ofthe papor having, been accjmpllshed, Mr.
Foland, by roaaon of iElirm health, soid the
Frceman to Jacob Scott of Barre. Danlel P.

nt tho beglnnlng of 1850. It passcd into the
handa of S. S. Boyce ln 1850, and ln 1801 C. W.
Wlllard became editor and proprletor. Undcr

became consplcuoua and influontlal ln atate nnd
local polltics. In 1809 J. V. Wheelock became
halt owner, nnd ln 1873 solo proprletor nnd
