RSW's Diary Comments

"Painted circa 1930. Painted from the yard of Mrs. John F. Moors, beautiful place in Heath, showing the west view of hills through the tall straight boles of the majestic maples in her yard. Bought by Mrs. John F. Moors of Heath and 150 Fisher Avenue, Brookline, Mass."



Additional Notes

"Mrs. John F. Moors of Heath, and 150 Fisher Avenue, Brookline, Mass--owns a very early and small canvas of the Heath beech tree, and a 27 x 30 done from her Heath yard of tall maple boles with mountain view in between."


In 1890, thirteen years before the New York Stock Exchange was where it stands now, John F. Moors and Charles Cabot established a small investment firm in Boston's financial district. Its mission then: handle the personal investments of the two founders and their friends. Through time, that mission has expanded. Today, Moors & Cabot manages the assets of thousands of investors from our Boston headquarters and branch offices throughout the country.

Mr. and Mrs. John F. Moors had a summer home in Heath, Mass. It was called "The Manse." Prior to the Civil War the Manse was an important and famous stopping place in the underground railroad in which fugitive slaves could travel to the north. They were housed in the cellar of the Manse.
