Excerpt from Memoir of William Crowninshield Endicott, Vol. 8
A glance at the scenes and the circumstances of his boyhood will shed some light upon the happy development of the man. He inherited a proud name, and with it a just pride of ancestry, which he cherished through life without affectation and without suffering it in the least to impair his democratic sympathies. It was a great distinction to be the descendant and bear the name of the first Governor of Massachusetts, who was sixteen times elected to that most important office, and who stands as a great historical figure.
