"Lines Written on the Departure of Salmon C. Perry" Wilbraham, October 16, 1828
“Lines Written on the Departure of Salmon C. Perry”
From the Osmon C. Baker Collection

Osmon Cleander Baker attended the Wesleyan Academy (now Wilbraham Academy) in Wilbraham, Massachusetts, from 1827 to 1830.  He was a member of the Wesleyan University class of 1834, although he didn’t graduate with his class, perhaps due to illness.   The collection contains some notes from his time at Wesleyan and correspondence.  The subject of this excerpt,  Salmon Perry,  had also been a student at the Wesleyan Academy.
