Community Circle The Community Circle of the Federated Church met at the home of Mrs. David Fuchs, on the evening of Wednesday, Oct. 13. Various articles of business were considered. An article, brought by Mrs. Vinson Rowell and read by Mrs. Newton Bolles, told of the early days of the women's group. From 1913-1925, it was the Ladies' Union. Mrs. Fiske, the first president, opened the meetings with a gavel made from a beam from the barn in Greensboro where the first Sunday School was held in Vermont. The first summer sale was held in 1914. In 1925 they voted to disband and become a new society, the Community Circle. The first town meeting dinner was held in 1926. Historical Society The Historical Society met on Tuesday, Oct. 12, at the Town Hall. Mrs. R. DeWitt Mallary presented an ex- cellent paper on the division between Fairlee and West Fairlee. She said there were three reasons generally believed to be the cause of the splitting, in 1797, of W. Fairlee and Fairlee. One is the dif- ficult topography between the towns. The second is that W. Fairlee citizens wanted to keep the copper deposits for themselves. The third ex- planation was the rivalry and enmity between Israel Morey and Natbaniel Niles• The sketch in Abby Maria Hemenway's Gazetteer contains one other reason handed down by tradition and perhaps not very reliable: Gen. Israel Morey and the Honorable Natbaniel Niles, pioneer settlers, influential men of Fairlee, and large land-holders, the former living in the easterly and the latter in the westerly portions of the town, allowed their rivalry over social position and wealth to develop into cruel hatred. Neither was willing to part with one "jot or tittle" of his possessions or influence. To preserve the undisputed sway of each, a division of the town was resorted to as a remedy. Philip Robinson, in his history of Fairlee says cautiously that "Some feel that it was because of the unfriendly feeling between Israel Mercy and Natbaniel Nfles".
