May 31. In Portland, Hon. Hugh Johnston Anderson, 80. A biographical sketch nd portrait of Governor Anderson may be found in the first volume of this History. His Washington residence continued until the spring of 1880, when he removed to Portland, relinquished the turmoil of political life for the companionship of his books and the congenial enjoyment of his family.

Governor Anderson was endowed with a superior intellect, which he strengthened by study and observation. He was a constant reader of English and French literature. His tastes inclined to history, and his knowledge of that subject was accurate and comprehensive. To his cultivated mind was added a refinement of manners and a cheerful disposition, which made him a most fascinating companion. These characteristics were adverted to soon after his death, in a Boston newspaper, as follows:—

"The writer remembers, many years ago, before the building of the Maine Central Railroad, travelling by stage with the late Mr. Anderson. He had just before been elected Governor for the third term. The journey was from his residence in Belfast to Augusta. It was winter. The snows of successive storms had filled the roads with vast drifts, through which the coach floundered, laden with a motley freight of passengers, who were forced from time to time to turn out and lend a hand to extricate the coach and horses from the treacherous gulfs into which they had sunk. The cold was intense, the journey most tedious, lasting from four in the morning of a January day till the same hour of the afternoon; but all the way the Governor was the charming companion which they who knew him well always found him to be, abounding in reminiscences drawn from a keen observation of character, coming rapidly to our rescue, in our weariness, with some well-told story of past or current events, given with such exceeding good nature, such good taste, and so much of a native grace withal,—and even a little stiffness and formality of speech,—that probably none of that tired company ever forgot the narrator, or ceased to recall him with feelings of grateful pleasure."

At that time he was in the prime of his life. He had been in Congress during two terms, had been Governor of his native State, and afterwards he performed many public duties of usefulness and importance; but wherever he went and whatever he did he carried with him the same completeness, conscientiousness, exactness, and urbanity which were fore-shadowed by his genial and high-toned address.

Mrs. Anderson, whose maiden name was Martha J. Dummer, and to whom he was married in 182, survived her hus-


[p. 409]
band only a few months. Two of their children, Thomas Davee and Joseph Dummer, died in Portland. The others, Gen. John F., Miss Hannah A., William, Henry, and Horace, are settled there. (Miss Hannah A., the last survivor of these, died in 1912.)

1We were in error last week in stating that Mr. Beaman is the only survivor of the active business men of Belfast fifty years ago. H. H. Johnson began in the dry-goods trade in 1828, near the present location of his son and successor. William O. Poor in the same year, having been given his time by his father, commenced the apothecary business in the ell of the old Huse Tavern, now Howes & Co.'s store. The ell covered the present location of the Woodcock and Chase stores. Mr. Poor informs us that H. H. Hay, of whom he bought his first stock, is still in the wholesale drug business in Portland. Such stability in business and business relations is not often found.—Republican Journal, April 3, 1879.
