Excerpt from Memoir of Abbott Lawrence

When Mr. Lawrence died, in 1855, a public meeting of the citizens of Boston was held in Faneuil Hall, at which Mr. Everett and Mr. Winthrop made addresses; and brief memoirs were written, one by Mr. Prescott at the request of the family, and one by Mr. Nathan Appleton for the Massachusetts Historical Society. It was the expectation that these would be followed by a more extended biography, for which ample material existed in the letters and papers left by Mr. Lawrence. This work was postponed for various reasons, and in 1872 the larger part of the papers and correspondence which had been depended upon for the purpose was destroyed in the great Boston fire.
