The work of the Ruth Wyllys Chapter, D. A. R. of Hartford, relative to the widening of Gold Street and the restoration of the ancient cemetery, has been rewarded after long. patient waiting and hard persistent work, by the withdrawal of the opposition of the property owners so that now a presentable approach to Bushnell Park from Main street, which we have so long wished for, is within sight. The work of tearing down the old buildings preliminary to widening the street, will begin April 1.

The regent of the Chapter and chairman of the Gold street committee, Mrs. John M. Holcombe, ably assisted by others of the committee, have labored indefatigably and accomplished results that we do not believe could have been brought about, except through their splendid, unselfish efforts.

The relief work of the Connecticut chapters of the D. A. R. is summarized in a pamphlet gotten out by the state regent. It shows a total expenditure in cash of over $3500, besides a great number of supplies of food and clothing, carefully itemized. Besides these there were personal gifts, not included in the

itemized reports; as for instance, one of the regents gave about $5000 for the sick and wounded soldiers. A vely creditable showing.

The Elizabeth Porter Putnam Chapter, D. A. R. of Putnam, inaugurated the anniversary birthday of General Israel Putnam, Saturday Jan. 7, 1899, by a public celebration in Union Hall, with music and addresses, with over 400 persons present.

Mrs. Mary Medbury, Regent of the Chapter, called the meeting to order, explained the purpose of the Daughters in thus calling together the citizens of Putnam, and in their behalf called upon Major S. H. Seward to preside.

Mr. Seward, in accepting, stated the order of exercises, and then called upon the band to play. He then stated that the design was to perpetuate the memory of the State's great warrior by an annual celebration as was befitting in a city named after him. With appropriate introduction for the parts assigned to each speaker he called upon Messrs. J. W. Manning, Charles E. Searles, L. H. Fuller, E. M. Warner, and Rev. F. D. Sargent, whose historical reminiscences of General Putnam, and brief sketches of the city of Putnam, past, present and prospective, were happily and eloquently set forth.

The regular meeting of the Anne Wood Elderkin Chapter, D. A. R. of Willimantic, was held with Mrs. Herbert R. Chappell Monday, December 19th. The usual reports were read and accepted. Historian's paper was read by Mrs. Chappell entitled, "Nehemiah's Plan." Delegates to the National Congress at Washington, D. C., were appointed: Mrs. Edwin Bugbee regent, and Mrs. Hayden: Mrs. Eugene Lincoln, Mrs. Harris, alternates.

The meeting was then given in charge of Mrs. Chaffee, chairman of the program committee. There was a duet by Mrs. Hillhouse and Mrs. Boss. Miss Holt read a paper on the "The Mohegan Indians, the first settlers of Connecticut." Song, "Columbia my Country," by Mrs. Storrs. Chorus by Chapter members. Mrs. Chaffee read an account of "the present Mohegan's claim and grievances." Song, "Libertas et Patria." by chapter. Christmas story by Robert Burdette, read by Mrs. Risedorf. Solo, "Brightest and Best," Mrs. Storrs.


Mrs. Sara T. Kinney, state regent of the Daughters of the Revolution, has tendered her resignation from that office. Mrs. Kinney, after formally placing her resignation before the regents of the organization, notified by letter the various chapters througout the state.

At a meeting of Mary Clap Wooster chapter Saturday afternoon Mrs. Kinney's

letter was read and after the members had recovered from their surprise, expressions of regret were heard upon all sides. This is the chapter of which Mrs. Kinney is a member and of which she has been regent.

As state regent Mrs. Kinney has served three years and after a very busy summer she now feels the need of a relaxation from the duties of so responsible a position.


The Connecticut Society of Colonial Dames held its annual meeting at the Prospect Casino in Hartford, Nov. 15th. The business was chiefly the reading and accepting of reports of officers and committees and included the work of the relief committee during the war with Spain, showing that much had been done for the soldiers in field and hospital, and the work of the landmark committee upon the dedication of the cairn and tablet at Mohegan to the memory of Lieut. Leffingwell.

The Society elected the following officers:

Pres., Mrs. Frank W. Cheney of South Manchester; first vice-president, Mrs. E. K. Hubbard of Middletown; second vice-president, Miss Martha Day Porter of New Haven: managers, Miss Mary Kingsbury Talcott of Hartford, Mrs. Morris W. Seymour of Litchfield, Miss Mariana Townsend of Middletown, Mrs. Franklin Chamberlin Porter of New Haven.

HARLES RICHMOND HART of affairs, had been a member of the Common Council, and in 1884 and 1887, during the terms of Mayor Bulkeley, he was appointed Water Commissioner. Mr. Hart was exceedingly popular, as attested by his membership in numerous city organizations. He was one of the original Wide Awakes, was a member of the Veteran City Guard, charter member Gentlemen's Driving Club, member of Washington Commandery, A.F. and A. M., and many other socities. Mr. Hart was married to Ellen M. Woodruff, April 4, 1866, who survives him, with one daughter, Mrs. Charles A. Blake. He passed away November 22, 1898 at his residence Broadview," in Windsor, Conn.


Hartford, whose death was announced in our January issue, was one of the oldest business men in the city, in point of continuous service in one line of business. He was born, June 17, 1840, at New Britain, Conn. His parents were Artemas Ensign Hart and Anna Elizabeth, daughter of Abel Church of Litchfield, Conn. In 1857 he came to Hartford and entered into the service of Joab Hubbard remaining with him until 1863 when he entered into business with Sugden & Co., and later became a partner of Mr. Sugden's.

The present firm of "The Chas. R. Hart Co.." is the outgrowth of this partnership, a corporation formed to deal in the sale of carpets and wall papers. Mr. Hart, it will thus be seen, had forty-four years of active mercantile life in Hartford. Mr. Hart was also much interested in city



Susan Benedict Hill, well known as a writer on historical and genealogical subjects, passed away at Hampton, Vt., last October. Her last published poem, "Not Forgotten," was written for and published in the October number of The Connecticut Quarterly, concerning which the "Danbury News" said, "These melodious lines -pathetic, yet serenely triumphant—will be of peculiar interest to the many friends of Mrs Susan Benedict Hill, whose death at Hampton and burial at Hudson we recorded a few days ago. In writing this sweet requiem for the great author, she wrote her own as well."

We expect to have a biographical sketch of Mrs. Hill in our next number.
