Mr. Maltby adds: "Chief Justice of the Supreme court, and later Governor Simeon Baldwin, of Connecticut, was a lecturer in Yale law School, and because he and my grandfather looked so much alike I asked him about his lineage and we found they were second cousins."
Note. His grandfather must have been a fine looking gentleman. Judge Baldwin, it seems to me, was the most impressive figure in all New Haven. Nearly every afternoon one could meet him, on his high-bred black horse, riding on Whitney Avenue. A very fine looking gentleman.
