Excerpt from Publications, Vol. 32: Proceedings for the Years 1946-48

In those days Cambridge was still a country town. It became a city in 1846, but in 1851 the Old Village, as the Harvard Square region was called, had not felt the urban touch.

On Garden Street at the end of Mason Street, still a country road and the direct way to Watertown, stood the Washington Elm, a spread ing tree of great beauty. On the corner opposite the. Fay house was the picturesque old Jennison house; at the other end of the Street, where the Deanery now Stands, was the Aaron Hill house. Between the two Was a more recently built house, now an apartment house. Here lived Maria's cousin, Mrs. Estes Howe, with her husband, The Doctor, and'her two unmarried sisters, Mary and Agnes White.

Mary was very intimate with Maria and it was to her that Maria wrote constantly. She had many admirers and there was one Whom Maria always called The Earlie's Son because, though Mary, like Nora in Sir Walter Scott's Nora's Vow, consistently said The Earlie's Son I will not wed, she always expected it to end as did the poem, Nora's heart is lost and won, She's wedded to the Earlie's Son.

Maria's brother, Richard Sullivan Fay, with his wife and children had taken a country seat called Moor Park near Ludlow, in Shropshire, England. He had invited Maria and their niece Anna Maria, daughter of their oldest brother, Samuel Howard Fay, to make him a visit. A. M., as Maria often calls her, was only six years younger than her aunt. She also wrote Copious letters home. These have been published and I shall take the liberty of quoting from them occasionally.
