ampton. England. Of her youth but little is
known, and from what is left in her own
writing leads to the belief that she was relig-
iously brought up according to the Puritan
standards of that time. W hen she was about
si.xteen she had the small ]5ox. ."^he was mar-
ried at about that age, and came to this coim-
try. 1 ler husband was the son of a minister of
the nonconformist order in the old country.
In 1635 she became a resident of Ipswich, but
there are no particulars of importance regard-
ing her sta\ in that tnwii, and the exact vear
when she removed to .Andover is not known,
but it is presumable that the latter removal was
before the year 1644. The portion of the town
where she settled was that now called bytlie
name of North .\ndover. Her husband's
house there was burned to the ground in July,
1666; and it is supposed to have been fol-
lowed by a second, in which she died in Sep-
tember, 1672. This house, which was the
residence of her son. Dudley P)radstreet. is
Her poems were first published in London,
in 1650, under the title of "The Tenth Muse
Eately Sprung U]) in America." She appears
to have had from her birth a very delicate
constitution, and was troubled at one time with
lameness and subject to frequent attacks of
sickness, to fevers, and fits of fainting. She
was the mother of eight children, four sons
and four daughters, all but one of whom sur-
vived her. Of her opinions, she regarded
health as the reward of virtue, and her various
maladies as tokens of the divine displeasure.
She says her religious belief was at times
shaken ; but she believed that her doubts and
fears w-ere exaggerated by her tender con-
science. Her children were constantly in her
mind : and for them she committed to writing
many of her thoughts and experiences, espec-
ially religions. Her jioetic similes refer much
to domestic life and the bringing up of chil-
dren, and among her own o(Ts|)ring she notes
the most diverse traits of character ; some of
them were obedient and easily governed, while
others were unruly and headstrong. She
derived satisfaction from the virtues of some,
and deplored the failings of others. Her mar-
ried life was hai)])y. but she continuously dwelt
in her thoughts on the great ills to which
hinnanity is subject. By the burning of her
house at Andover. in July. U)''/). her papers,
books, and other things of great value, were
destroyed. Her son wrote that his father's
loss by this fire was over eight himdred books,
including those of the son and many of the
son's clothes, in his case to at least the value
of fifty or si.xty ])ounds.
Thus from what is derived from Mrs. lirad-
strect's works, one can see that the world of
1666 was not much different from that of 1908
in its experience of domestic trials. The fact
oi her being able to compose anything of a lit-
erary order, was in her day a wonder com-
pared with such things now. She was, how-
ever, living in a new country, scarcely yet set-
tled, and that she even was exposed to criti-
cism on the part of lier neighbors for studying
and writing so much, is evident from these
hnes of hers :
â€¢â€¢ I am obnoxious to each carping tongue
Who .<=ays my hand a needle better fits."
She died of a consumption, and a statement
of her sad condition in the last stages of tlie
disease is preserved in tlie handwriting of her
son. It is supposed, as her burial place is not
known at Andover. that siie may have been
buried in her father's tomb at Roxbury.
In 1678. after her death, a second edition of
her "Poems" was brought out in I'oston. Her
descendants have been very numerous, "and
many of them have more than made up by the
excellence of their writings for whatever
beauty or spirit hers may have lacked." Among
these were Dr. William E. Channing; Rev.
Joseph Buckminster. of Portsmouth: his son.
Rev. I. S. lUickniinster : and his daughter,
Mrs. Eliza P.. Lee: Richard H. Dana, the
poet, and his son R. H. Dana. Jr.: Dr. Oliver
Wendell Holmes: Wendell Phillips: and Mrs.
Eliza G. Thornton, of Saco, Elaine, whose
verses were once esteemed. Her husband mar-
ried a second wife, and his death occurred at
i^alem, March 27. 1697, at the age of ninety-
An example of Mrs. Bradstreet's style in
her lighter mood is given in some lines niton

Captain Roger Dudley, who was killed in bat-
tle about 1586). He was thus early in life an

well as his mother, nothing is known. His
mother was probably of a religious family and
he became a noted Puritan. He was sent to
school bv a charitable lady, and while still
voung became a page in the family of William
Lord Compton, afterwards Earl of Xorthamp-

