for the Howard estate. He looked forward to the time when the creditors would
be satisfied, and the balance of the estate be handed over by him to the Spragues
as a curtailed but still great inheritance. But the fates were against him. The
business of the country, like an expiring lamp, blazed up brightly for a moment
after he took charge of the mills, then flickered and finally became encrusted and
gave a faint light for seven long years. Internal dissensions arose. In the mean-
time the machinery of the mills was wearing out, and, worse than all, the new im-
provements in spindles, which men on their feet could introduce into their mills,
would have distanced the Sprague mills in the race to secure the small margin of
profit in cotton spinning if their machinery had been new but of the same old type.
And yet, under all these adverse circumstances, Mr. Chafee struggled on, with
every man's hand against him, persistently and straightforwardly to execute his
trust. Had his life been spared six months he would have been able to have brought
his labors to a close.

"Mr. Chafee was not what would be popularly called a conventionally religious
man. He was not at all sanctimonious in his air, for the reason, perhaps, that he
disliked the scent of a pharisee. He did not keep so close a run of the fast and
feast days of the church as he did of the times when some needy women's rent
became due or when their flour sack would be spent ; but if to be a peacemaker, to
comfort and help the widow and the fatherless, to exercise a blessed charity in
unostentatious ways, to deal honestly and uprightly with all men, and to forgive
his enemies and those who evily entreated him and despitefuUy used him, are
evidence of true piety, then Mr. Chafee was a Christian to the core. When St.
Stephen's Church was building and was pressed for money, he and one other
Christian man now living gave freely of their means, and Mr. Chafee could be seen
almost any clay working with the masons and the laborers to rear that beautiful edi-
fice. It was fitting indeed that there the last solemn rites should be paid to him as
his body rested in front of the chancel which his own hands had helped to build.

" If a memorial be needed for Mr. Chafee beyond the good works which in business
and in private life he has wrought, let it be a rough boulder from the seaward side
of his much-loved Squantum, as typical of the strength of his nature and the ob-
duracy with which he stood to his convictions of right. At the foot of this let the
wood flowers and the tender creepers be planted, that they may nestle to its warmth
and cling to its support, as children and those needing help were drawn to him
and nourished in his life. B. F. T."
