From The Middlesex County Book.

" Cephas Brainerd's education was obtained at the schools in
his native town, which he attended each winter until his
eighteenth year, spending the summers in labor on the
farm.
"At the age of 19 he entered upon a course of historical and
general reading tending toward the line of specific study,
which was necessary for entering the profession of the law.
The year following he began a thorough study of Black-
stone. By a vigorous method he made himself master of
the elementary books placed in the hands of the law stii-
dents. After two years of practical training in Xew York,
in the office of the late Chief Justice Curtis, he was ad-
mitted to the bar in Sept., 1855, and shortly after became
managing clerk in the office of the Hon. Truman Smith
and Mr. Ebenezer Seeley, and soon acquired an interest in
their biisiness. In 1860 he engaged in business alone,
though retaining offices with Mr. Seeley until his deatli
in 1867. He won at first and held until the last the con-
fidence and wann personal interest of those two men, one
perfect in his mastery of the law, and the other inex-
liaustible in the personal resources of the advocate and de-
bater, and to his association witli them is due in great
measure his own professional character. While holding
for a short time the office of arl^itrator of the Mixed Court
under the slave trade treaty with Great Britain, his atten-
tion was turned to international law, for the study of which
he acquired and has always since had a strong liking.
" His success and position in the legal profession is best de-
termined by the nature and imjjortance of the interests in-
trusted to iiis care. Some of the matters in which he has
been professionally concerned may be noted here. In
Sept., 1864, with Mr. James S. Stearns, a former fellow

student, acting as counsel for the Merchant's Relief Com-
mittee of the city of New York, and representing the claims
of one thousand negroes whose property had been destroyed
by the riofers in July, 1863, they submitted an argument
which was the basis of the opinion of the court, sustaining
the constitutionality of the law imposing upon cities the
responsibility for damages occasioned by rioters. He was
associated with Hon. Lyman Tremain and Mr. John E.
Dos Passes, in tlie second trial of Edward S. Stokes, for
the murder of James Fiske, Jun., and in the appeals which
were subsequently taken, and in the third trial which fol-
lowed.

" His first appearance before the United States Supreme
Court was as junior counsel with Truman Smith. The
case involved very important questions of liw, and success
was the gratifying result of the first efforts of the young
man, and the last of the old before that high tribunal.

" He appeared before a committee of the State Legislature to
advocate a reorganization of the public school system in
New York City, which, though rejected then, lias since
been in substance adopted. He has also appeared in be-
half of grave interests before committees of Congress.
Once in the efforts made by merchants of New York, Bos-
ton, Philadelphia, and Baltimore, to abolish the system of
informers in connection with custom houses, he was one
of the counsel for the committee of the Chamber of Com-
merce of New York. He made an argument subsequently
printed and entitled Boolv Seizures, Moieties and In-
formers Indefensible. Congress adopted the recommenda-
tions made by the merchant committees.

"After ten years' struggle, in which he has borne a prom-
inent part, making five oral arguments and printing six.
Congress decided that the claims of those for whom he ap-
peared — upon the Geneva Award — uninsured ship
owners, whose vessels were destroyed, rebel cruisers not
found culpable by the Geneva Tribunal, were superior to
those, of non-premiimi payers, while the claims of the in-
surance companies, who received large premiums to cover
war risks, were rejected.

"While thus attendin.ir ]ir(irc>,-inn;il duties, Mr. Brainerd
found time for philaiiilii ( pir lalior. He was for 27 years
Superintendent of ilic SuikIiv School for the Seventh
Presbvterian Church in New York. For ten years he was
connected with the New York Prison Association, as one of
its managers and its recording secretary.

"The best service he has rendered in this connection has
been in the Young Men's Christian Association. Joining
the society in the second year of its existence, and receiving
through its agency the divine impulse which made him an
active and pronounced Christian man, he has rendered to
it in return a service, the value and extent of which can

hard!}' be overestimated. He has been one of the most
active, efficient, and self-den3'ing of the directors of the
New York Association since 1857, wlien he became a mem-
ber of -the board. But he has rendered a far wider service
to this Cliristian work for young men. In 1865 he was
chosen President, for that year, of the International Con-
vention of Young Men's Christian Associations. In 1866
he was elected a member of the executive committee of
that convention, becoming, in 1868, its Chairman, a posi-
tion of high responsibility he has held ever since. At that
time the committee, consisting of five members, all residing
in New York, was the agent of some sixty-iive societies,
. which were spending but a few thousand dollars annually.
It has now thirty-three members distributed throughout
the leading cities of the continent, and is the agent of some
eight hundred and fifty societies, which require in their
A/ork over $600,000 per year. Then the committee ex-
pended a few hundred dollars yearly; in 1884, the conven-
tion entrusted it with a many-sided work, involving the
expenditure of over $35,000. In all this growth the work
of the committee, under Mr. Brainerd's leadership, has
been a most important factor.

" From the most comprehensive sketch yet made of the his-
tory of the Young Men's Christian Association, we quote
the following: No account of the international work
could be complete without mention of its chairman for the
last 15 years, Mr. Cephas Brainerd. He, in the beginning
and when it was unpopular, grasped the basal idea of the
work by yoimg men, and he has clung to it tenaciously
throughout.' ■

"Every report of the committee to the convention has been
written by him.

" Till 1873 the entire correspondence was conducted by him,
and has since that time been under his careful supervision.
The various secretaries of committees have prosecuted their
work under his direction.

" This remarkable unsalaried service for so many years by
one thoroughly qualified leader has been of incalculable
service to the work for Christ among young men in this
and other lands.

" Mr. Brainerd has lived to see his correct conception and
understanding of its associations, unpopular at first, gain
at last general approval and ascendancy."

" On the evening of Feb. 21 a complimentary dinner was
given to Cephas Brainerd, Esq., at the Holland House, in
New York City, upon his retirement from the chairmanship
of the International Committee of the Y. M. C. A., after 85
years of service. At the time when he assumed the re-
sponsible position, the Associations were small in number
and in membership, poor in property, and doing but little
definite work for men. The state committees, the general

3, the buildings, and the systematizing of the present
noble body were the fruit of the labor and thought of the
National Committee, of which Mr. Braiuerd was the head.
" There was no false note of over-praise in the words and
letters of that evening uttered by governors, senators,
warriors, merchants, and ministers, all telling of love and
gratitude and appreciation. Mr. William E. Dodge pre-
sided with inherited grace and speaker followed speaker,
from Dr. Cuyler, who could hear no word on account of his
deafness, but who said he must speak, till Gen. Howard,
who stood with empty sleeve but full heart, brought his
tribute with many others. The words of Justice Field and
"William M. Evarts with many, many others, till ■ a new
day was born in the darkness without, told of the high ser-
vice of an unselfish man."

" He was chairman of the Y. M. C. A. International Com-
mittee. As a lawv-er one of his earliest and brilliant suc-
cesses was gained in ISGl, when he represented the claims
of the thousand negroes whose property was destroyed by
rioters in 1863, to such good effect that the court sustained
the law imposing upon cities the responsibility for dam-
ages caused by rioters. He has lent his aid to many good
causes since then, both along legal and philanthropic lines.
For 27 years he superintended the Sunday School of the
Seventh Presbyterian Church in New York City. He has