Manasseh Cutler, third child and elder son
of 1 lezekiah Cutler, a farmer of Kiliingly, Con-
necticut, and grandson of John and Haimah
(Snow) Cutler, of Lexington, Massachusetts,
and Kiliingly, was born in what is now Tliomi)-
son. on May 28, 1742. and baptized on May 30
at the Th()m])son church. His mother was
Susanna, daughter of Deacon liaimiel Clark,
of Kiliingly. He was ])repared for college by
the Rev. .\aron Itrown, of Nortli Killingl)-.
During the winter after graduating he taught
school in Dedham. Massachusetts, where he
became engaged to Mary, eldest daughter of
the Rev. Thoinas Balch, of that town, and of
Mary (Sumner) Balch. He then accepted a
proposal from an aunt of Miss Balch's whohad
been recently left a widow, to go to Edgartown,
on Martha's Vineyard, and take charge of a
business which she owned there.
On September 7, 1766, he was married, and
at once removed to Edgartown, and contiiuied
as a merchant for three years. In the mean-
time he was admitted to the bar, 1767, but sub-
sequently he began the study of theology by
himself, and in November, 1769, he removed
with his family to Dedham, to continue his
studies under his father-in-law's direction. In
May. 1770, he was called to settle in Douglas,
in Worcester county, where he had been preach-
ing for some time, but this call he declined. In
February . 1 77 1, he began to preach in the
Third Parish of Ipswich, -Massachusetts, called
Ipswich Mamlet, and in May he was invited to
settle as their pastor. He accepted the call on
June 9, and was ordained on September II,
Mr. Balch ])reaching the sermon.
During the revolution his work was twice
interrupted by invitations to serve in the army
as chaplain : and he was thus absent for four
months in 1775, and for one month in 1778.
In the latter part of 1778 he undertook the
study of medicine with Dr. Elisha Whitney,
one of his parishioners, and was able thereby to
add .somewhat to a scanty income. .Vs earlyas his
college days he had begun to take a deep interest
in natural science, and about 1780 he ap])lieil
himst'lf esi)ecially to the studv of botany, in
which he became a proficient. From the time of
his settlement in l]iswich he had had occasional
pupils in his house, and in 1782 he opened a
broading-school which was continued (except
during temporary absences) with success for
( )wing to the ditficulties of jiroviding for his
family, in the ilistnrbed state of things after
the revolution, he had serious thoughts of re-
moving to the West ; and it thus came about
that in March, 1786, he united with other
Massachusetts citizens in the formation of the
Ohio Company, to promote a settlement in the
Western territory. He threw himself with such
ardor into the business of stvuring subscrij)-
tions, that he was a])pointed at theaiunial meet-
ing in March, 1787, one of three directors who
were instructed to ai)iily- to Congress for the
]nu"ciiase of lands. His success in inducing
Congress to ])ass tiie memorable ordinance
under which the Northwest Territorv was set-
tied is a part of llie history of the nation. For
tlie next five or six years he was much engross-
ed in ])romoting the development of the Ohio
Comjjany. In 1793 he was the chairman of a
committee which obtained from the State gov-
ernment the incorporation of Ipswich Hamlet
as tlie town of Hamilton. He was an ardent
l-'ederalist, and as such was sent as a repre-
sentative to the general court of Massachu.setts
in the spring of 1800. In November. 1800. he
was elected a representative in the L'nited
.States congress. He held this office for four
years, and then tleclined a second re-election on
account of long-continued and increasing ill-
health. .After his retirement he devoted him-
self exclusively to his ministerial duties which
he retained until his death.
In person he was tall and portly, and in
manners courtly and dignified. His portrait,
])aintcd by Frothingham in 1820, is engraved in
his published life. The honorary degree of
Doctor of Laws was conferred on him by Vale
College in 1791. .Vftcr twenty-four years of
suffering from asthma, which finally terminated
in consumption, he died in Hamilton, on July
28, 1823. in his eighty-second year. The dis-
course delivered at his funeral by the Rev. Dr.
r.etijamin W'adsworth. of Danvers, was pub-
lished . His wife died sufldenly in Hamilton on
November 2, 1815. in her sevent\'-fifth year.
Tliey iiad five sons (one of whom died in
infancy) and three daughters. The third son
was graduated at Harvard College in 1793.
The Rev. Rufus P. Cutler was a grandson.
One has said of him that his mind was alto-
gether of the practical cast, and that in matters
of mere theory and speculation he tor)k but little
interest. He himself published a number of
works and his life, journals, and correspond-
ence have been i)ublished in two volumes by
his grandchildren, William Parker Cutler and
Julia Perkins Cutler, at Cincinnati, 1888.'''

GEORGE 1)( )\\ XING.
-Sir George Downing was the son of Eman-
uel Downing. t)f Salem. Massachusetts, who
married. April 10. 1622, Lucy, sister of Gov-
erlior John Winthrop. He was jirobably born
in London, England, in 1625. In 1636 he was
at school '"at .Maidstone in Kent." He arrived
in Xew England with his parents in 1638, prob-
ably early in October. He pursued his studies
under the Rev. John l-'iske. for many years an
instructor in Salem. He was also under the
inrtuence of Hugh Peters, who married his
aunt, and to whose church in Salem his parents
belonged. L'pham says he "spent his later
youth and opening manhood on Salem Farms."
He was the first .graduate from Salem, after
which he engaged in leaching, anil pursued the
study of divinity. In the summer of 1645. at
the age of twenty, he "went in a ship to the
West Indies to instruct the seamen." Probably
he took this method to ])ay the ex])ense of his
voyage. He proceeded Iiy way of "Xewfoinid-
land. and to Christoi>hers. and P.arbadoes. and
Nevis," and was re(|uested to preach in all
these ]ilaces, but continued to England, where
he was called to be a |)reacher in Colonel John
Okcy's regiment, in the army of Sir Thoiuas
Fairfax. When not mure than twenty-tivc
years of age, Downing liad risen so fast as to
have become a confidential member of Crom-
well's statt, and one of the most imjiortant
correspondents and advisers of Parliament.
September 3. 1651. he was at the battle of Wor-
cester. As early as .April 13. if^tsa. he held the
important position of scoutmaster-general to
the army in Scotland. In 1655, being secretary
