Excerpt from Manchester and Its Leading Business Men: Embracing Also, Those of Goffstown

September following Judge Blodget died, and his canal subsequently passed under the control of the Middlesex canal owners and proved a great benefit until it was superseded by the railroad. His monu ment in the Valley cemetery bears the inscription, the pioneer of internal improvements in New Hampshire, and this is one of the few inscriptions which are as true as they are complimentary. Peace hath her victories no less renowned than war, and the triumph of Judge Blodget's is no less honorable and noteworthy than that of Stark's at Bennington. Judge Blodget asked Boston capitalists to erect the mills which were built thirty years later by other parties, and his business prescience is indicated by his remark made shortly before his death that Derryfield was to be the Manchester of America. Scarce two years and a half elapsed before the first step towards the fulfillment of his prophecy was taken by the name of the town being changed to Manchester by a petition granted by the Legislature, June, 1810.

At the town meeting of March, 1846, a committee was appointed to petition the Legislature for a city charter as soon as they thought it expedient to do so. The population of the town had become so large that it was absolutely necessary to make such changes in the mode of government as would ex pedite the public business of the community, and therefore the committee lost no time in presenting their petition, the result of which was the passage of the necessary legislative act June lst, the city charter being accepted by the people at a meeting held August lst, by a vote of 485 yeas and 134 nays.
