    Notes 
    • "Levi attended the grammar school and high school in Lowell until the age of fifteen, when he began his business life with a china and glass dealer in Lowell, and from that time on he was never an expense to his father. He was an honest, straight-forward and energetic lad, and soon became chief assistant to his employer; remained with him until he retired from business and then entered the service of J.C. Ayer, of Lowell, for whom he travelled all over the United States several times, making contracts with the newspapers for advertisements.
      In September, 1888, Mr. Merriam contracted a severe chill while watching the construction of the cottages at Brantham. In October, he sufffciently recovered to go, accompanied by his wife and daughter, to Nervi in Italy. Here, however, complications ensued, and he became seriously ill, so that early in December his son in London was telegraphed for. On his arrival a family council was held, and as Mr. Merriam wished strongly to go home, it was decided to make the attempt in spite of the doctor's advice. The journey was successful. Mr. Merriam reached home, if anything, better than when he left Italy, but nevertheless, his time had come, and about two weeks later, on the second of January, 1889, he passed away very peacefully in the presence of his loved ones."
