Merrimack NH: The Baby On The Stove

MERRIMACK, (Thornton’s Ferry) has an infant twelve weeks old, which weighs two and one-quarter pounds, with its clothes on, but when born it weighed two and one-half pounds.

Its place of repose in the day-time is on the stove, which is heated by coal, thus an even heat, of 90 degrees is obtained, which is essential to keep life.
