one hnndreil acres of land, with a small house. His
family joined him. He built a large house, wliich remained there
until 1840, when it was removed to Lowell, Mass. His wife dy-
ing, leaving nine ch., he m. Betsey Utinox, <lau. of Francis, and a
descendant of the Huguenots. Her father left France for Eng-
land, where he m. Mary Lee, descendant of Harry Lee, whom
Walter Scott has made historic. He and wife and son sailed for
America. Betsey, the dau., was born on the voyage. On their
arrival the father and son died ; the young mother soon followe J,

but on her death-bed she remembered the dear old faitli of her
fathers; liad her child cliristcned and left in charge of a god-
mother, who used to buy her thread and linen of the Londonderry
settlers. She thouuht it woukLbe a fine thing to have her young
charge sent among those good people, and learn j,to spin and
weave, and be brought up in all their quiet industry; so the little
waif drifted into the family of Mr. Gregg, of Londonderry; was
catechised l)y Rev. David McGregor. She seldom realized that
she had no kith or kin in all the wide world. Having learned the
weaver's trade, she went among the settlers and wove for them
when needed. After a time she drifted into the town of Wind-
ham, and was brought under the influence of the saintly Wil-
" There 's a divinity that shapes our ends.
Eough hew them how we will."
In those days there was a law, that every transient person should
be warned out of town by the constable ; so that if the person
ever needed public aid, the county, and not the town, would be
responsible. Joseph Corliss was constable, and it became his
duty to perform the disagreeable task. He found Betsey Uti-
nox, the young, friendless French girl, weaving at the house of his
mother-in-law, dressed in her red dress, for she was French in all
her ways. The stern constable read to her the dreadful huv, with
the penalties affixed, to which she was liable, if she did not
leave the town within a stated number of days. With frightened
eyes she listened, and for once in her life the loneliness of her
homeless and friendless condition burst in upon her mind with
overpowering might, and the flood-gates of her soul were broken
down. They soothed her by saying the law was a mere form.
She never forgot that scene, and in her old age would relate it
with fire and indignation shining in her faded eyes. It was an
event, too, that the constable, Joseph Corliss, never forgot, for
when, years afterwards, his wife died, he was glad to ask her to
be a mother to his motherless children, and by her presence to
brighten his home and life.
This is about the only roniantic incident I have found in this
early settlement, and that scene is woi'thy for a ])ainter to sketch
upon enduring canvas, or for a Whittier to weave into verse im-
Mr. Corliss by his second wife had five children. He left tliis
farm to his S(jn Solomon, and boiighl a farm near the school-liouse
in Dist. Xo. 7. The house stood some thirty rods south of the
school-liouse, and the old cellar is still tliere. On this farm
