"Long in silence they watched the receding sail of tin

Much endeared to them all, as something. living and human;

Then, as if filled with the Spirit, and wrapt in a vision prophetic,

Baring his hoary head, the excellent Elder of Plymouth

Said, 'Let us pray !' and they prayed, and thanked the Lord and took courage,'

606 BREWSTER GENEALOGY

Azubah (Gillct) HIGLEY of Bccket, born there, November 6, 1787;
died at Pittsfield, Mass., January 21, 1875. He died at Pittsficld,
May 3, 1869.

" Doctor John M. Brewster's early education was received at
Lenox (Mass.) Academy. . . . He commenced the study of med-
icine under his father's instruction; attended a course of lectures in
New Haven, in 1810, and graduated at the Medical School in Bos-
ton, in 1812; reached home the very day his father was brought
home dead of apoplexy, and commenced immediately the practice
of medicine at his native place, where he remained until 1821, when
he removed to Lenox, and was a successful physician in that and
neighboring towns for sixteen years. He was town clerk there for
two years. In April, 1837, he removed to Pittsfield, and continued
his profession with zeal, fidelity, and success for thirty years, making
in all fifty-five years of continuous practice. His physical constitu-
tion was of the most robust kind. Till after he was seventy years
of age he would mount his horse with no other help than the stirrups
and ride with grace and fleetness.

" Dr. Brewster welcomed to his home Gerritt Smith, Elihu Bur-
ritt, Henry Wilson, and many of the early anti-slavery advocates.
The friendship that existed between himself and the honorable
Charles Sumner (of glorious memory) was constant and unabated
to the close of life. He was an anti-slavery man when it cost some-
thing to be one as far back as when James G. Birney was a candi-
date for President. Studious of social propriety and civil' obligations
he firmly and conscientiously took his chances on the side of man-
hood and right, and calmly and quietly awaited the result.

" Need it be said that his grand conduct as husband, father, neigh-
bor, citizen, and physician was the outcome of a character which was
born of Jesus of Nazareth."

Dr. Brewster was twice a candidate for Lieutenant Governor of
Massachusetts, but was not elected.

The illustration opposite was the home of Dr. John M. Brewster
at Pittsfield, bought by him of General Nathan Willis, in 1837, and
it remained in that family until sold, in 1882. The next year the
house was demolished. It was built previous to 1799, and had the
credit of having been a station of the underground railroad for
fugitives from the South on their way to Canada.
