Duodecimo, paperbound (stiff blue wrappers), 97 pp. Very Good+, with small chip to tip of spine. Friends have told me that I have been Bishop of Massachusetts thirty years. i can hardly believe it. Assuming the fact, however, my memory runs back through thirty to fifty years. hence, in writing an address which my loyal Diocese asked me to give in the Cathedral on the Anniversary Day, October 5th, I have included the half-century from 1873 to 1923, in order to sketch the movement of my thought anf faith from early manhood on; for my experience is typical of thousands of others; and the young men and women of today may catch some thoughts, perhaps some inspiration, from it.

12 Pomeroy, Shirley; in conjunction with Area Libraries and Historical Societies. Images of America: The Gateway District.
Charleston, SC: Arcadia Publishing, (1997). 
Octavo, softbound (stiff, slick, photo. illus. wrappers), 128 pp. Fine. From lower cover: The Gateway District in Massachusetts is composed of seven towns served by the Gateway School System: Huntington, Russell, Montgomery, Worthington, Middlefield, Chester, and Blandford. Nestled comfortably together along the banks of the Westfield River and its tributaries, these seven small towns have worked together for over one hundred and fifty years to build a community. This photographic essay chronicles the development of these towns and villages from their earliest days. In the beginning, many were farming communities, sustaining themselves with the earth's bounty. With industrialization in the nineteenth century came numerous mills along the river, and the seven rural towns were forever changes. A look at the people, places, and events of this period will prove surprising for many, and will certainly preserve valuable information about the region's history for generations to come.
