Before me is a letter from Rev. Henry to Rev. Jonathan (4) Maltby. Dated: "Oxford, Ohio, March 6, 1849. "My dear 'aged Friend' in his 90th year."
"Your interesting communication is before me--interesting be- cause it comes from so venerable a source; also because it speaks of what has for some time past, engaged my thoughts, although I have yet done nothing, I have long contemplated an effort to obtain the information which you are seeking, and I hail with pleasure the pros- pect of having my wishes gratified.

I should like to be able to trace them back and learn what relation we have to Dr. Maltby of England whose name occurs frequently as authority in our Theological Books. I had thought that perhaps the old records of some of your N.E. towns, they used to be kept, might reveal the information desired. I heard of S. Maltby, Esq. of York Mills frequently while at
